Beach Sunday

A Wonderful Glencoe Union Church Tradition

We've been gathering for worship on the beautiful Glencoe Beach for many years.  It's a much loved tradition for us.  We meet for worship at 10:00 am and stay for a cookout on the beach.  This worship celebration is an opportunity express gratitude for our life together and time to remind ourselves of the blessing of living is such close proximity to the beauty of Lake Michigan.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for Beach Sunday on June 17.


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!
