"Tommy's Honour" will be featured on US airlines beginning in August and the Golf Channel beginning in September.
The award-winning, feature length movie "Tommy's Honour" is based on the book and dramatic true life story of Old Tom Morris and his son, Young Tommy, set in 1870's St. Andrews. Dr. Jim Kreutzer who's part of our church family produced the movie, which is about much more than golf - please bring the family! Check out the Tommy's Honour TRAILER

The cookout and movie are free-of-charge and open to all. We will happily accept donations, all of which will go to the Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund (DMSF) which provides high school scholarship assistance for economically disadvantaged young people in Chicago, Cicero and Berwyn. 50 Murphy Scholars who are living at Lake Forest College and working as caddies in the area this summer will be our guests at the event. There is NO CHARGE - but we will happily accept donations, all of which will go to support DMSF. All we ask is that you sign up for the event by clicking HERE. Bring your friends!
The Community Garden
July 1 Community Garden
July 1 Community Garden
As you can see in the photos, the Community Garden has grown a lot in a month. Saturday morning July 13th 7:30 am to 9:00 am is the next Community Garden work day. We’d love to have you participate in this wonderful garden that will provide organic produce to families who are part of Beacon Place. 
If you’d like to participate in the garden but can’t make Saturday morning—no worries!. Suggest a time that might work for you and we’ll make it happen. Contact ZACH for questions and information.
Intelligentsia Cup
Bike Race

The Intelligentsia Cup begins July 19th and arrives in Lake Bluff on Saturday July 27th (the second to last day of the 10 day event).  
The Community Church in partnership with World Bicycle Relief, Lake Bluff Brewery, and the Intelligentsia Cup are selling Lake Bluff Brewery Beer at the bike race! 
Question : Why would a church collaborate on selling beer at a bike race?
Answer : Because 50% of the purchase price of a beer ($6) goes directly to World Bicycle Relief, a Chicago-based non-profit organization that puts sturdy Buffalo bicycles into the hands of people in the developing world who desperately need transportation for school and work (business, medicine). To learn more about WBR viste the website HERE .
The Community Church is also organizing a raffle at the bike race . Purchase of a $1 raffle ticket will give you a chance to win a bicycle (three models to choose from). A big thank you to Intelligentsia and Lake Bluff Hub and Cycle for providing the bicycle. All raffle proceeds will go towards WBR and funding Buffalo bicycles. 
Come on down to enjoy the bicycle races and don’t forget to stop by the beer tent and raffle table—we’ll be there! It’s the easiest way to give to a good cause you’re likely to ever find.
