Adult Enrichment

IMG_3232_zps7590f60e.jpgOne great advantage of our small congregation is the fellowship we share through both worshiping together at service, sharing views in discussion groups at Bible Study and participating in fun social events. 

Study

Men's Breakfast Bible Study - Every Thursday at 6:30am at Bentley's
Men's Breakfast Bible Study is a small group of men who meet at Bentley's restaurant in Wood Dale to meet, greet, eat, relate, pray and discuss a Bible topic.  The group's goal is to incorporate topics discussed into each individual's faith journey.  We are not a "holy huddle", we’re simply men discussing issues of life and supporting one another. 

You need not be a member of our church to attend our group.  All men are welcome.  Our discussions are open, but what is said in the group, stays in the group.  Members respect the opinions, views and ideas of each other, and all try to "walk our talk" with Christ.  We are accountable to each other and feel that God's words feed our spirits.

Women's Bible Study - 1st and 3rd Tuesdays at 9:30am
Women's Bible Study meets at in the church lounge at 9:30 for coffee, with study beginning at 10:00.  The group is led by the pastor or another member of the group and we study topics such as the liturgical calendar and women in scripture. 

All women are welcome as we share a time of study and prayer, and we usually go out to lunch after our study.

Fellowship

Church Life
IMG_3212_zps7ef39e73.jpgOne of our most active councils is the Church Life council which is responsible for planning the various social activities for adults and families we hold throughout the year.  In the past, we have taken trips to Chicago, Ravinia and to see plays showing in the area and held a "murder mystery dinner" and cooking classes. 

We enjoy movie nights with pizza, mini golf masters, making gingerbread nativities, and our annual summer church picnic.

We also hold a yearly Easter Egg Hunt, and Trunk or Treat for Halloween, which are open to the public.
