The Ashton Community Dinners will begin again on September 9th. We will meet at the Mills and Petrie Building rather than the churches so that we have room to observe Covid-19 guidelines. The meal will be provided for a suggested donation of $7/person. All are welcome whether or not they can contribute. Please do not bring your own table settings or a dish to pass. We will welcome Kim Torman, the AFC High School principal as our guest this month. Please RSVP so we know how many meals will be needed by calling Sherri Stauffer, 815-319-2070, by Sunday, September 6th. The dinners will continue at the Mills and Petrie on the second Wednesday of the month through the month of May.

Psalms 30:5 | 

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 | 

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Luke 6:21 | 

 

Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.June 7, 2020

As of today, Reynolds Church will resume in-person worship in-person worship in our sanctuary, with occupancy limits as allowed under The Illinois Department of Public Health, encouraging the use of masks and social distancing between households. Corporate worship, indoors, carries particular risks at this time, and we encourage those considering attending to weigh carefully those hazards.


Check our Facebook page at  https://www.facebook.com/pg/ReynoldsUMCAshton/videos/?ref=page_internal   as we continue to develop online options for those unable to attend in person.
