Our rained out Millennium Park Concert gathering has been rescheduled for Wed, June 19th at 6:30pm. Same details as last time...Bring a lawn chair or blanket and a picnic dinner and meet us on the south end of the lawn (furthest from stage). It will be a great night of classical music, friends, and enjoying the beauty of the city on a summer night. Hopefully it will be warm and sunny this time!
Here is an awesome way to BLESS our neighborhood's newest food pantry, the Lincoln Square Friendship Center. The LSFC is looking for volunteers to serve on behalf of the pantry at the Square Roots Festival on Friday night, July 12th from 7-10pm. For every volunteer, the LSFC receives funding from the festival proceeds. And...all volunteers receive free admission to the festival, food and drink coupons, a shirt, and an invitation to a Volunteer Appreciation Party 2 weeks later at the DANK Haus. Wow! If you'd like to join a group from our church and volunteer, fill out this Volunteer Application and submit it along with a photocopy of your driver's license to Tammy by Sunday, June 30th.
This summer we want to join together as a community to BLESS our neighborhood. The 'B' in BLESS stands for 'Begin with Prayer.' One way we are going to live out this BLESS strategy is to mobilize as many people as we can to pray for one specific thing each week this summer.
