Parents Night Out Nov 9

Click the picture to register for a free night out, while your kids are having oodles of fun with noodles!

Starting Line Class

The Bible tells us in Deuteronomy 6, that parents are the primary spiritual influence of their kids as they go about life.  We, as a church count it a privilege to get to support you in that adventure and partner in any way we can.
As we focus on what it means to be a disciple or follower of Jesus this year with kids on Sundays, we would like to offer a special class for kids Grades 1-5 (if you feel your kindergartner is ready they are also welcome) and their parents called Starting Line. 
The Starting line refers to the starting line of our faith or a personal relationship with Jesus.  Together, along side other families you will be a part of an interactive time with child as the class leader leads the group through what it means to be a follower of Jesus.  You will also have the opportunity to lead your child through a prayer of faith if they are ready.

What will the night look like?

6:00pm Dinner – Bring the whole family
6:30pm Games -involving a starting line
7:00-8:30 – The Starting Line Class for Grades 1-5 (childcare/fun for the younger kids).

Is there a cost?

$15/family for those interested in the class (includes dinner, material, childcare for younger kids)

If our kids are young, can we still come?

Yes!  Come and enjoy dinner and games from 6-7pm

Men’s Connection July 28th

Every Servant a Leader

Every man is called to be a kingdom leader … to use his influence for good and the Gospel.  In the kingdom of God, just as every man is a leader … so every leader is a servant. Come … find out what that means for you … discuss and explore this with other men … and pray with each other.  As always, there will be a light breakfast served.

Student Pie Night & Hymn Sing

Something new this year!  Instead of the familiar Spaghetti Dinner where we voted on sauces, students shared about their summer trips, and we sang favorite hymns, we have



August 12 at 5:30pm


Students will still share about trips, we will still sing your favorite hymns but we will eat pies – Savory pies like chicken pot pie, shepherd’s pie, pizza pie, quiche, etc. and Sweet pies like apple, pumpkin, cherry, peach, pecan, chocolate, banana cream, etc.


If you would like to bring a pie – either homemade or purchased, sign up at the table by the well or contact
Paul Bialek at or 847-945-9268.


You also have an opportunity to vote with money for who gets a whipped cream pie in the face so bring your money too! 
All money given will go towards future student trips.



Youth Sunday June 10th

What’s happening this Sunday?
This Sunday, June 10th, will be “Youth Sunday.” Students played a significant role in planning this week’s service. You will see:
– Students leading worship
– Students helping with tech
– Students reading scripture
– Students serving as ushers
– A recognition of graduates
Why are students so involved in this week’s service?
Our students are playing a front-and-center role this week as we prepare to send them off on several summer trips. The High School students are going on their Challenge and Light Rider trips; the Junior High students are going to the Twin Cities on their BUMP trip.
This is the final leg of their fundraising journey to make those trips a reality. In order to help their trips get fully funded, this final fundraising opportunity will include:
– A freewill offering during this Sunday’s service
– YOUTHWORKS, in which students sign up to take on jobs for members of the congregation in exchange for donations to summer trips
How can I help?
Thank you for your contributions to the 2018 student trips up to this point; the pancake breakfast and women’s event blessed our students mightily! We are already $5000 toward our $7000 fundraising goal. Since this is our last fundraising event before the 2018 trips, we are looking to raise $2000 this Sunday. There are two ways you can help us make the push for the final $2000 this Sunday:
– Bring money or a check to contribute to Sunday’s freewill offering. That freewill offering will go to the scholarship fund, which benefits scholarship needs in the church (including student trips).
– See a student in the foyer after the service to see what help they are offering through YOUTHWORKS. Consider signing up to have a high school student mow your lawn, clean your gutters, teach your kid guitar, etc.
Thank you!
Thank you for your love and support for our students, who pour out so much to bless the rest of us in the congregation. Let’s make the most of this opportunity to bless them back.

Men’s Connection

Beginning on Saturday, June 23rd, Pastor Craig with Neal Siegel will be leading a ministry for men from 7:30 to 9:00 am. Men of all ages from North Sub, Adat Hatikvah, friends, and neighbors are welcome.

As men, we tend to find ourselves alone. We weren’t meant to be alone. We were meant to be in community with others… especially other men. As men, we need the strength, support, encouragement, and prodding of other men so that we can live our lives fully in the Lord. The vision of the MEN’S CONNECTION is that NO MAN STANDS ALONE. Our mission is DISCIPLING, MENTORING, and SERVING.

The Men’s Connection will meet in the Club 45 Room downstairs on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. A light breakfast and coffee will be served. Each meeting will feature a brief devotional time followed by a time of connecting in the Word, discussion, and prayer together.

This Saturday devotional and discussion time begins with the first of a 5-part series entitled, “Leading Well.” As men, we’ll look together at what it means to be called by God to be kingdom leaders.

If you have questions, please call the office, contact Pastor Craig (North Sub) and/or Neal Siegel (Adat).


If you or someone you know is experiencing separation or divorce, DivorceCare is a support group that can help. You do not have to go through this alone. This is a place where you can hear valuable information from a non-denominational Christian perspective about ways to heal from the hurt of divorce.  The 13 week session began on June 5 and will meet every Tues from 6:30-8:30pm in the Hospitality Room. There is a one time fee of $25 to purchase materials.  For more information or to register, contact Karen at or 847-580-5757.

First Wednesdays

Joint Prayer Service with Adat Hatikvah


On that last night of his earthly life to the Father, Jesus offered up to God his high priestly prayer. In it he prayed, 20 “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, SO THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE SENT ME. John 17:20-21   


Since partnering together, Rabbi Jake and Pastor Craig have noticed how true this actually is.  They have continued to ask the Lord to show us ways to increase partnering with each others so that the world may believe in Jesus, the Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach. Once per month on the FIRST WEDNESDAY, from 7PM to 8 PM, we will gather together as congregations to mutually submit ourselves before the Lord, to offer up our hearts to the Lord praying for our congregations… for the local community at-large… and for individual requests.  They believe that as a result, God’s Spirit will be present in a unique way that will grow in us and through us, generating unity and a greater effectiveness in our witness.  Come join in the adventure and see what God does with us, together.
