This Sunday at Christ Church 
Summer Park Service  
Starts This Weekend June 16

During the summer months, we celebrate Holy Eucharist outside.  If you have not experienced one of these services, you are in for a real treat.  June 16 through September 1, the 9:30AM service will be at Maple Street Park  on Sheridan Road in Winnetka.  The park is one block south of the Church On The Hill, on the east side of Sheridan, where Maple St. intersects Sheridan Rd.  There is very limited parking at the park, but street parking is available on Maple and the lighted intersection will allow you to cross Sheridan safely. You can also use the Lloyd Beach lot.   If the weather does turn bad, the 9:30AM service will occur at the Church on the Hill , 784 Sheridan Rd.  Just look for our sandwich boards in front of the church and at the entrance to the park.

Helpful Tips.....
  • Bring a blanket or chair.
  • Always a good idea to bring bug spray.
  • The shade can be chilly.  (We do live near Chicago.  You know...colder by the lake.) Bring a sweater or sweatshirt.
  • The dress code is no code.  Shorts and a t-shirt are most appropriate.
  • Bring your leashed dog along too!!

The Taizé  community   (pronounced Tay-zay) originated in Taizé, France, and is based on a foundation of love, reconciliation, and forgiveness. Taizé services are contemplative and moving, and include readings, periods of silence, prayer, and simple chant-like music.

W e dedicate this prayer service to Peace.
