Federated Church invites new members

Published: Friday, Jan. 4, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Anyone interested in becoming an official member of The Federated Church of Sycamore is invited to an Inquirer Session on Sunday following the 10 a.m. worship service.

The session is about an hour in length, and will begin at 11:15 a.m. While all are welcome to attend worship and other church activities, official membership confers the opportunity to vote at all congregational meetings.

New members will be received Jan. 13, during the worship service. Those interested in joining Federated Church or those who would like to learn more about the church, can contact Pastor Dennis Johnson at the church office at 815-895-2706. Childcare will be provided at the session as needed.

The Federated Church is a progressive community of faith affiliated with both the United Church of Christ and the Unitarian Universalist Association. Its history dates back to 1927 when two local congregations, the Congregationalists and the Universalists, voted to merge. The current congregation is open and affirming and welcomes any and all who wish to worship with them.

The church is located at the corner of Route 64 and Greeley Street. Parking is available behind the building.
