East Park hosts the Macon County 4-H Crossfire program, which includes archery and air rifle. Instruction and practice is in-house during the fall and winter months. Shotgun is held at a different location with instruction and practice offered during the spring. These classes specialize in beginner and/or less experienced shooters. Youth ages 8-18 learn about basic shooting fundamentals, safety techniques, firearm maintenance and responsible gun usage from certified, state trained adults.
We are grateful for the many men and women who serve in our nation’s military, and we seek to lift some of the burden caused by their sacrifice. We can honestly say that we understand firsthand the unique needs and pressures military personnel and their families face as they serve our country, because we have many veterans of the military in our church.
To help these heroes deal with the pressures they face, we have partnered with the Illinois National Guard in a program called “Partners in Care” as part of our ongoing outreach to our community. Our service personnel are putting their lives on the line for us, and we are here for them when they need help. We provide physical and spiritual assistance for military personnel and their families before, during, and after deployment. Our services include counseling and even just a listening ear. If we can be of help to you, please contact us.
