Loving God ~ Following Jesus ~ Serving Others
Groups and Ministries
Bible Study Group: One Bible study is offered weekly. Adult Bible Study meets at 6:00 pm on Wednesdays. Other Bible studies are offered at different seasons of the year. We explore the Word of God from different perspectives to see how God speaks to us and how His Word pertains to our lives today. We look forward to seeing you.
Chancel Choir: Adults and high school students who love singing perform moving anthems in church. Our award-winning Choir Director leads the Chancel Choir in practices Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. If you love to praise God through singing, please join us. The Chancel Choir does not sing over the summer.
United Methodist and Congregational Men: The men of the church community gather on the third Saturday of each month for breakfast and fellowship. The also sponsor a pancake breakfast on Easter Sunday morning and a dinner in October.
United Methodist and Congregational Women: The women of the church community gather monthly to plan and participate in mission projects for the church. These mission projects are open to the entire congregation. Their fundraising activities include serving lunch to the West Chicago Lions Club each month, an annual rummage sale, a pecan pie sale at Easter, an annual holiday bazaar and luncheon and a dinner planned around a special musical theme such as “South Pacific” or “State Fair”. Their direct mission project include: assembling health kits that are distributed to victims of disasters such as earthquakes or hurricanes; collection of new hats, mittens and gloves for local school children in need; and providing holiday gifts and/or food for residents of DuPage County Convalescent Center and local families in need. Joining this group of committed women is a unique opportunity to move in harmony with other women who have been responding to God’s grace for over one hundred and thirty years. No matter who you are or where you are in your life at this moment, please join us.
