Hanging of the Greens – Sunday November 28, 9:30 – 1 pm
Christmas is such a special time of year, a time of celebration, family, friends, and the birth of our Lord. With this in mind, you are invited to join us as we prepare the house of our Lord to celebrate His birth. There are jobs for every skill level to decorate our Sanctuary, the Fellowship Hall, Sunday school rooms, and outside, so everyone can help. A light lunch will be served by the Fellowship Committee. So join us for worship and hanging of the greens.
Women Support Gathering
The Scripture is clear that we as church should care for widows and singles (Acts 6: 1-7). We start with this Bible verse to provide extra care and support for those who are lonely, singles (or married), and widows. Our goals are to provide friendship as a means for support, fellowship, care, prayer, and understanding to the single older women in the church. Our gathering will be Thursday, Dec. 16, 12:00 noon at Annie Petersen’s house. Please call Annie at 847-526-9005 if you’d like to join for December gathering.

Blue Christmas Service – December 18, Saturday at 6 pm
For some of us, the holidays can also be a time of struggling with illness or sadness or brokenness. We know some of us are facing a life-threatening illness, the death of a loved one, a divorce, job-loss, or a separation. Some single persons will feel especially alone during this time when families are so emphasized. For this reason, we will be having a service to remember the challenging parts of the Christmas holidays. God is present with us in our illness, sadness and grief as well as in our joy and celebration, and we expect the Holy Spirit to move in powerful ways at this service! Please extend the invitation to people in the area who you know are going through rough times. Even though you are not a person of Blue Christmas, come and support those who are struggling in this season and sit with them as a way of caring for them.
Join us on Christmas Eve for a meaningful Christmas Eve service.
4pm: Family friendly service.
11pm: Traditional candle lighting, carols, and communion.
