Discover the Joy & Compassion we share.

Worship is at the heart of our life.

We invite you to join us on Sundays at 9 or 11 a.m. for a worship service.

During the summer months (Memorial Day – Labor Day), we have a “come as you are” service at 10 a.m. in the Sanctuary and a concurrent service in the Playground for children, families and the young at heart.

Notice about Parking: Deerpath Entrance Repairs

Starting Monday, November 11, the sunken concrete grates on the Deerpath entrances will be repaired. This project will last 10 days, and was unavoidable and needed to be completed prior to the winter cold setting in.

Please do not enter through the fire lane as this needs to remain clear. Parking will be available on Deerpath lot, but is only accessible from the Sheridan lot. Sunday parking will be available on Deerpath Road, Historical Society, and Lake Forest College.

Thank you for your patience while we fix the grates!
