"Faith That Feeds"
We believe that faith should feed and nurture our spirits.
We believe also that faith should lead us to feed people
in the many different ways they hunger,
both physically and spiritually.

Hybrid Sunday Worship

The Seventh Sunday After Pentecost

July 7, 2024

Jesus does great deeds of power and gives his disciples authority over demons. Yet none of this power is unilateral; it all must be received by faith. Jesus asks his disciples to go out without money or supplies, so that they will be dependent on how others receive them. When we are sent from the assembly to witness and to heal, we are asked to be vulnerable, to be dependent on the reception of others. The Spirit always operates in the “between”: between Jesus and his Abba, between Jesus and us, between you and me, between us and those to whom we are sent.

Interfaith Field Trip

Muslim Community Center of Chicago

Our Confirmation group has a bonus inter-faith field trip coming up at the end of July since there was a lot of interest in attending a mosque and learning more about our Muslim siblings. This field-trip is planned for Friday, July 26th, 6:30PM at the Morton Grove location of the Muslim Community Center of Chicago. The address is as follows: 8601 Menard Ave, Morton Grove, IL 60053

Other members from the church are invited to attend as well if you let Pastor Mark know in advance (pastor@immanuelevanston.org) so that he can pass on any additional information. Expect to wear long pants and possibly long sleeves as well, but head coverings may or may not be advised depending on their request.

Val Gilmer, Music Director of The Baha'i House of Worship Coffee Hour Presentation

Last Sunday’s (June 30th) coffee hour was quite successful. Though I’m uncertain of the exact number of attendees, I would guess that we had around 30-35 people present. Van Gilmer sang two songs that were quite touching. The first one told the story of pain in life, and freedom in death, and the second was a story of global healing and unity. Van’s journey of working in the Navy as an engineer and moving to Evanston to take on a new position later in life, as the Musical Director at the Baha’i House of Worship, was sandwiched between his beautiful music. He played both the guitar and the piano.

It was wonderful having him speak and interact with our church family after the event. Van currently resides in Wilmette, and is still actively engaged in both Civil Rights and Racial Justice movements on the North Shore. He is on the Human Rights Commission, and he conducts a weekly racial gathering called Intimate Dialogue, which fosters respectful conversations on race, among a host of other groups. Though his work is impressive, he is best known for being one of the original college students that sat at Woolworth’s lunch counters in support of racial justice, in Greensboro, NC.
