Outreach Efforts
Free food giveaway- this event occurred on November 24, 2020 on the church parking lot and 301 individuals registered their households. Food was provided by DOT foods and 2 semi-trucks from IBSA delivered to our parking lot for the giveaway.

McClernand School – ongoing outreach with the birthday sacks for each child celebrating a birthday. We are doing it monthly. Sacks are delivered to Dawn Mobley who does the handout.
Audit of Facility
As a professional courtesy, IBSA is going to conduct an on- site audit of our facility to determine what would be the best investment in upgrading/improving the building and grounds short term and long term.
Property and Grounds
Furnace upkeep – Eades Furnace evaluated and did a “Fall Cleaning” and necessary upkeep needed for all the furnaces on Monday, November 23, 2020. In fact, the cleaning of the dust in the “safe room” going into the Fellowship Hall caused the fire alarm to activate and the fire department responded.


RECOMMENDATIONS approved as follows:
The Leadership Team’s recommendations that the 2021 missions’ goals for Lottie Moon, Annie Armstrong and Illinois Missions goals be $3,000 each were approved.
The Deacons and Leadership Team recommendation was approved for the following individuals to become Deacons/Deaconess:
JoAnn Emerson, Chris McVay, Linda Tisdale, David Morr and Will Robinson.
The Pastor Search Team’s recommendation was approved for Doug Morrow to become a 20 hour weekly bi-vocational pastor beginning January 1, 2021 at an annual salary of $30,000 with no benefits. This would allow the church to employ another pastor at a later such as a planting pastor, etc.
The Leadership Team’s recommendation was approved that the Together Church be granted permission to continue meeting at our church for worship services or other meetings.
The Leadership Team’s recommendation was approved that the church adopt the initiative “Everyone Hears” which is a Church led outreach program to reach the 1800+ families in our community.
