Prayer in The Garden

Every Monday evening(weather permitting) at 6:30 pm we gather in the memorial garden next to the church to share joys and concerns and lift them up in prayer.  All are welcome to come.  Please bring your own lawn chair and plan to visit with your church family in a safe, outdoor, socially distanced setting.

Worship Series - 

The Tie That Binds

Our current worship series is entitled "The Tie That Binds" based on the beloved hymn "Blest Be the Tie that Binds."  We will consider how our relationships with the Holy and with each other form and transform us.  We will affirm the power of God’s presence in our worshiping  community to inspire us to “go and do likewise” in relationship to the world.

Worship Services In Person and on Facebook Live

During COVID-19 Phase 4 of Restore Illinois our congregation has begun worshiping together at 10:00 AM on Sunday mornings in the Sanctuary.  Masks and social distancing are required and additional cleaning protocols are in place.  We will also continue using FaceBook Live to live stream the service for those who wish to participate remotely.  Follow this link to join the live feed or listen later:
