Downers Grove North High School
We are now recruiting walkers for this year’s Relay for Life. It will be held Friday, June 7 at Downers Grove North High School. It is, of course, a fund raising event. But it is so much more. It is a celebration for those who have survived cancer. It is recognition for those who have been caregivers. It is a time to remember those who are no longer with us. It is this ‘more” that is the power of this event. Please sign up and join us.
Call the church for further details.

Mid-Week Bible Study
Adult Bible Study
7:00 p.m., Wednesdays
We are currently studying Ephesians and Colossians. We are reading both at the same time because they parallel each other.
Lectionary Bible Study
We meet at 8:45 a.m. each Sunday of the month to study the gospel lessons for that Sunday. It is a spirited discussion.
Friday Night at the Movies
7:00 p.m., Friday, May 31
This is a great group. We will watch and then discuss The Seventh Seal. This is a Bergman film from the 1950’s. It is a powerful presentation of the silence of God. What does the silence of God mean in our lives? How do we remain faithful in the midst of that silence? Oh, the food served is outstanding. Please join us.
