Parish News
New Trier Township Food Pantry
This Sunday, August 5:  
 
This summer we have two ways you can help provide food for our neighbors in need:
 
1)  Donate cash to the pantry jar during church at the park.  We will give the cash directly to the pantry as donations drop off significantly in the summer while the need for food increases due to children being off school and not taking advantage of free breakfast & lunch programs.
 
2)  Bring produce from your garden to church at the park.  Gardens are starting to flourish, and the pantry gratefully welcomes fresh produce as that tends to be the most expensive and thus something their clients tend to spend less on.  (Please wash the produce and place root vegetables in resealable plastic bags once dry at the request of the Pantry.)

Our Church: Did you know? null
The magnificent Tiffany window and the cross in the Sanctuary are original to the building and were gifts given by the Hoyt family when the church was built. These original features create a sense of history in our worship space. Please click here for the interesting details about The Stained Glass Windows at the Church on the Hill.
