Easter is a Season!

Walk the Labyrinth for 'World Labyrinth Day' on May 1

That's right. There's a day set aside for Labyrinths! And we have one of the only accessible outdoor labyrinths in Illinois at 3413 W. Medill. We'll be there at 9:00 am to introduce you to the benefits of Labyrinths.

Moms are S-heroes!

On Sunday, May 9, we will give special honor to the women who gave us birth and who bless us with their Superpowers.

Ongoing Services & Ministries

ONLINE Bilingual Worship Service
- 10:30 am each Sunday
As a bilingual/bicultural, multi-denominational congregation, we express our worship of God each Sunday 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 normally in English, but simultaneous translation is provided. Several times a year, our children and youth "take over the church" or we "make our own Sunday" where members use their wisdom, talents and gifts to encourage one another.

After School 'ZOOM'-ba for Pre-K - 6th Grade - 4:00 pm every other Wednesday
Meet friends, have fun, dance, feed your faith, tell jokes, do projects and get support via a Zoom group. See the KANSA CoNEXTion for specific dates. The group is conducted in English. Our next ZOOM-ba will be held on April 28.

- 10:00 am every Thursday morning.
This Bible study, prayer and support group meets online each week. 'STAY ALIVE' is conducted in English.

"Community Dinners" Partnership NEW
"Community Dinners" serve meals for anyone who is hungry every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon starting at 4:00 pm. Starting in 2021, we are collecting food and funds to provide their meal on the last Thursday of the month. During the pandemic, all meals are served "take-out" at St. Nicolai United Church of Christ, 3000 N. Kedzie Ave. Our next meal will be served on April 29.
