We had a really fun week! Santa visited God's Closet (click for photos), #FTKids went to the tree lighting ceremony at Daley Library, and we had special guest chefs at God's Closet! Next week brings Beer and Carols. Join us!
A note of joyful expectation marks today’s worship. Isaiah announces that the desert shall rejoice and blossom. Jesus points to signs of God’s reign: the blind see, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear. We wait with patience for the coming of the Lord, even as we rejoice at his presence among us this day: in word and holy supper, in church and in our homes, in silent reflection and in works of justice and love. We pray that God would open our eyes and ears to the wonders of Christ’s advent among us.
Our MIC Students, Samantha and Malina, both wrote pieces for our recent newsletter about Advent. If you have not read them, or want to read them again, click here!

I wonder, what is Godly Play? Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. Come join us!
