05.22.20 MESSAGE FROM PASTOR MARY
I imagine many of you are wondering when we will return to in-person services at the church building. That is unknown at the moment.
We will re-open for up to 50 person services when we can be confident that we can do it in a way that is worshipful, welcoming, and safe. Each of these aspects is challenging under our new circumstances.
The church’s Strategy and Administration and Spiritual Formation and Leadership Teams have both had initial discussions about the procedures that would need to be followed for spacing, music, liturgy, flow of persons through the building, and the various rooms that could be utilized so we could accommodate more than one service on a Sunday morning. We will continue to learn from our sisters and brothers in other states, as well as other large community gatherings in Illinois such as our school systems and sports.
In the meantime, please join us for ON-LINE CHURCH.
You are welcome here—for any and all of these opportunities.
• Facebook Live: Wednesday, May 27 at 7pm.
• Zoom Fellowship: Starting Sunday, May 31 at 10am— watch for more info.
• Small Groups: Our next all church offering begins in early June. Join us for 5 Cups of Coffee (discussions about faith and discipleship). The link to sign up will be coming soon!

Your donation will help provide critical support for our ongoing ministry, including a special focus on providing emergency food and shelter for people in our community that are experiencing homelessness due to the Corona virus disruption.
We are an energetic, growing community of followers of God. We are a traditional church for a modern world, seeking to serve Christ here, near and far away.
We offer two Sunday morning services:
- 9am Worship Service, with our Chancel Choir singing (during the school year.)
Holy Communion is offered on the first Sunday of every month.
- 10:30am Jazz Worship Service, with smaller musical ensembles and a jazz influence. Holy Communion is served weekly.
- Nursery is available for both services
- Sunday School for Pre-K through High School meets at 9am
Please join us as we love God, serve others and grow together. If you are new here, visit our “New Here” page for more information.
And … see you on Sunday.
