This Week's Sermon

This Sunday we will welcome our district superintendent, Dick Wisdom, to our 10:00 a.m. worship service. (REMEMBER…..IT’S A 5TH SUNDAY AND THERE IS 1 WORSHIP SERVICE!!!) He will be following along our journey through the Acts of the Apostles and looking at chapter 15 and talking about Jesus’ Secret Weapon. There is always great discussion about who should be “in” the church and who should be “out”, but there is a secret weapon!!! We will also have a time of singing, so be prepared with your favorite hymn as we “sing our faith”.

It will be a busy day for us because following worship we will have soup and salad for lunch and participate in a discussion about future worship services. We need to hear your opinion on the matter, so please plan to be with us.

Some of you have already signed up to visit the DuSable Museum of African American History with the Outreach Committee. If you have not signed up but are interested in going, please let the church office know or just show up. We will make room for you.

Join us this Sunday at 10:00 a.m.. ALL are welcome.

Last Week's Sermon

This Sunday we continue with our look into the Acts of the Apostles following the resurrection of Jesus. The disciples are constantly finding themselves in setting after setting where they have to share the news of what happened just a few weeks prior and how the resurrection has impacted their lives. Over and over again their faith is challenged by groups of people who don't have a clue about what happened or are astonished that it did happen. 

As they are traveling the roads sharing the unbelievable resurrection story, they meet up with an unlikely character from Ethiopia....clearly the last person their society (or ours today seemingly) would have even a second conversation with. Clearly Philip is reminded that sharing the story of the faith is something that crosses all kinds of chasms and this is one. 

We too are reminded that sometimes we all need "JUST A LITTLE HELP ALONG THE WAY" to a clearer understanding of our faith. Where are the places you have found that help? Where are the places that you have offered that help, whether knowingly or unknowingly? Where are the places that we still need to be ready to receive and/or share the Resurrection story? Let's see if we can find a few on Sunday!

Join us at 9 or 10:30 a.m.. ALL are welcome.
