In our 10 a.m. service this week, the Chancel Choir will be leading us in worship with Franz Schubert's Mass in G Major for choir, strings, organ and vocal soloists.
The most famous of his mass settings, the work combines Classical structure and grace with a Romantic harmonic language and expressivity. Join us in exploring this 19th-century take on the traditional Latin Mass. Stay after church to celebrate the choir's leadership throughout the year.
The Rev. Rebecca Anderson 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 & Death: Ashes to Ashes
The end of life is in its beginning, and life is led inexorably to its end. Is death something to be feared or accepted or both?
Although death is inevitable, we seem to know nothing about it. Is it always and simply the end of one's existence? Is there nothing more to be said? Is that enough? Since death itself is mute, where shall wisdom about death be found? Not surprisingly, the Bible is a good place to start.
