Music is healing to the Soul! Come to the Oasis, 3413 W. Medill, for an evening of great music surrounded by the beauty of the gardens. The 90-minute concert, featuring local talent, is free and open to the public. In addition to the music, you will hear an update on the Campaign to restore a Mental Health Center for the Logan Square, Hermosa and Avondale communities. Snacks and beverages will be available for a donation. (The donations will be shared with organizations that support mental wellbeing.)
'FUN IN THE SON' DAY
Sunday, July 29, 10:30 am
We're taking church to the Beach—the Foster Avenue Beach—for worship, a BBQ picnic, fun and fellowship! So pack up the family, the swim suits, food to share, and the lawn chairs for a great day of fun in the SON.
Ongoing Services & Ministries
Sunday Bilingual Worship Service - 10:30 am (12:00 pm on the 3rd Sunday of the Month)
Along with the Nuestra Señora De Las Americas congregation, we express our worship of God through music, praise, Scripture, responses, prayer, and weekly celebration of the Eucharist. Our worship style reflects our diverse cultural traditions. Songs are sung in Spanish, English or both. The sermon is usually in English, but a summary is provided in Spanish. The first Sunday of the month is designed to engage children and youth. Occasionally, we "make our own Sunday" where members are encouraged to use their talents and gifts to encourage one another.
Godly Play & Youth Group - As announced
As we transition to our new location at 1st Lutheran, we're expanding 'Godly Play' and our youth program. 'Godly Play' is a unique Montessori-based approach to teach children (K - 6th Grade) spiritual truth. Youth in grades 7 and up have their own age appropriate faith formation discussions. See the home page each week for updates.
Sunday Dinner - 11:00 pm (on the 3rd Sunday of the Month)
Once a month, we prepare and serve a Sunday Dinner to anyone in the community that is hungry. We serve the meal at First Lutheran Church, 3500 W. Fullerton Ave., starting at 11:00 am. Our worship service begins at 12:00 pm following the meal in the church sanctuary.
The North Side Prayer Fellowship - 11:00 am on Thursdays
This prayer circle meets in a member's home. Contact the church for details.
Monthly "Wellness Check" Bible Study - 7:00 pm (on the 3rd Wednesday of the Month)
Using a variety of spiritual practices such as Lectio Divina, guided meditation, and our labyrinth, this group supports one another to experience spiritual growth.
