ARE WE OPEN?

                          NO!

But we have several Online Activities

July 1, 2020

Hello, friends and members of UIF!

You can continue to worship with us Virtually on Sunday mornings at 9:30am on Facebook Live (www.facebook.com/uiflc/live). You can watch even if you don’t have a Facebook account. We are also streaming live on UIFLC’s YouTube channel on Sunday morning at 9:30am. (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC48ZorvqlmodW7DKTSofJ3A). By Sunday morning, my sermon manuscript and worship plan will be posted as Facebook notes. Videos will also be saved on Facebook and YouTube after worship. Worship plan for 7/5/2020 attached.

 

After worship, find us at a ZOOM Virtual Coffee Hour (use this link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/314512003 ).  If you would like to call in on a phone (cell or landline), you can call 312 626 6799 and type meeting ID (314 512 003) when asked. You can drop in for a few minutes or stay for an hour.  It’s so good to see each other’s faces!

 

As we watch the world around, the question has arisen, “What kind of racial justice conversations or teachings or studies would be helpful for members and friends of UIF?” In order to help us, please take this UIF-specific anonymous survey: https://assessments.gloo.us/a/RGVwbG95bWVudENvbmZpZ3wxNzE0NDc3NDM2MDMxMjA2NjI3 (or text BFPW to 90888 to start assessment). For now, it is only available via web or text.

 

The church office is open on Wednesdays from 10am-2pm in case you want to drop off or pick up anything from church. Have you run out of Fair Trade products? You can now order coffee, tea and chocolate by calling or emailing Pam (773-763-0605 pamjmar@aol.com).  You will be notified when your order is ready for pickup at church and the cost of the order (exact change or check required).
