Church invites public to its Rally Day

SYCAMORE – Federated Church in Sycamore invites the public to its annual Rally Day, Sunday, Sept. 8.

The 10 a.m. worship service will include “water communion,” in which people pour samples of water collected from their summer travels into a communal basin, symbolizing unity in the congregation. Partway through the service, children will go to a Sunday school program. A nursery is available for younger children.

Immediately after the service, an all-church indoor picnic will be held. Members and guests are asked to bring a dish to share and their own table service. The Board of Membership and Fellowship is coordinating the meal and will provide beverages. After the meal, the Board of Religious Education will host activities for all ages, including a special giant Jenga which many adults find irresistible.

Notify the church office at 815-895-2706 if you plan to attend. Federated Church is on Route 64, west of downtown Sycamore. Parking is available behind the building.
