Church invites public to Rally Day

Published: Friday, Aug. 30, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Federated Church in Sycamore invites the public to its annual Rally Day on 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. Beverages will be provided. After the meal, the Board of Religious Education will host games and activities for all ages, including a special giant Jenga.

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.
