Eastertide Worship

You are invited to a six-week journey of faith this Eastertide (April 16 – May 21) where we interact with the new life breaking forth in creation. This season in worship and fellowship we will interact with stories about our natural environment.

Bring your stories and examples to share on the following weeks:

Week One 4/16 – Turtles in Illinois, Our Watersheds

Week Two 4/23– Fish, Fox River between Yorkville and Millhurst

Week Three 4/30 – Monarch Butterflies, pollinator gardens

Week Four 5/7 – Frogs, an indicator species, sweet grass

Week Five 5/14 – Crows, cooperation with nature

Week Six 5/21 – Mourning Doves, planting seeds for birds

  Worship in Kaneville Illinois

We worship in a historic sanctuary during the cold months and in a garden chapel during the warmer months. Some prefer to worship at home due to physical limitations. The live Facebook feed keeps them engaged. eady in the afternoon.

 The service is traditional, but casual and often has a gospel feel.

 A talented keyboardist leads our music bringing memorable songs from a Choir, a Praise Team or soloist.

 We follow worship from printed materials, but it isn’t hard to follow without them.  All generations participate in sharing prayer joys and concerns followed by a corporate prayer. Children are invited to leave worship at 10 am for a VBS style lesson on the heroes of the Bible. 

Holy Communion is served on the first Sunday of every month and on special occasions. We pick up our crackers and juice ups as we enter for worship and remain in the pews for the blessing and partaking of the elements. Worshippers at home are encouraged to find bread and a beverage to bless and take.

Participants usually arrive between 9;15 and 9:30 am. An elevator is available at the back of the church building to take you up to the sanctuary level. Parking is available at the front of the church and in the back. We have a “grassy parking lot” behind the tall pine trees for overflow. 

Facebook users comment a “good morning.”  In person worshippers check in at the Welcome table for a quick hand wash and attendance. They pick up their bulletin and leave their offering before being seated by an usher. Everyone wears masks when they arrive, but usually remove them while sitting in the pews or eating at fellowship time. 

Worship with us for six weeks before you decide on your next church to visit. We never forget the people we meet in person or online. Call the pastor for a phone, in person, or zoom visit. We want to meet you.
