SAVANNA, Ill. — The Savanna First United Methodist Church will hold its annual “Blessing of the Tractors” service on Sunday, April 22, after the regular 10:15 a.m. worship service, with Pastor Joey Garcea officiating.

The public is invited to attend these services.

Those who would like to have their tractors blessed should bring them to the church parking lot by 10 a.m. The church is located at 2100 Chicago Ave.

As area farmers begin working in their fields in the spring, they have concerns about safety, good weather, reliable equipment, and a successful harvest. During the “Blessing of the Tractors,” the church congregation and visitors will join these farmers in asking God for His blessing and guidance.

All are welcome to stay for lunch in the church Fellowship Hall following the service.

For more information, contact the church at (815) 273-2345.
