Video Gaming Update

Thanks to everyone who prayed and came and shared their concerns in
the Village voting to allow video gaming in Mahomet.
I am pleased to report to you that the Mahomet Village Board voted 3 to 2
to not add video gambling to the next meeting agenda for a formal vote.
If you think that your participation didnt matter I was told today that
through those who came out at least one board member changed their
mind on the matter! Praise God.
What does this mean?
It can and most likely will be back next month as an item to be voted on
again. In the interim CEFCM along with ILCAAAP (See what they do at: will be hosting sessions to educate the public on what
gambling is and why the Village Board is attempting to bring this to our

For many months we prayed for Macey Rilea's baby to stay IN and grow, and I'm happy
to announce she has arrived! She was born Wednesday the 15th, and is a totally healthy
mama's girl! Praise God!
A great way to help a new mama is by feeding her family.
Would you and /or your family be willing to take them a meal?
All the information you need is provided on this website.
This website has the calendar which gives
Macey access to see who is delivering meals and what is
being provided. I hope we can fill up all the available dates!

Yesterday, Kat Blakeslee, had an free 15 minutes and she

used it to make a difference! Presenting herself before
God - Alive, Holy, and Acceptable she pushed through
what is oftentimes awkward, and amassed a whole sheet
of signatures from fellow students against video gaming!
When you see Kat thank her. Not for amassing a sheet of
names, or even pressing out into what is oftentimes
awkward, but for listening to that still small voice...
AND THEN pressing into what is oftentimes awkward,
and amassing a sheet of names. That sheet represents her
obedience, assurance, and belief that Christ is greater!
I wonder what it might look like if each of us grabbed a
sheet of paper, prayed, and then set out to make a

The Key...
Romans 12:1
I appeal to you therefore,
brothers, by the mercies of
God, to present your bodies as
a living sacrifice, holy and
acceptable to God, which is
your spiritual worship.
F.B. Meyer shares that his early
Christian life was marred and
his ministry often paralyzed
just because he had kept back
one key from the bunch of keys
he had given to the Lord. The
key he kept back was to one
room for personal use where
he kept all his shame and guilt.
The effects of the incomplete
presentation of F.B. Meyer
before the Lord was found
in a lack of power, lack of
assurance, and a lack of
joy and peace. The Joy of
the Lord - Worship, begins
when we hand over the last
What keys are we holding onto
and need to give to the Lord?
Let us be a congregation and
people who fling the doors
wide open and invite the Lord
into every place and space for
the praise of His glorious
