What we’re up to –
Connection Worship Service
At 11AM every Sunday we gather to celebrate what Jesus is doing in our lives. This is a great time to explore what it means to be a Jesus follower, join in on singing songs about Jesus, learn about a passage of the Scriptures that teaches about the good news, be motivated to serve others in the community because of what Jesus has done for us, and meet new people who are also learning to follow Jesus.
(kahn-tekst groop) n. 1) Part of a network of small discussion and prayer groups that welcome guests to investigate the claims of Jesus of Nazareth and Christian spirituality, and support one another on their journey of following Jesus. 2) The centerpiece of C3’s vision to bring the message of Jesus in a word and action to the center city neighborhoods of Chicago.
Safe Haven Fellowship Meal
We host a weekly meal at 1PM on Sundays that offers a gourmet lunch to anyone who wishes to dine with us. We also have a clothing closet and groceries available for free to anyone who needs this help.
Once a quarter, we provide a meal for any of the low-income senior citizens who live in the high-rise across the street from our church. We are very thankful that we are able to serve our neighborhood this way, and build relationships with these precious people.
Vespers Prayer Meeting
The spiritual center of our community of faith. At 7PM on the second Thursday of every month we gather to practice spiritual disciplines (such as contemplative prayer, or reading a liturgy) with each other, and pray for the church and the neighborhood.
