Choir Sunday, May 19

For this year's Choir Sunday we will present the Czech composer Leoš Janáček's (pronounced "yah-nuh-check") setting of the Lord's Prayer, sung in Czech, and written for choir, harp and organ.  Janáček sets the prayer through a Romantic, folk-music-inspired lens, incorporating lush sonorities and a metrical landscape evoking the folk music of Bohemia. We will be joined by Chicago musicians Autumn Selover on harp and Connor McCreary, who will lead the ensemble as our tenor soloist. And of course, the Chancel Choir will be accompanied by the inimitable Dr. Cho on our fantastic Casavant organ.

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.

We are a creative faith community that invites personal spiritual exploration and encourages members to live the questions and serve our neighbors. Whatever your race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, you are welcome here as a beloved child of God

Please, come and join us!
