The 2015 Morgan County Area CROP Walk will take place at Community Park in Jacksonville on Sunday, October 4, beginning at 1:30 p.m.  Walkers of all ages are encouraged to participate.  Registration will begin at 1:00 p.m. under a tent near the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce Office.  The full route is 4 miles with options for those who can only walk a shorter distance. 


During the CROP Hunger Walk, adults, families, youth groups, and friends of all ages not only raise money to help others but they also experience what it is like to walk.  Millions of people have to walk long distances each day for food and water just to survive. 

This new route has been chosen to make hunger needs locally and around the world more visible.  The money raised through the CROP Walk goes to Church World Service (CWS) to help those who are poor, displaced, or hungry around the world?  $25 of each $100 raised locally will be returned to food center/pantries in Jacksonville, Murrayville, and Franklin. 

Information about CWS and CROP Walks is available at www.cwsglobal.org.  Individuals may donate online or give their donation to any walker.  Make checks to “CWS/CROP”.  More information about the local walk is available from Jared Reno at Central Christian Church.  CROP Materials are available in the Central Christian church office. 

Other hunger related activities are being planned as part of a hunger awareness week from October 4 to 10.  Local area churches will sponsor a Mobile Food Pantry on Thursday, October 8 at 5:00 p.m.  Location TBA.  Volunteers will be needed that day.  (In case of rain the event will be postponed until Thursday, October 15.)

Worship Services on You Tube

Did you know that Congregational UCC has a channel on YouTube? Some who work on Sundays have requested that we make audio available of the services. Faith Ministry Team responded to this request, purchasing a digital audio recorder, setting up the YouTube channel and uploading the audio (in video form). (A HUGE thank you to Michael Bendorf!) The last few months’ services are available. Here is the link to our channel:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn8r-xvn-41NP9jBc4cp74Q?feature=em-subs_digest
