Attention!!
El Vista Family,
Academy Students and Visitors
Target Date to return to Syler Street is
May 8th!!

Work is progressing nicely and if all things go as scheduled and inspections occur as expected, we hope to be back in our home building for services on Sunday, May 8th, Lord willing. Keep praying as prayers are being answered. 

Until then, we will continue meeting at 1001 West Loucks, Peoria, Il (between University & Sheridan, near Forest Hill) for all church services & academy classes.

We are very grateful to Riverside Community Church for the use of this facility and their patience during our repairs.

Weekly Reflection:
Patience

Hebrews
Chapter 12

1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
