New Announcements

1. Several years ago the Barnabas Group was created in our Morton congregation. The purpose of the group was to connect people who have special needs with those who have a desire to help. One of these groups is the “Visiting Team”. The mission of this team is to serve by visiting those who are widowed, live alone, recuperating from surgery or illness, or those who just want the fellowship. Many have been blessed by this ministry. If you would like to be a part of the visiting team, either by visiting someone on the list or having your name added to list to be visited, please contact Sister Jane Kieser at 266-2540 or email
