Better Together!

Those we serve face many barriers in their lives. One of the most common challenges that is expressed to staff and volunteers is isolation.  We ALL need support! God created us for community. The mission of ICM is to glorify God by restoring and empowering families and one way we do this is to provide those we serve with the chance to experience true community. Our new program, entitled "Better Together" will offer opportunities for those in similar life stages and circumstances (e.g.  young single moms) to meet in small groups and receive support and guidance. While adhering to public health recommendations, we plan to launch weekly meetings this month! Another aspect of Better Together that we are so excited about is the opportunity to utilize and involve volunteers!  We all need each other and have lessons we are able to learn from everyone we come in contact with. Be on the lookout for more information about how you as a volunteer can be involved and feel free to call the office if you would like more information (217-355-4446). We can't wait to update you on Better Together in the coming months!

The Holidays Are Around The Corner!

One of our favorite times of the year at ICM is the Christmas season when we are able to bless the children and families we have served with a few gifts in order to make their Holidays a little more bright! Be on the lookout for an Amazon Wish List as well as gift card requests in the next month! Every year we are blow away by your generosity during the Christmas season. We look forward to continuing to bless those we serve again this year. 
Prayers and Praises

1. Pray the Lord brings those in need of community and support to our Better Together program.  
2. Pray the Lord uses Better Together to truly be a place of support and rest for all who join. 
3. Ask the Lord to continue to meet the financial needs of ICM. 
4. Thank the Lord for the opportunity to serve Him through ICM!
