Come and see what Celebrate Recovery can do for you!! Join the Celebrate Recovery Leadership team from First Assembly of God Church every Tuesday night as we present this life changing ministry to Bloomington/Normal and surrounding communities.

6th ANNUAL LIFE BANQUET

Sep 26, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Living Alternatives Pregnancy Resource Center is holding its annual Fundraising Life Banquet on Thursday, September 26th at 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM at the DoubleTree Hotel in Bloomington.  This year's speaker is Pam Tebow.
Pam enjoys speaking for women’s groups, nonprofit fundraisers, and various events in many cities across the country, and is currently writing a book on parenting. The notoriety of the Tebow family increased when their youngest son won the Heisman Trophy following his sophomore football season with the Florida Gators. Because ESPN aired the portion of the interview with Pam that focused on her refusal to abort Timmy”when she was advised to do so, she has been given a national platform to encourage the pro-life message. In 2010, Pam and Tim were featured in a Super Bowl commercial that celebrated family and life, which, according to a Barna survey, resulted in 5.5 million people having cause to rethink their stand on abortion.”

 

The event is FREE to attend BUT RESERVATIONS MUST BE MADE IN ADVANCE.  To make a reservation please contact the Pregnancy Resource Center at 309-454-5433 or bloomington@hopeforafuture.com.  You can also visit our website at www.hopeforafuture.com for further information. The deadline to make reservations is Tuesday, September 24th.

Delavan CUSD 703 celebrates grant at check presentation ceremony

Sep 27, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Delavan CUSD 703 receives $10,000 grant to harness and use renewable energy

 District named winner in America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education

DELAVAN, Ill. (September 30, 2013) – Delavan students will have new tools to design structures for harnessing and using renewable energy. Thanks to the support of local farmers and America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, Delavan CUSD 703 received a $10,000 grant to purchase IdeaPad ultra-notebooks and equipment.

                “The new grant money will help integrate science, engineering, and math along with 21st century technology skills into our curriculum. The students will benefit because they will get an increased depth of knowledge in research, writing and designing,” said Delavan grant writer, Mary Kay Wonders.

                America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, offers farmers the chance to nominate a local public school district, which can then compete for a grant of up to $25,000 to enhance math and/or science education. More than 1,150 nominated school districts submitted applications. The Monsanto Fund will invest $2.3 million through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education grants this year.

                “In times of such economic uncertainty for our school, the grant allows us to get equipment and curriculum materials to move our students closer to the 21st century jobs that they could not otherwise obtain,” said Wonders.

                Delavan faculty, local farmers and Monsanto representatives participated in a check presentation ceremony to celebrate the district’s success. The presentation took place during the high school carnival fundraising even on Friday, September 27, at the Delavan Schools Jake Poppenga Gymnasium.

                Nominated school districts across the country submitted grant applications in the spring. During the summer, a panel of educators from ineligible districts reviewed and evaluated applications based on merit, need and community involvement. The strongest submissions were then sent to the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Advisory Council. The Advisory Council, comprised of farmer-leaders with an interest in agriculture and education, selected the winning grant applications from this pool of finalists.

“A record number of America’s farmers stepped up this year to improve math and science education in farming communities across the country,” said Deborah Patterson, Monsanto Fund president. “By nominating their local school districts to compete for this grant opportunity, these farmers demonstrated their dedication to growing the next generation. The Monsanto Fund is committed to strengthening rural America and this program is an exciting way to honor that commitment.”

America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education launched nationally in 2012 and has grown to include 1,271 eligible counties in 39 states. Since its inception, the program has invested more than $4.8 million in rural school districts across the country.

America's Farmers Grow Rural Education helps farmers support math and science education in local rural school districts. Currently in its second year, this program is part of the Monsanto Fund's overall effort to support rural education and communities. America's Farmers Grow Communities, which offers winning farmers the chance to direct a $2,500 donation to a nonprofit organization in their county, is also part of this effort. Enrollment for 2014 Grow Communities is currently underway. Visit www.GrowCommunities.com to enter to win $2,500 for your county.

To date, these programs combined have contributed more than $15 million to rural communities. To learn more about either program, please visit http://americasfarmers.com/.

40 Days for Life prayer campaign

Sep 27, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 9:00 AM

The 40 Days for Life campaign will be held in Peoria for the sixth time starting Sept. 25 and concluding Nov. 3.
The campaign features 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion, as well as community outreach and peaceful witness. Participants maintain a peaceful vigil outside Peoria’s abortion clinic at 7405 N. University St.
Postive results of past campaigns include:
o Each year more people take part on the sidewalk to be a witness for life.
o Churches are brought together in a display of Christian unity and action.
o Lives are saved with a greater witness so that more post-abortive men and women are led to healing.
Those wishing to take part in the vigil can sign up at 40daysforlife.com/peoria by clicking on the “Vigil Schedule” link.
All prayer vigil participants are asked to sign a statement of peace, pledging to conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at all times.
