SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11th

 Join the Eden UCC community for some or all of this festive day! Worship @ 10am features an intergenerational celebration/dedication of our children and youth (including “blessing the backpacks”), grandparents and all our leaders. We’ll gather mindful that it is 9/11, and prayerfully acknowledge our role as a faith community in making a stronger neighborhood and nation.

Join us after worship for a COOK-OUT AND OPEN HOUSE beginning at approximately 11:30am. Fun activities include soccer and fencing demos from our building partners, plus the ever-popular Dunk Tank and Bounce House. Rep. Martwick’s office will be present with Sno-Cones. Our neighbors from Block Club and Jefferson Park Forward will be present, as well as Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts. Check out our newest space sharers – the Girl Scouts and “Music Alive” classes for children. Learn about our Crop HUNGER Walk Team and how to join us on 9/25/16 for this annual fundraiser. Building tours include sanctuary, gym and meeting rooms available for the community.


Looking for the right match for your children and youth for Sunday School or Confirmation? Learn more this Sunday and register your children for a great year of faith, fun and friends at Eden UCC. For more information, contact hope@edenuccchicago.org.

Holy Week Observed at Eden UCC

Mar 11, 2015 by

We journey with Jesus and one another…

 Thanks to all who blessed our Holy Week through music, worship decoration, food, Word and an overnight vigil for “Watch of the Cross.”  Truly, Christ has died, Christ had risen, Christ is coming again!

Join us for Eastertide as we journey on in Resurrection  Peace.  Steve and Jacki will bring sermons and encouragements as we abide in peace AND move “forward in faith.”  Note that we’re planning a special Anniversary Week observance of our 101st birthday.

We’re  looking forward to a special celebration of music on May 17th at 10am, as we rededicate our organ and music ministry.  The following Sunday is Pentecost Sunday (May 24th), and we’ll be celebrating Confirmation Sunday, new adult members’ joining and a renewal of our baptismal vows.

Together, we’re making Christ’s peace REAL!
