Faith Formation on Sunday Mornings

Kids, youth and adults are invited to Social Hall at 9 a.m. on Sunday morning for our weekly Faith Formation classes.

This Sunday, join Kim Mendoza in Social Hall from 9:00 AM - 9:45 AM for our intergenerational education session as we continue the unit for Lent entitled Love God, Neighbor, Enemy. Looking at John 13:1-20, we'll talk about unconventional and unexpected ways to love others.

Next up:

3/26 Love God, Neighbor, Enemy: Be Courageous

4/2 Love God, Neighbor, Enemy: Live Peaceably

Join us for worship at 10 a.m. on Sunday morning

Rev. Nicole Chapman-Farley is preaching "Brave and Vulnerable" in the chapel and Rev. Dr. Brian R. Paulson is preaching "Living Out Love" in the sanctuary. The sanctuary service is also livestreamed on our YouTube channel.

Kids' Church this week!

There is a Kids' Table in the chapel and childcare is available for infants and toddlers in our nursery, which is located near the library. Any children who would be more comfortable in an age-accessible worship experience are invited to head to Kids' Church, upstairs in rooms 204/205, after the second reading, guided by shepherds from both the chapel and the sanctuary.

You could be a liturgist!

We are looking for a few more folks who would like to serve as liturgists – that is, reading scripture and leading the congregation in prayer. All materials will be given to you – no creativity needed. You sign up online for the date(s) that you’re available – you will NOT be assigned a spot. If you feel this a good fit for you or if you have questions, please text/call Beth at 847-971- 5111 or you may email her at  

Thank you for your PI Day donations!

Our youth offer a big "Thank You" to everyone who donated or purchased pies last Sunday at our PI Day Fundraiser! They raised $691 to support their summer youth trips. The link for online donations will remain open through this Sunday.

See you at Lunch Bunch!

Come to Lunch Bunch on Tuesday! We'll be serving a St. Patrick's Day themed lunch and talking with Dr. Sarah Miller about issues of global displacement and our role in finding solutions that can help our neighbors and our own communities thrive.

Sarah Miller is a senior fellow with Refugees International, where she covers the Great Lakes and Horn of Africa, as well as the global governance of the refugee regime. She has consulted for UNHCR, the ILO, the World Bank, the IRC, and Mercy Corps, and has worked on refugee issues with think tanks and various NGOs in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Asia.

Join Rev. Amy for Evening Sabbath on Sunday, March 26 at 5:30 p.m.

Lent is the season of self examination. No better time for the spiritual practice of “Ignatian Examen” which explores what we are grateful for, what we are least grateful for, where we find Grace and life, and where we experience pain and resistance. We will reflect, and then offer our reflections up in prayer. Join us at 5:30 p.m. in the chapel..
