The 5th Season of Jazz Prayer!

Friday, November 16, 2018 - 7:30pm

Jazz Prayer continues at our temporary location at the First Baptist Church, 820 Ontario St., Oak Park! November's theme is "The Journey" and we will explore this thing that we often call our life. Some days are filled with joy, others have nothing but hardship. There are days when everything is stuck and others that move too quickly. The goal is to stop and take notice of where we are. The goal is to remain the present.  Doors open at 7:10pm for appetizers and conversation. Read more »

Worship on the Move

The Randolph Street building is now a fire remediation site. We have moved operations temporarily to the First Baptist Church, 820 Ontario Street, Oak Park. Entrances are directly across from Scoville Park. The sanctuary is on the second floor. We ask that you leave parking directly in front of First Baptist for their congregation, unless you have ability issues. Parking is available in the Public Garage at 720 North Blvd. by the Green line elevated train. Wait at the elevator lobby for a shuttle if needed.

Education Hour at 9am and Worship at 10:30 am.
