Discover the Joy & Compassion we share.
The Longest Night
December 14 at 7 pm
This service of scripture, stories, music, silent reflection and healing prayer recognizes that Christmas can be a bittersweet time and provides time and space to acknowledge our sadness and concern. We invite you to experience this meditative worship that allows time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God, and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ.
Children lead worship on Dec. 11 at 9am with our annual Christmas Pageant! Come to the rehearsal (Sat. Dec. 10 9-10am with costume pick-up 8:30-9am or after rehearsal) and stay for Breakast! Kiwanis hosts a Breakfast with Santa in our Fellowship Hall on Saturday, Dec 10 8-11am. No RSVP required.
PADS & Soup Kitchen
Volunteers and Food are needed for our upcoming PADS (Dec. 13) and Soup Kitchen (Dec. 16) service opportunities. The PADS shelter we serve in Waukegan houses 30 men; our Soup Kitchen ministry is in collaboration with St. Mary’s Church in Lake Forest and serves dinner to about 150.
Worship is at the heart of our life.
We invite you to join us on Sundays at 9 or 11 a.m. for a more traditional service,
or at 5 p.m. for the first@five contemporary 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.What to Expect
