Friends in Christ,
I am so pleased to be worshipping with you on Sunday mornings. We can look forward to Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas together.
The Presbytery of Great Rivers has approved my commission to your church. That means that I will be your half-time lay pastor, moderating session, representing you at presbytery assemblies, administering the sacraments of communion and baptism and conducting marriage ceremonies. Just as important to me is that I will be providing pastoral care for the Beulah congregation. You may reach me by my cell phone (309-721-1545) and by emailing me ( It is my plan to hold office hours on Thursday mornings. Of course, other arrangements may be made.
It is my joy to get to know you better during the coming months.
Blessings Abound!
Commissioned Lay Pastor Sheila Sheer

The Blended Worship Sunday, which occurs every 4th Sunday of the month, will be postponed until April 2018. The Worship Committee wants to make some changes to this service to make it special and it will take some time to plan the changes. Thanks for your understanding.

Thought for the day:

Mighty God. In this season of Alleluia we know that death and despair have been vanquished, but, like Thomas, we need to see and hear and feel your living presence. We come to you with the confusion of mixed feelings. Bend our hearts, O Lord, to the fullness of your power for life, and hold our hands that we might be joined with you in resurrection hope. Amen
