A French Dip

With great excitement, St. Elisabeth’s has begun to prepare for hosting a group of pilgrims from the Paroisse de la Trinité in Nantes, France.  Eleven travelers plus their priest are coming to Glencoe to learn about religion in America. They’ll be visiting the Bahai Temple, having Shabbat suppers in Jewish homes, and going out to Barrington to see Willow Creek Church, among other religious explorations. Of course they will also do touristic adventures in downtown Chicago too.  Right now we are lining up host homes for 1, 2, or 3 travelers for either October 17-22, or October 23-28.  An information session (not a commitment) about this role will be held on August 22 at 7:15 pm at the church.

We are moving Outside!

On August 26September 2, and September 9, our 10:00 AM Eucharist will be held outdoors. The vestry had several discussions around the suggestions made from the All Parish Eyes on Worship Day, and holding services outside the walls of our church has the most energy surrounding it at this time. We’ll be experimenting all three weeks with the format of the service, and are excited to worship in new spaces and creative ways!
