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 during the pandemic. The live Facebook feed keeps them engaged. Also a premier link on YouTube is ready 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. A children’s bulletin shares pencil games to learn the lesson. Kids are welcome to work on this together with our teachers. All generations participate in sharing prayer joys and concerns followed by a corporate prayer.
Holy Communion is served on the first Sunday of every month and on special occasions. The pastor shares the bread and juice at the front of the church, but those less mobile can request service at the pew bench.
Participants usually arrive between 9:20 and 9:35am. 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 greeters station for a temperature check and attendance. They pick up their bulletin and leave their offering before being seated by an usher. Everyone wears masks in worship.
Worship with us for six weeks before you decide on your next church. We never forget the people we meet in person or online.

What’s Next in Worship?
Our Lent Worship will focus on the Lenten Banner created several years ago and used each year in worship. This year we will have families or couples tell the story of the objects used during Holy Week.
