Summer Sundays: Walking the Way Less Traveled

"God is a moving target...We need to constantly look for -- and stay on the move for -- God." (Arther Boers)

IMG_0209Hebrew Scriptures are full of exhortations to walk in God’s way. Jesus described himself as The Way. And early Christian believers talked about themselves as belonging to “the Way.”

We here at GUC on are this same, ancient, on-going pilgrimage. This summer -- with art, music, and many voices from the congregation -- we're telling stories of being on The Way, a way described in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.

Rev. Rebecca Anderson will be preaching this week on The Way of Blessing.

Writers Theater of Glencoe - performing "Doubt: A Parable" at GUC

We are thrilled that Writers Theater has chosen our church for this inspired selection.  Our Great Hall has been transformed into a theater, with stage, lighting, brilliant sets and seating for 80.

We've partnered with WT for a number of years, providing them with a rehearsal space in our basement.  While their new building is in construction (opening in 2016) they were looking for a performance/production site  during the 2015 season.  Because of our ongoing friendship we were led to the decision that we would open our building to their production of "Doubt".
