Ongoing Services & Ministries
Sunday Bilingual Worship Service - 10:30 am (1:00 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 there is always a summary 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. Currently, we are meeting outdoors in the Labyrinth at 2324 N. Kimball. We will move to an indoor location for Fall and Winter.
Godly Play & Youth Group - 11:00 am (on the 3rd Sunday of the Month)
Children and youth have their own teaching time prior to the Sunday Dinner once a month. Children K-6 are instructed using Godly Play, a unique Montessori-based approach to teaching children spiritual truth. Youth in grades 7 and up have their own age appropriate discussions. Both groups meet at 3413 W. Medill. At 12:00 pm, they are walked to First Lutheran Church, 3500 W. Fullerton Ave. for Sunday Dinner and worship with the rest of the congregation.
Sunday Dinner - 12:00 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 Noon. Our worship service begins at 1:00 pm following the meal in the sanctuary at First Lutheran.
The North Side Prayer Fellowship - 11:00 am on Wednesdays in August 2017
This prayer circle meets in a member's home. Contact the church for details.
