To our Mothers, Grandmothers, Sisters, and Girl friends: We hope your Mother’s Day honors who you are as a woman. 65 years ago women recieved the right to be ordained in the United Methodist Church. It was a difficult achievement, one that we do not take for granted today. For we know that the privilage of being a woman is not respected by all. For every woman who is lifted up, there are countless women being torn down with words, financial abuse, and physical abuse. Honor the women in your life every day of the year, but especially recognize them on Mother’s Day.

Are we worshipping in person? Kaneville Church follows the guidelines from the State of Illinois. Kane County is in phase 4 allowing 50 persons or 50% of capacity. We are registering, wearing masks, distancing and sanitizing hands when we come to worship. Our safe practices include UV filtration and 4 times per hour air exchange. If you are comfortable to come we are glad to have you.
Cross Cares 4 Community
We planted a cross on the front lawn of the church during Holy Week and laid out markers and a sign with instructions. We invited the community to TAKE their grief TO THE CROSS. We received these responses. Covid has been hard on us. We acknowlege losses we may never get back and postponements that have been pushed back too many times. In looking to the resurrection, we have faith that God will redeem this time!
Food Pantry Distrobution
Handing out groceries moves us to consider the needs of families falling through the cracks in our community. They don’t plan to be poor! Because the job market is tough and medical expenses high, local familes visit the food pantry to supplement their groceries and relieve their bills by $100 per week. So on the first Thursday of the month our volunteers hand out groceries to grateful clients. You’re welcome to join us.
Palm Sunday Parade
Our second annual parade of palms saw twenty cars and lots of excitement. This year was much colder than our first pandemic safe parade. It’s fun to make some noise in Kaneville and cheer on our fellow citizens with the joy of hope in the Lord. Hosanna! Jesus Saves!
Easter Egg Hunt
Every year we have an inhouse egg hunt. Pictured here are the adults chatting while the kids search. We are outside at the garden chapel. Though the garden looks dreary in it’s pre-spring mode, our friends are joyful and bright for the future we see together!

Announcing June Worship Series
“Guided by God’s Spirit”
Grab your compass and your Bible; we are starting an outdoor worship series called “Guided by the Spirit.” In this first series of the summer, we discover HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT LEADS US through life. Paired with our Bible Lessons we will follow the four directions of the compass and a Native American Circle of Life. Prayers each week focus on age, life stages, health, and celestial bodies. Come every Sunday in June to know the wholeness and holiness of God’s provisions. 9:30 am Sunday Worship will be in the Garden Chapel located behind the church and online at Facebook Live and YouTube Premiere.
