Visitors

 A CHURCH IS A COMMUNITY FIRST

Newcomers to our church are seeking a spiritual home, a place for fellowship, an opportunity to serve, a religious education for their children, or a place in which they are free to explore their own spirituality. We’re glad that you found us, and we invite you to get to know our Beloved Community!

WHERE TO FIND US

We are at 2100 Half Day Road, ½ mile east of I94 and 1 mile west of Waukegan Road on the north side of the road. Our driveway is on the west side of the building and if you keep going up the hill and around the building you’ll find visitor parking in our main parking lot.

HOW DO I FIND MY WAY?

Once through our front doors you’ll be greeted by one of our members. Fill out our visitor form and put on a name tag. That way people will be sure to greet you!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Dress is casual. You are welcome here.

WHAT’S AVAILABLE FOR MY KIDS?

If you have children, you will want to come a few minutes early so you can get them settled into the appropriate Religious Education class. Approximately 100 children and youth, preschool through high school, participate in our religious education (RE) programs during worship service. The Sunday morning classes are designed to help children develop spiritual values, ethical sensitivity, and an understanding of other world religions. Typically children sit with their parents for the first 15 minutes of the service and leave to go to their religious education classes after hearing a children’s story. If your children would rather stay with you in the worship service, that’s okay too! Some people also choose to sit in the hearth room, just outside the sanctuary, where there is a speaker to be able to hear the full service.

CHILDCARE

Childcare is provided each Sunday at 9:45am-11:15am while parents/guardians attend worship service. People of all ages are also welcome to attend the full worship service.
