St. Elisabeth’s will be co-hosting Family Promise with St. Augustine’s Church in Wilmette from Sunday to Sunday, and the online sign up is available Click Here. As usual, we will need volunteers to prepare and serve dinners, to spend time with the children between dinner and bedtime, and to stay overnight. Our church’s involvement in this program that helps families transition from instability to stability is one of St. Elisabeth’s major and long-standing outreach commitments.
Cliff Schwandner and Daphne Cody invite you on a pilgrimage to Montgomery, Alabama where we would visit the newly installed National Memorial for Peace & Justice. A commemoration of African American victims of lynching from 1877-1950. On our journey, we would also worship at The 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham — just a few miles up the road from Montgomery. We’re looking at two possible weekends, either the last weekend in March or the first weekend in April. We will have a brief presentation after the 10:00 am Sunday, January 6 to explain the program. It promises to be a moving and meaningful event where we’ll experience reflection, reconciliation, remembrance, fellowship and worship – together. If you would like more information about this event, please contact the church office.
