Recent Highlights

On Sunday, April 28th, our church hosted the annual Ladies Spring Tea event at the McHenry Country Club.  88 ladies were present in attendance, & Jim Gibbons had led a presentation about Princess Diana.  Those attending were encouraged to wear hats or fascinators, as well as to bring donations of hygiene products or cleaning products for the Home of the Sparrow.  There was also a quilt raffle, as well as raffle drawings for books on Princess Diana, as well as Friends of the McHenry Public Library.

Thank you to everyone who attended - we look forward to meeting once again in 2020!

Jennifer Walker's preschool kids, pictured above, recently took a group picture, to encourage the rest of our church family to participate in our Diaper Bank!  WELCA will be collecting diapers of all sizes for children & adults in a tub in the narthex starting in May.  The elderly are in need of diapers, as well as babies, & those who are ill or have disabilities.   Please help us by placing packages of diapers in the bin whenever possible.  You can also donate funds to buy diapers - make out the check to SOTH & put "Diaper Bank" in the memo field, then drop it in the slot outside the office.  For questions, please reach out to Bev Blundell or Michele Madsen at michelemadsen19@yahoo.com
