Transforming Not Conforming!
Starting September 27 at 11 a.m., we plan to gather at the Church building, out on the Sarah Street sidewalk if weather permits -- otherwise inside. Covid-19 safety protocols will be required, including wearing a face mask and maintaining six feet physical distance from each other.
During the pandemic, we have mostly been gathering to worship God each Sunday and also meet, converse, and pray other days by phone conference call.
We plan to still offer the Phone Conference call-in option for any of the vulnerable population who should not be attending in person. Please call our office for info on how to call in to the weekly service.
Throughout the week are ministries and support -- via phone and phone conference.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN US VIA TELEPHONE CONFERENCE CALL FOR SERVICES, PLEASE CALL OUR PHONE AT LEAST A DAY AHEAD AND LEAVE YOUR NAME & PHONE NUMBER. WE'LL PLAN TO CALL YOU AND GIVE YOU THE NUMBERS AND INSTRUCTIONS YOU'LL NEED.
God is faithful and cares about each one of us deeply! Jesus rose from the grave, conquering death, evil, and condemnation. We have every reason for hope because of God’s great love and blessing given to us in Jesus, in the Spirit, and in Jesus' Church, God's family alive in Jesus' Spirit, love, and power to share with each other and the world. For now, we are sharing this mostly by phone, email, etc., and not in person because that is the most loving and health-conscious way to live in this situation -- for ourselves, for each other, and for the world. Please pray for each other and don't hesitate to call if we can help in some way.
With love and prayers, Pastor Kathy
Greetings to you with the abundant and neverending Love of God! We invite you to share your journey with us in faith, friendship, creativity, and action in the Spirit of Jesus and the Living God. We are a diverse group of people brought together by our belief in Jesus Christ. We are a small but strong congregation active in community service in our urban neighborhood and the larger world, finding ways to make a positive difference. We seek to be authentic, unpretentious, welcoming, and spiritual -- and always growing in love and understanding.
Our Church has an incredible history (our roots in South Side dating back to 1833). Our building was begun before the Civil War and the main section completed in 1869! Additions expanded community use. Our gym was the first gym for public use in the neighborhood. And we have been restoring and renovating our whole facility for its many, many uses today. We are co-creating our future with open minds and hearts, and we would love to have you come and be part of this exciting adventure with God.
