Summertime Gatherings at GUC

Bike & Brunch
This GUC summertime activity has been successfully going on for four years.  We gather at the church with our bikes, helmets and water bottles and then enjoy a delightful trip to our brunch location. Our leaders are experienced bikers who know the route and level of difficulty and carefully plan each outing to make the experience fun and safe for all. 
Our final bike trip for the summer is Saturday morning in August, 14 -  we will meet at GUC at 9:00.

Upcoming later this summer:

Ravinia Night Under the Stars

Tuesday, August 2, 2016
5:30pm – 9:00pm

Our annual GUC gathering at Ravinia includes a pot luck picnic…Ravinia style. It’s always a warm gathering for conversation and listening to the beautiful music of the CSO.  This summer we’ve selected August 2, when the CSO will be performing Schumann's Piano Concerto, "New World" Symphony.

Summer Worship Series: Prayers for the Journey

This summer we are going to do our best to listen closely to the ancient prayers of faith that rise from the depths of human existence and reach relentlessly for the heavens.  The image of a tree planted by the streams of water—its deep roots that draw nourishment from the depths and its soaring branches press persistently upward—stands as an enduring image of the prayerful life.  

July Psalms in our Series:

July 17:    Patience         Psalm 40
July 24:   Confession     Psalm 51
July 31:    Absence         Psalm 22

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!
