Celebrate Pentecost! Sunday, May 24th.
On Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate the “birthday of the Church” (not GUC but the Church, that was born on Pentecost in Acts 2) with a potluck Chili-and-Corn-Bread lunch after church. Bring chili, cornbread, or a salad to share -- or just come and eat.
Consider wearing reds, yellows, and orange on Sunday to remember and represent the tongues of flames that appeared over the disciples when they began to talk about the great things Jesus had done in ways that everyone could understand. This is a fun day for kids and adults alike. Don't miss it!
The Rev. David J Wood will be preaching.
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".

Faith in God is not as easy as it used to be. Have you ever thought that?
The philosopher, Charles Taylor in his book, A Secular Age, explains why that is so. Last Fall, David Wood led a three session seminar exploring the first section of Taylor’s book. David will co-lead our second seminar on Charles Taylor with Professor Scott Paeth from DePaul University, Scott is a Professor of Religious Studies at DePaul and has taught several courses on the work of Charles Taylor. There is no requirement to read A Secular Age. Just join us for what will be a stimulating conversation about the experience of faith in the early 21st Century.
