Who: Parents, families and children; single, married and any stage of life; gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgendered or straight; any ethnicity; local friends and far-off neighbors; seekers, newcomers, conservatives and progressives, long-time Christians ... and you!
What: A relaxed, personal and communal experience that connects traditional faith stories with our lives. You are welcome in your Sunday best or casual jean wear, and by all means, bring your water or coffee mug with you.
Where: Our church is located on the corner of Grace and Keeler in the Old Irving Park neighborhood on Chicago's northwest side. We’re just two blocks from the Irving Park blue line stop and the Irving Park exit of 90/94. During the week, most people enter the church through our Grace Street entrance; this is a one way street that connects from Pulaski to the east. Through this door you can easily reach our offices, meeting locations and fellowship hall. Both the Grace and Keeler entrances are open on Sundays.
When: Services begin at 10 a.m. on Sundays, with holy communion weekly. Holy Communion with a table open to all people is part of how we are empowered to do ministry through the week, and we celebrate our identity as the people of God together. During worship, children are welcome everywhere! Toddlers are free to roam the sanctuary, and we have a rocking chair in the sanctuary in case that is helpful. We have families of all ages and configurations in our church and we celebrate that! During the school year we have Sprouts for children ages 4 - 11 (Sunday School) for a portion of the worship time. Children of all ages are also welcome to attend the whole of worship! Fellowship with food, friends and neighbors follows each service.
So come join us! We are a welcoming, diverse community of faith serving Christ and our community from Grace!
