it's coming.

We invite you to explore our upcoming events, from special services, to new Bible Studies, to exciting fellowship events. If you have any questions about what's coming, please contact us at 630.355.9655.

Communion returns

On Sunday, September 6th, we'll be starting to receive Holy Communion on our normal schedule of the first and third Sundays of the month. We are taking extra precautions in preparation and serving Holy Communion, which include having the wafer in individual plastic ramekins and wine or grape juice in individual cups only (we will not be using the chalice/common cup for the near future). One wafer and one individual cup will be placed on a little plate, so that you can take a plate without touching the Communion elements of others. We will bring people forward to receive Holy Communion person-by-person or family-by-family to continue the safety of social distancing.


If you have any questions about our practices or theology of Holy Communion, please call Pastor Schoon at 630.355.9655. 

Sunday School Returns

On Sunday, September 13th at 9:45am, we'll be starting Sunday School for the kids again at Word of Life. We'll be utilizing a hybrid approach to support families who are worshiping in person as well as families who prefer to participate by Zoom. For those that attend in-person, we'll be socially distancing by families and we'll be fostering an atmosphere where those who join online can participate and be engaged as opposed to simply "watching."

new sermon series: restore

We invite you to join us for our new sermon series, Restore, on the Old Testament book of Ezra. Ezra is the story of the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem after its destruction by the Babylonians. This story has practical implications for our present circumstances during COVID-19 and the process of restoration and rebuilding of our lives. This is a 3-week sermon series that starts on September 13th.
