Region 3 Tier-1 Mitigation - 10/29/2020
Our church is in Region 3 in Illinois. On 10/29/2020, our region was placed in a “Tier-1 Mitigation” phase. For churches, this means gatherings are limited to 25 persons or fewer OR 25% of room capacity. Since our current numbers are below both these thresholds, we will continue in-person worship as normal. All congregational singing has been removed and we reiterate that all worshippers wear face masks, sanitize their hands often, and social distance appropriately.
Remembering a Healing Servant of God
Pastor Raymond Dale Radae’s long battle with recurring cancer ended with his passing in the morning hours of Monday, October 19th. He faithfully served and healed our congregation during his 10-year appointment from 2006-2016. We will miss him dearly and his sensitive, pastoral heart, warm smile, and healing ministry poured forth on us unconditionally and unreservedly.
His visitation is from 10-noon on Thursday, October 29th at Worden UMC in Worden, IL (103 S. Lincoln St.) with a service immediately following.
A group will be leaving Edinburg around 9:45 to attend visitation and service.
