Announcements for Sunday, June 9, 2019

Summer Retreat: Our summer retreat will be held on June 21-23 at Judson University in Elgin. The church building will be closed on June 23, but please join us there for service if you aren’t already with us at the retreat.

Demographic Survey: The Congregational Identity Committee is gathering demographic information to get a better handle on who our members are. Please take the survey at It is mobile phone friendly, but please don't let it distract you from worshiping today! Paper copies and a computer version will be available in the lobby after the service. If you participated in the NCD survey in May, this one gathers different data and we ask that you take this one as well. Thanks for your help.

Missions Spotlight: The NSCCC Short Term Missions Team is confirmed to serve July 14-20 at a family camp for about 60 students ages 5-15. This will be our ninth year serving at this area in the Far East. Our team of ten, including Kristin Shau, Alex Dong, Michelle Chen, Sylvia Chen, Elijah Leong, Shawn Yu, and Helen Yu is preparing. Please pray for them and visit the “Sign up for STM Support” at the lobby table.

Picnic July 7: Mark your calendars for an upcoming summer fellowship event. After service on July 7, we will meet at Lincolnshire North Park to eat, enjoy the outdoors, and just get to know one another. For the youth whose parents are in the Chinese congregation, please make sure they know they are invited also! More details to come.

Summer Women’s Bible Study: Please join us for our Summer Women’s Bible Study at Mary Kay’s home on Fridays from 7:15 to 9:15pm. We will be having fellowship, prayer, and discussions on 2 Timothy about being entrusted with the Gospel and entrusting it to others. This is a 5-week series for building up our community of sisters in Christ.

Sundays at Ten: Here are the upcoming topics for our weekly, large-group discussion time:

  • Today: The Crisis at the Border
  • 6/16: Parenting Adolescents
  • 6/30: LGBTQ

Come join us for lively and biblically grounded discussion over coffee. We meet at the downstairs fellowship hall.

Gardeners wanted for the Church Landscaping Project: This past fall, incorporating input from church members and children’s ministry, a landscape plan was prepared for the circular island in front of the church parking lot.  The plan included planting new serviceberry trees, a washed gravel rain garden, spring bulbs, and children’s planting area in front.  We invite further participation from any of our church ministry programs or members interested in contributing time for planting, watering or helping maintain the garden, and be part of the Garden Team!  We aim to make it a fun way to serve the church.   Please contact Nelson Chueng for more details.
