Chritmas Adoption

This year our Christmas family consists of a single mom, Angel, her son, Ethan (5) and her daughter, Aresheana (14). Their "wish list" items are indicated on paper ornaments on the table in the narthex. If you would like to participate, please take one. Please keep in mind the following guidelines:

  1. All gifts must be new.
  2. Return the gifts wrapped and labeled with their name. DO NOT use the paper ornament as a label!
  3. Do not put your name on the labels as the township wants to keep all identities confidential.
  4. DEADLINE: Dec. 3. This is the last Sunday for gifts to be returned.
  5. Please include Gift Receipts for all clothing, electronic & appliance items, & anything else which you feel may need one.

There is a second way to give: Please see the table in the narthex and/or Sandy Lykken (847) 895-7134.

Thank you for showing Christ's love in this way.

Christmas Fellowship Meal

Immediately following the service on December 3, we gather together for our all church fellowship meal. Please sign up in the narthex to bring either a main, a side/salad, or a dessert. The theme is “Holiday Favorites,” so bring a favorite family recipe in one of those categories to share. Regardless of what you can contribute, we want you to join us! Questions? Please contact Angela Herrera (

Choir Practice

The choir practice is being held each Thursday evening at 7:00 at the church.
