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. 
Every 2nd Saturday morning in June, July, August -  we will meet at GUC at 9:00.

Upcoming later this summer:

Ravinia Night Under the Stars

Back Porch- Two evenings of music and fellowship in the backyard of David and Jennifer Wood.


A time of transition

Our Associate Minister, Rev. Rebecca Anderson will be taking on a new work in a new place.

Farewells are rarely easy…and yet they are always important.  The best farewells are those that pave the way for the one departing to fare well in the days to come.  Saying farewell to Rebecca will not be easy—that we do it well will be a great gift to her and a celebration of how her ministry has been such a gift to us.

Rebecca’s final Sunday with us will be June 26.  Plan to stay afterward for fellowship and celebration.

For a glimpse of what’s next for Rebecca, go to the following website: This new venture is wonderfully exciting! 










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 3:    Choice        Psalm 1
July 10:    Wonder        Psalm 8
July 17:    Patience        Psalm 74
July 24:    Confession    Psalm 51
July 31:    Absence        Psalm 22

All Are Welcome


All Are Welcome

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!
