Senior Pastor Josh Moody will be preaching on Esther 1:2:1-23  "Winning Favor" in the series, Living In Exile.

In the Sanctuary at 8, 9:30, and 11:15.

Registration required for 9:30 and 11:15 services and opens at noon on Tuesday. CLICK HERE to register.

Guidelines for in-person worship

Masks are required for everyone over the age of two, unless there is a medical reason not to. Your mask should cover your mouth and nose; it should remain in place throughout the service until you are back outside and away from others. At the 11:15 service, worshippers may remove their masks once seated, provided they put them on while singing.

You are welcome to sit in a pew marked for the time of your service. You will see dots on the pew back. These dots are two feet apart, so three dots equal six feet. Make every effort to see four dots between you and other groups worshiping near you to assure safe distancing.

Kids' Harbor

This Sunday Kids' Harbor is offering nursery - 5th grade at the 9:30 service.

CLICK HERE to reserve your spots at 9:30—capacity is limited.

As we move into winter, here are some resources to refresh you while at home or when you meet with smaller gatherings.


Peaceful Praying Outside Planned Parenthood:  Planned Parenthood in Aurora is the largest abortion facility in the Midwest where about 300-400 babies lose their lives each month. Waterleaf, a pregnancy resource center, is across the street.  Abortion industry workers report that when women see peaceful prayer outside an abortion facility, abortion appointment cancellations go up significantly. We will pray outside Planned Parenthood on Waterleaf's property for an hour monthly in cooperation with 40 Days for Life. There will be plenty of space for social distancing. Sarah Lindquist will guide this time of singing a few hymns and prayer for the babies, clients, workers, our community, and nation.

When: Saturday, February 6 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Where: Planned Parenthood, 3051 E New York St, Aurora, IL 60504

Parking: Please park in the AutoZone or Mariano’s parking lot.
