Peoria Sam's Club Teams Up with Pajama Program (Fri. Oct 31, 2014 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm)

Sam's Club of Peoria and Pajama Program are combining efforts for the third consecutive year to collect new pajamas and new books for children.

 

Created in 2001, Pajama Program is a nonprofit organization with 60 chapters in 33 states. This program collects and distributes new pajamas and new books to local children who would otherwise not have these items. Since its beginning the organization has donated over 2 million new pajamas and books to children in need.

 

There is an urgent need to collect new pajamas for these children before "Danger Season," starts in October when temperatures begin to dip to the freezing point. These youngsters in need, particularly those living in temporary arrangements or waiting to be adopted, will benefit directly from the contributions as frigid temperature begin to creep in.

 

Sam's Club hopes to collect 100 new pajamas and 100 new books for children in need. A colorful, pajama-decorated collection bin will be located near the front of the club for the duration of the drive. Donors are asked to drop off a pair of pajamas or a new book in the bin. Pajama Program will deliver the gifts to local children in need at the end of the campaign.

The Christian Center is once again thrilled to host the Father-Daughter Purity Ball. It is our pleasure to hold high the banner of purity in the midst of a culture that destroys it.

 

We hope you will join us as we encourage young women to commit to moral purity and help them understand the beautiful and righteous life God offers them.

 

The Bible lays the responsibility of protecting daughters at the feet of their fathers. We desire to charge men to take up this mantle of responsibility!

 

God thinks the protection of a woman’s purity should be extravagant and so do we! We look forward to this formal evening and hope you will join us. The event is open to all girls, ages 12 and up.

Conklin's Barn II Dinner Theatre presents "The Fox on the Fairway" (Sat. Nov 1, 2014 6:00 pm)

Conkin's Barn II Dinner Theatre

Goodfield, IL 61742
Reservations, 309.965.2545

http://barn2.com/

Conklin's Barn II Dinner Theatre is very excited to announce the Barn debut production of Ken Ludwig's hysterically comic ode to golf, "The Fox on the Fairway," starring Bob Lane Jr. and Eddie Urish opening September 18th for a seven week run at the Barn in Goodfield. The show will be performed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings and Sunday brunches through November 2nd.

 

"Fox on the Fairway" is a tribute to the classic Marx-Brothers style farce by Ludwig, the author of popular comedies, "Lend Me a Tenor" and "Moon Over Buffalo." "Fox" is the tale of the rivalry between country clubs Quail Valley and Crouching Squirrel and their heated annual golf tournament, which Quail Valley has lost for five years in a row, much to the chagrin of club manager Henry Bingham. This year, Henry has a sure-fire ringer on his golf roster, which leads him to make an outlandish bet on the outcome of the tournament with his rival, Crouching Suqirrel manager Dickie Bell. Unbeknownst to Bingham, his golf ringer has changed camps and is now playing for Crouching Squirrel! All is not lost, however, when Henry discovers his new assistant, Justin, is a golf prodigy. With the assistance of Quail Valley board member Pamela Peabody, who is--coincidentally--Dickie Bell's bitter ex-wife, Henry forges Justin's membership to Quail Valley and adds Justin's name to the roster. Everything will work out perfectly, as long as Justin doesn't find out his new fiancee (Quail Valley waitress Louise) has lost her engagement ring, a family heirloom. Add in Henry's monstrous shrew of a wife, Muriel, and all the pieces are in place for an outrageous romp.

 

The Barn's leading funny man, Bob Lane Jr. stars as Binghma, and the Barn welcomes back noted Peoria theatre personality Eddie Urish returning to the Barn after nearly thirty yeras, as Justin. Urish is the founder of Eastlight Theatre and Haberdasher's Dinner Theatre in Peoria and has been performing and directing on the East Coast and touring the country, most recently in the national tour of the Broadway musical, "Memphis." Mary Simon plays Pamela, with Dan Challacombe as Dickie, April Bieschke as Louise, and Pat Gaik as Muriel.

 

The production is directed by Mary Simon with set design by April Bieschke and publicity by Pat Gaik. Conklin's Barn II is known for its delicious buffet which, on evening performances, includes four main entrees featuring the Barn's renowned prime rib and fried chicken, with salad, homemade soup and cheese spread, and a choice of four taste-tempting homemade desserts. Prices for dinner and show are $33.00 on Thursday evening, $35.00 on Friday evening and Sunday brunch, and $37.00 on Saturday evening, including tax. No advance payment is required. For reservations, call the number listed above. For more information, visit the Barn online at the website listed above.

Peoria Christian High School Theater is proud to present, C.S. Lewis: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

 

Award-winning playwright, Joseph Robinette, faithfully recreates the amazing world of Narnia in this entertaining, dramatic adventure for the whole family. This enchanting stage adaption captures the spirit of the original story with cleverness and charm and includes many of the characters so many have grown to love. This story of faith, love, forgiveness and courage unfolds as the four Pevensie children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy enter the magical world of Narnia through a seemingly normal wardrobe. Stepping through the wardrobe they find a winter wonderland, but soon they realize all is not right in the enchanted land. The White Witch has taken over Narnia and has forced good out of the world. All too soon the children are engulfed in a battle of good versus evil. They find refuge in the camp of Aslan, the valiant Lion and learn the true meaning of love and sacrifice. This allegorical tale of spiritual warfare, love and forgiveness is a message for all ages. Come and join the Pevensie children as they enter the world of Narnia!

40 Days for Life: Join in Prayer (Sun. Nov 2, 2014 12:00 pm)

Contact Info:

Your Home

http://40daysforlife.com/mission/

Want to end abortion? If you do, the first thing you must do is pray. Prayer is at the center of 40 Days for Life. During each campaign, we are calling on people of faith across the nation … and around the world … to fall on their knees before the Lord, asking Him to hear our plea and heal our land. Pray outside an abortion facility. Pray at church. Pray at work. Pray in the car. Pray at home with your family.

 

Christ told us some demons can only be driven out by prayer and fasting. The two go hand in hand. Prayer keeps us rooted in the fact that it is our desire to carry out God’s will. Fasting is a sacrifice that helps us reach beyond our own limitations with God’s help.

 

Each day during 40 Days for Life, individuals, churches, families, and groups will be asked to join together in prayer for a specific request so the entire Body of Christ can unite around a common focus. These specific prayer requests will seek God’s help for:

 

  • Women who are at risk of having an abortion
  • Innocent children who are at risk of perishing
  • Men and women who carry the pain of a past abortion experience
  • Workers at Planned Parenthood facilities and abortion centers
  • Local, regional, and national leaders
  • Revival and renewal in our churches
  • Repentance and healing throughout our nation

 

People of faith are also invited to fast throughout 40 Days for Life. Christ said there are demons that can only be driven out by prayer and fasting. A fast is not a Christian diet; it is a powerful means of drawing closer to God by blocking out distractions. Fast from certain foods. Fast from television. Fast from apathy and indifference. Fast from whatever it is that separates you from God.

 

We believe that when God’s people fast with a broken, repentant, and contrite spirit, our heavenly Father will hear from heaven and heal our lives, our churches, our communities, our nation, and our world.

It also features classic radio sketch comedy and a tribute to the troops with the company in full uniforms from various branches of the military.

"An Old-Fashioned Christmas" is really two shows in one. The first act is an old-fashioned country Christmas revue featuring terrific country music, along with comedy songs and skits reminiscent of the beloved show, "Hee-Haw," as well as stirring gospel Christmas music in the style of the Gaither Vocal Band and the Statler Brothers. The second act takes the audience back to the WWII era with a USO show, featuring timeless Christmas music that premiered during that era, including "White Christmas," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." It also features classic radio sketch comedy and a tribute to the troops with the company in full uniforms from various branches of the military. As always, audience participation will feature in the fun of the evening.

 

The Barn's resident company of talented comics and terrific vocalists will be featured including Mary Simon, April Bieschke, Dan Challacombe, Pat Gaik, Chad Kirvan, Jimmy LaHood, Diann Thompson, Terri Whisenhunt, and Dave Windsor. Tamra Challacombe, one fo the most versatile musical theatre performers in Central Illinois and the Barn's resident choreographer and new Group Sales Director also makes a welcome return to the Barn's holiday show after a two-year absence.

 

The production is directed and staged by Mary Simon with musical direction and arrangement by chad Kirvan and choreography by Tamra Challacombe. Set design is by April Bieschke and publicity is by Pat Gaik. Conklin's Barn II is known for its delicious buffet which on evening performances includes four main entrees featuring the Barn's renowned prime rib and friend chicken, with salad, homemade soup and cheese spread, and a choice of four taste-tempting homemade desserts.

 

Prices for dinner and show are $35.00 on Wednesday and Thursday evening, $37.00 on Friday evening and Sunday brunch, and $39.00 on Saturday evening, including tax. The Gala New Year's Eve performance which includes a pre-show performance, hats, noisemakers, and a door prize drawing to welcome in the new year, is priced at $125 per couple.

We are focused on outreach to our community and we see a great opportunity in helping our community through our children’s ministries. This past year we have been able to provide many special events such as trunk-or-treat and our Easter egg hunt, an exciting vacation Bible school program, provide school supplies and backpacks to those in need, and send youth to summer camps. We are thankful that God has blessed us in being able to do these things and we are excited to do more in the upcoming year! This craft sale is an opportunity for us to work together as a church family to raise funds to help our community even more and we appreciate all those who would like to help us make a positive effect on this community as well.

Conklin's Travels Back in Time for "An Old-Fashioned Christmas"

 

Conklin's Barn II Dinner Theatre is thrilled to announce an all-new edition of their annual holiday revue of music, comedy, and merriment, this year entitled "An Old-Fashioned Christmas" opening on November 6 for a seven week run on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings and Sunday brunch, playing through a special New Year's Eve performance on December 31. Wednesday evenings are added during the month of December. No performance on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day.

 

"An Old-Fashioned Christmas" is really two shows in one. The first act is an old-fashioned country Christmas revue featuring terrific country music, along with comedy songs and skits reminiscent of the beloved show, "Hee-Haw," as well as stirring gospel Christmas music in the style of the Gaither Vocal Band and the Statler Brothers. The second act takes the audience back to the WWII era with a USO show, featuring timeless Christmas music that premiered during that era, including "White Christmas," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." It also features classic radio sketch comedy and a tribute to the troops with the company in full uniforms from various branches of the military. As always, audience participation will feature in the fun of the evening.

 

The Barn's resident company of talented comics and terrific vocalists will be featured including Mary Simon, April Bieschke, Dan Challacombe, Pat Gaik, Chad Kirvan, Jimmy LaHood, Diann Thompson, Terri Whisenhunt, and Dave Windsor. Tamra Challacombe, one fo the most versatile musical theatre performers in Central Illinois and the Barn's resident choreographer and new Group Sales Director also makes a welcome return to the Barn's holiday show after a two-year absence.

 

The production is directed and staged by Mary Simon with musical direction and arrangement by chad Kirvan and choreography by Tamra Challacombe. Set design is by April Bieschke and publicity is by Pat Gaik. Conklin's Barn II is known for its delicious buffet which on evening performances includes four main entrees featuring the Barn's renowned prime rib and friend chicken, with salad, homemade soup and cheese spread, and a choice of four taste-tempting homemade desserts.

 

Prices for dinner and show are $35.00 on Wednesday and Thursday evening, $37.00 on Friday evening and Sunday brunch, and $39.00 on Saturday evening, including tax. The Gala New Year's Eve performance which includes a pre-show performance, hats, noisemakers, and a door prize drawing to welcome in the new year, is priced at $125 per couple.

The second act takes the audience back to the WWII era with a USO show, featuring timeless Christmas music that premiered during that era, including "White Christmas," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." It also features classic radio sketch comedy and a tribute to the troops with the company in full uniforms from various branches of the military. As always, audience participation will feature in the fun of the evening.

Conklin's Travels Back in Time for "An Old-Fashioned Christmas"

 

Conklin's Barn II Dinner Theatre is thrilled to announce an all-new edition of their annual holiday revue of music, comedy, and merriment, this year entitled "An Old-Fashioned Christmas" opening on November 6 for a seven week run on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings and Sunday brunch, playing through a special New Year's Eve performance on December 31. Wednesday evenings are added during the month of December. No performance on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day.

 

"An Old-Fashioned Christmas" is really two shows in one. The first act is an old-fashioned country Christmas revue featuring terrific country music, along with comedy songs and skits reminiscent of the beloved show, "Hee-Haw," as well as stirring gospel Christmas music in the style of the Gaither Vocal Band and the Statler Brothers. The second act takes the audience back to the WWII era with a USO show, featuring timeless Christmas music that premiered during that era, including "White Christmas," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." It also features classic radio sketch comedy and a tribute to the troops with the company in full uniforms from various branches of the military. As always, audience participation will feature in the fun of the evening.

 

The Barn's resident company of talented comics and terrific vocalists will be featured including Mary Simon, April Bieschke, Dan Challacombe, Pat Gaik, Chad Kirvan, Jimmy LaHood, Diann Thompson, Terri Whisenhunt, and Dave Windsor. Tamra Challacombe, one fo the most versatile musical theatre performers in Central Illinois and the Barn's resident choreographer and new Group Sales Director also makes a welcome return to the Barn's holiday show after a two-year absence.
