We welcome you to join us for our smaller, more intimate Service of Prayer and Preaching at 9am
or for our larger Festival Service at 11am.
We have a small parking lot off of Buckingham to the rear of the church that you are welcome to use when attending church functions. There is also metered parking and street parking nearby, but please note permit parking restrictions. The 36 bus stops near our front door, and we are about a 10-15 minute walk from either the Belmont or Addison el stations. You can get driving directions or public transportation options here. Our building is accessible at both entrances and we have a lift to our basement area. Other questions? Please feel free to contact us at 773-348-3679 or by email!
NEW TO CHRISTIAN WORSHIP?
There’s a first time for everything. If it’s your first time to attend Christian Worship, don’t worry – our welcome is wide, and you’ll be invited to participate as you feel comfortable. You can expect to find people of all kinds, dressed all kinds of ways, worshipping all kinds of ways. Some of us are quiet, and some of us like to clap and raise our hands. We are all ages and abilities, so our morning services have something for everyone.
NEW TO OUR WORSHIP SERVICE?
We believe that Worship is our response to a loving God, which means that everything we do can be considered Worship. When we gather on Sunday morning, we believe that we come to celebrate – our services typically include songs, prayers, readings from and interpretation of Scripture (the Bible). Some Sundays we have special celebrations like the Ritual of Baptism or Reception of New Members.
The first Sunday of the month, we celebrate Holy Communion (also called Eucharist, or The Lord’s Supper) – we practice and “open table,” which means that all are welcome to receive the bread and juice in remembrance of the story of Jesus. As part of our celebration of Holy Communion, we receive an offering of nonperishable food. The local area food pantries and shelters then distribute items. “As we are fed, so we are called to feed.”
Large print hymanls and large print bulletins are available from the ushers.
Please join us for a time of fellowship at 10am each Sunday between services!
COME AS YOU ARE
By all means we want you to come as your are. One of our main goals here is to make sure you feel comfortable. When you walk through our doors we want you to feel welcomed and loved every single time. We understand that no one is perfect. The only thing we can do is love each other and extend grace.
