Construction of our new horse corral has begun! For all of you who donated to this project…we sincerely appreciate your help!

The Corral so far….

The Children’s Farm be open again following CDC & IL state guidelines. Beginning July 5th, the farm will be open Saturdays & Sundays from 10am-2pm. We will be closed weekdays and Saturday, July 4th.

We will start holding the 8:30 am Sunday service and the 12:30 & 4:30 Vespers services, all in the Great Hall of the Lodge, live and in person, starting Sunday, June 28! Most other meetings, classes, and programs remain canceled at The Center. We realize that the situation is still in flux. 

We will, therefore, continuously monitor and evaluate the situation over the coming days and provide updates on our website, phone lines, and via social media. Presently, there have been no reported cases of the COVID-19 virus at The Center. Please check online and by telephone for updates about the resumption of programs, meetings, and other services at The Center.
