Lisle Special Class – “Living the Gospel in Contemporary Society”
The U.S. church remains fiercely divided over its role in response to social ills. Some argue the church holds a unique responsibility to fight for social justice as part of its gospel witness. Others wonder if this emphasis on social justice distracts attention away from the gospel and/or leads to Cultural Marxism. Recognizing the importance of this debate, we’ve designed a four-week study to consider 1) what God’s word says about justice and 2) how a theology of justice informs our engagement with politics, immigration, and poverty. 

We are excited to have Dr. Theon Hill teach this  4-part class titled “Living the Gospel in Contemporary Society”. The class will be held in Lisle immediately after service from 11am12pm on Sundays 11/10, 11/24, 12/8, and 12/15.  Please sign up at the Welcoming Table to help us plan.  (Note: We are also planning to offer this class at the City service in the Spring).

Lisle Bags of Love Packing Event
The Lisle Women’s Ministry will be hosting a packing party on Sunday 11/17 after service in Lisle. Please join us in the lobby to help pack “Bags of Love” and write encouraging notes. These Bags of Love are intended to be given away to those in need and will be available for sale with a suggested $5-$10 donation the following Sundays. All proceeds will go to benefit Reclaim 13, a non-profit that combats sex trafficking.

Joint Christmas Service 12/22
Please mark your calendars for our next joint service on Sunday 12/22. The Joint service will take place at Merit in the City starting at 10:30am. Please join us as we have a great time of worshiping together as one church family. (Please note we will not be having a joint Thanksgiving service on 11/24).
