Supplies for students returning to school.

As teachers and students prepared to return to classrooms for a new school year, the community banded together to ensure that the young scholars were well supplied.

Working in conjunction with township, Love INC,  and the schools in Wauconda, Federated Church has acquired  large quantities of school supplies for students in need.

Plans for this ministry include supplying students throughout the year.  Those interested in making a contribution can direct funds to the Federated Church of Wauconda and mark them “Backpack/School Supply.”

Faith Walkers Fund Cancer Cures

Federated Church Faith Walkers Raise Over $8,000 for Annual Relay For Life Event

“Together, we have raised more money than we ever have before.”

Lou Ann Kozderka, Team Captain, delivered an heartfelt report on Sunday, June 12 at the 9:30 church service.

Weeks of fundraising included a special Night of Hope luminary service, raffles, and the Relay For Life event itself. In the end, the Faith Walkers achieved platinum level and contributed to the overall event total of over $76,000.

Despite the heat, many church members turned out for the Relay for Life event in a show of support in the fight against cancer. Thanks to everyone for their support and contributions.
