During this season, we will be meeting in-person and virtually. Our intent is to keep and strengthen our bonds of friendship during this time via text, FaceTime, Zoom, and intimate live gatherings. We can still "gather".
Here's how we'll be connecting until further notice.
We're so thankful we can join together again for worship services. During this season, we will be choosing a home in which to gather. Here are the House Churches for Winter 2020 / Sprint 2021:
Wheaton - 9:45a
West Chicago - 10a
Virtual Church - 4pm
At each of these Church gatherings, we'll be listening to a short message and then discussing the Word of God over a meal (with the exception of Virtual Church, there will not be a meal). You can RSVP and receive the exact address of the House Church by clicking here. Click here to join Virtual Church.

During this time, we want to be sensitive to the needs of the families in The Orchard. Please consider giving generously and joyfully to the benevolent fund. We want to make sure that every family at The Orchard is supported during this intense economic transition. Because of mass layoffs, Serenity House has asked our church to fill in the gap with monetary donations, canned goods, cards, and any leads on job openings. To give to the benevolent fund, you can use this link. If you are able to donate canned goods, food, and other items, please email one of our Community Leaders - Kim Kuczaj at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take care of yourself. If we can help you pray or if your family needs anything during this, please message us - email@example.com.
