Mission Continues to support the 2021 South Suburban CROP Hunger Virtual Walk
In 2021, we will continue to fight against the challenges of disease, disaster, displacement and other concerns that leave people hungry.
Join with us as we raise funds to help neighbors near and far get the meals they need for today and sustainable food security for tomorrow!
So far we have raised $6966.7 in online donations and $910 in Facebook donations or reported cash and checks!
United Methodism is a connectional system. We are related to other United Methodist Churches through the Chicago-Southern District, Northern Illinois Conference, North Central Jurisdictional Conference and the General Conference.

Thursday's Thought for Sunday's Service
“This is why I kneel before the Father. Every ethnic group in heaven or on earth is recognized by him. I ask that he will strengthen you in your inner selves from the riches of his glory through the Spirit. I ask that Christ will live in your hearts through faith. As a result of having strong roots in love, I ask that you’ll have the power to grasp love’s width and length, height and depth, together with all believers. I ask that you’ll know the love of Christ that is beyond knowledge so that you will be filled entirely with the fullness of God. Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us; glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus for all generations, forever and always. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:14–21, CEB)
Who we are in the eyes of others is important, but who are we on the inside?
Responding to God’s grace suggests more subtle understandings of religious practice, and helps to define, deepen our inner being. This often takes place out of public view. It aids in stimulating, bolstering the continuing presence of Christ who “will live in your hearts through faith.” Rushing to establish a reputation before establishing a center where God dwells, is foolishness.
