Pentecost Sunday May 20

It's commonly understood that Pentecost is the beginning of the Church.  It's a sort of "birthday" of the Church.  

Acts 2

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.

May 20, Confirmation Sunday is Pentecost Sunday

We're celebrating Pentecost as we welcome GUC 8th graders into the life of our church.  Confirmation has been a year of learning, questioning, sharing and finally deciding and choosing.  Join us for this official welcoming of these confirmands into our life and congregation.

Beach Sunday

A Wonderful Glencoe Union Church Tradition

We've been gathering for worship on the beautiful Glencoe Beach for many years.  It's a much loved tradition for us.  We meet for worship at 10:00 am and stay for a cookout on the beach.  This worship celebration is an opportunity express gratitude for our life together and time to remind ourselves of the blessing of living is such close proximity to the beauty of Lake Michigan.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for Beach Sunday on June 17.

What to expect when you join us

Our Sunday Worship Service is at 10 am.

What to expect when you join us on Sunday morning-
Our service tends toward what most folks would consider traditional, with hymns and the accompaniment of our beautiful organ or piano.  We’re a congregation that loves to sing and we are often led in learning new songs by our choir.  Each time we gather, we strive to generate a worship service that honors God, nurtures faith, relates to everyday life — and inspires hope.

Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. We believe the Communion Table is not ours, but Christ’s, and so it is open to all.

Following worship we always gather for fellowship and refreshments.  We enjoy getting to know visitors, and it’s a great time to find out who we are, what we are all about.

Please, come and join us!
