Walk or Run a 5K - September 9

World Relief Chicago's Refugee 5k is back for our second year! This family-friendly event will once again be held at the beautiful Bunker Hill Forest Preserve. Our runners range from casual to competitive runners and the event is open to all age groups. As you run along the paved North Branch Trail you'll learn about the journey refugees must endure as they flee their homes, all while supporting refugees and immigrants right here in Chicago. Register!

 

Peacemaker Village is Coming

We will be offering a Peacemaker Village this summer - for adults, children, and families - as part of our efforts to bring peace to our homes, our neighborhood, Chicago, and around the world. We will include activities such as peacemaker skills, nonviolent alternatives, conflict resolution, and more. Talk to Paul Tyler, Nancy Williams, or Tom, on how you can be involved.

2017 Offering Envelopes & Electronic Giving

We encourage members and friends to give their offerings electronically, which is easier for you and makes our bookkeeping simpler too. Talk to church treasurer Mike Lindgren for info. Offering Envelope boxes will be at the back of the worship area this Sunday. If you would like one but none has your name on it, talk to Jack Fritts. If you need them mailed, contact the church office.
