We may gather for breakfast before church, lunch after Sunday worship, a potluck dinner, or an All-Church potluck picnic and barbeque in early June.
At Christmas we enjoy hosting a family friendly party complete with tamales, a piñata, crafts, and an impromptu Christmas pageant.
The schedule may vary throughout the year, but when we meet, there’s always plenty of food for visitors who would like to join us.
Our church prepares and serves meals at the shelter in Marquette Park several times a month. We periodically collect supplies, such as outerwear and underwear, for Southwest Chicago Homeless Services guests.
We recognize that the holiday season can be overwhelming. Our Blue Christmas service is reflective and designed with a different tone and a different focus than traditional Christmas services. Worshipers who are processing grief, loss, injustice, or hard seasons of life have found this service to be especially meaningful.
We regularly host Organ Concerts performed by the Southwest Suburban Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.
We provide free restrooms, snacks, a place to warm up, or even feed and change a baby.. We've provided hospitality during the South Side Irish Parade for decades.
We sponsor a team in the Beverly Breast Cancer Walk each year on Mother's Day morning. We meet at Ridge Park, walk the neighborhood with 15-20 thousand fellow walkers, and then come straight to Mother's Day Worship in our Breast Cancer Walk t-shirts. What a great way to honor the strong women in our lives by clocking more than 3 miles before the Worship Service even begins.
Each Memorial Day we walk, bike, wagon, or stroller our way in the Beverly and Morgan Park Memorial Parade. In 2022, we were especially proud to honor the organizers of Operation HerStory honoring women veterans as the Grand Marshalls, Beverly/Morgan Park resident Commander Elisabeth Pennix, US Navy Reserve, and Master Sgt. Ginny Narsete, US Air Force (Retired).
For more than two decades, our church has freely offered a large gathering space for a local AA group It's in the Book.
Since their opening in 2018, we have partnered with Heritage Leadership Academy, a private faith-based school in the Morgan Park neighborhood. We have been blessed by Principal and Mr. Woods and their shared faith in Jesus and education.
