January Shopping Cart Collection for StreetWise 
 
During the month of January will be collecting much-needed hygiene kit and other winter items to provide to StreetWise Magazine vendors and job-seekers. The mission of StreetWise is to empower those facing homelessness by providing entrepreneurial and employment opportunities so individuals can work toward self-sufficiency with dignity. The seasonal items keep the vendors warm as they sell magazines year-round to keep their small businesses going. Hygiene kits help by providing cleanliness, improved health, a sense of dignity, and greater self-esteem to someone struggling with homelessness or poverty. By collecting items for StreetWise, you make it possible to eliminate humiliation and offer hope to hundreds in our community.
 
Items we are collecting:
Hats  |  Gloves  |  Socks
 
Hygiene Items (travel or trial size)
Soap or body wash  |  Comb  |  Razor/Shaving Cream  |  Deodorant  |  Wet wipes

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
 
Chances are that you and your children have been enriched by the life and legacy of the Rev. Fred Rogers - Presbyterian minister, children’s television pioneer, and beloved host of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
 
On Wednesday, January 8, 6:30 P.M., join us in the Centennial Room to view and discuss Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor. The film tells the story of Rogers and his cast of puppets and friends who spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues in a simple, direct fashion. There hadn’t been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before, and there hasn’t been since.
 
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is the documentary that was in theaters in 2018, and then on TV. It is NOT the 2019 Tom Hanks film in theaters more recently.
 
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is the first movie in our winter-spring series, “Five Films, One Focus: What Connects Us?”, documentaries that explore living in relationship and solidarity with neighbors, society, and the planet itself. All films are free of charge. Invite friends and neighbors.  The evening ends by 9:00 p.m. Questions: Pastor Jeffrey Phillips, (847) 999-9403 or jeffrey.phillips@wcc-joinus.org.

The Environment:  Can Religious Communities Make a Difference?
YES!!
 
On Wednesday, January 29, 6:30 P.M., join us in the Centennial Room to view and discuss Renewal, a feature-length documentary that captures the vitality of eight spiritual communities that are putting their faith into action to heal the environment.  The film tells the stories of Protestant, Catholic, Muslim, Buddhist, and Jewish congregations and organizations that are taking seriously God’s command to care for the planet.  The stories include combating global warming, industrial contamination, and mountaintop removal, promoting food security and sustainable farming, and teaching love and respect for life on earth.

Wednesday, February 12, On the Brink. Seattle’s once-thriving Central District, the largest enclave of African Americans in the Pacific Northwest, is threatened by gentrification. A story of holding on to community in the face of change.
Wednesday, March 11, The Sultan and the Saint. During the Crusades, two men of faith, Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt, buck a century of war, distrust, and insidious propaganda in search of peace. The film inspires solutions for the negative atmosphere we find ourselves in today.
Thursday, April 16, GameChangers. Sports, race, and culture come together in this story of the 1965 and ’66 basketball games between New Trier and Marshall high schools as they battle for the chance to compete in the state finals. Fifty years later, rival players come together to shed new light on old memories.
“Five Films, One Focus: What Connects Us?” - documentaries that explore living in relationship and solidarity with neighbors, society, and the planet itself.
All films are free of charge. Invite friends and neighbors.

Immigration: Theological and Ethical Considerations
January 5, 12, and 19

 
“Immigration” has been in the news – a lot!  What do we mean by the word?  How is it different from “migrant” and “refugee”?  What light can faith shine on these matters?  On the first three Sunday mornings of the new year, Spiritual Enrichment offers a series on the theological and ethical dimensions of immigration.  
  • January 5.  RefugeeOne will introduce the topic.  RefugeeOne creates opportunities for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution as they build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance.  It is one of the agencies that benefits from our Rummage proceeds. 
  • January 12.  We will broaden our perspective on immigration by digging deeper into the biblical and theological foundations of a sound ethical approach to the issue. 
  • January 19.  A panel will tell their personal stories of immigration to America, and the role that faith has played in their experience.  At least two panelists will be WCC folks! 
Spiritual Enrichment Sunday sessions happen in the Centennial Room, with refreshments at 8:30 A.M. and program at 8:45. We conclude at 9:45. If you need childcare during that time, call or text Shelli Brown at (312) 543-2357 no later than 5:00 P.M. on the Friday before. If you would like to receive regular email updates about Spiritual Enrichment activities, let Pastor Jeffrey know: (847) 999-9403 or jeffrey.phillips@wcc-joinus.org.
  • Environmental and Forestry Commission’s Stormwater Best Management Practices Guide for Residents
  • Winnetka Village composting options as follows:
    In April 2019, the Winnetka Village Council tasked staff with exploring options for implementing a Village-wide composting program for residents. Three preferred vendors were selected. Each vendor has their own pricing structure and service levels, as well as porch/backdoor pick-up services. Vendors also provide their own five-gallon buckets and lids to residents. For additional information on the three preferred providers, please visit the Village’s website
  • Use our New Zero Waste Event Guide to Help You Simplify During the Holidays

    Use the ZWE Guide below to inform your purchasing and waste diversion and collection efforts at events at your home, school, faith house, office, and more! 

Sign Up For Residential Composting to Further Simplify During the Holidays and Beyond!
 
Sign up for home/business collection - or create a Zero Waste Event at your home, school, faith house, office, etc. - and send your food scraps and other compostable items, including 100% paper products, to a commercial composting site with one of Winnetka’s new Preferred Compost Providers!

If you live in a community that offers a seasonal ride-along food scrap collection program, Evanston-based Collective Resource can pick up your food scraps when the ride-along program is on hiatus during the winter months. Other bucket service providers may also offer similar services. Contact Collective Resource directly for more information. 

Worth a Reminder

Shedd the Straw 

Go Green Winnetka is participating in the Shedd Aquarium's "Shedd the Straw" campaign to reduce Chicagoland's use of plastic straws and other single-use items that harm marine life and contribute to pollution and landfill waste. You can help by not purchasing straws for home use and by telling your server that you do not want a straw whenever you order a drink. Ask your favorite restaurant to join Shedd Aquarium's "Shedd the Straw" campaign and offer biodegradable straws on request only. Click here to learn more.
Did you know that the WCC Rummage Sale donates to a number of nonprofits agencies? WCC Rummage/Benevolence has created a profile of the month for 12 of the agencies receiving grants. We want to share with everyone how Rummage turns donor’s gifts into support for so many agencies.
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. 
 
The Salvation Army evaluates every local community and strives to meet the greatest need in each. Their goal is to turn underserved areas into thriving, flourishing communities. 
 
Overcome Poverty: 46.7 million Americans live below the poverty line. 60 million more live one crisis away. The Salvation Army is active in every zip code in America to feed, shelter, assist and lift up the poor. Poverty is so often the result of - and the catalyst for - chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, educational voids and various forms of abuse. These interconnected struggles continue year after year, and often span generations. That's why The Salvation Army works to meet the needs of the whole person through short and long-term assistance - first alleviating the symptoms of poverty and then addressing the root issues that cause it. 
 
Provide Housing: Nearly 1 of every 20 Chicagoans is homeless. This means families are sleeping on the streets, in cars or moving from family home to family home. The Salvation Army provides shelter for nearly 700 men, women, and children every year, and works to keep thousands of families from becoming homeless. Their homeless diversion programs and shelters provide safe housing, food, and spiritual and practical support to families who have nowhere else to go. 
 
Cure Hunger: 59% of people seeking food assistance choose between paying for food and paying rent or mortgage. The Salvation Army provides an average of 156,000 meals every single day across the U.S.  Every day they're providing meals to children in Head Start programs, families in shelters, people living on the streets, and struggling neighbors who are unsure of where their next meal will come from. In addition to addressing the immediate symptoms of food insecurity, their programs are designed to help identify and treat its root cause. 
 
Combat Addiction: The Salvation Army has more no-fee residential treatment facilities than any rehab program in America. The Salvation Army provides treatment and rehabilitation for men and women battling substance abuse. These programs restore an individual's confidence and self-esteem through work, therapy, counseling, recreation and training. Once clients complete treatment, they are often reunited with their families and return to their communities as contributing members of society. 
 
Help Disaster Survivors:
Natural disasters in the U.S. cause an average of $15 billion in damages each year. Drought, wildfires, flash-flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and blizzards create a sense of helplessness, fear, and uncertainty. The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) of Greater Chicagoland responds to disasters with support and love to survivors and first responders, including food, shelter, spiritual support and long-term recovery. The Salvation Army is usually the first organization on the scene, and often the last to leave. Disaster relief and recovery services are provided to all in need without discrimination. 
 
Fight for Justice: Between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked in the U.S. each year. This form of modern-day enslavement exists all over the U.S. but Cook County (Illinois) law enforcement arrests more sex traffickers than anywhere else in the country. Young women ages 15-24 are the most targeted. The Salvation Army fights for human and social justice. They fight for people who are being trafficked, giving them support and resources to leave the situation. hey help inmates re-enter
society as productive members of their communities. 
 
The WCC Woman’s Society Benevolence Committee has been supporting The Salvation Army Metropolitan Division for over 33 years.

Planned Giving TAX Information
 
Planned Giving Tax Information: We wish to remind everyone over the age of 70 ½ who owns an IRA that you can make tax-free transfers of up to $100,000 to one or more charities in any given year. This amount also counts toward your required minimum distribution and can be a very tax-effective method of satisfying one’s charitable intentions. Please remember that to do this one must authorize the IRA administrator to make the distribution, i.e. the distribution must come directly from the IRA to the charity. Also, while the best time for setting up and funding a donor advised fund (DAF) for most folks would have been before the end of 2017, it still provides an opportunity to immediately recognize the aggregate tax benefits of present and future charitable giving. Setting up a DAF is a relatively easy and straightforward process, it gives you the ability to get the same sort of tax benefit realized from bunching deductions without disrupting your normal charitable giving pattern. The Planned Giving Gift Letter is available on the wcc-joinus.org website under the Giving tab. Please contact Clyde McGregor or Paul Van Zuiden if you have questions.

Inclusion Statement

As “A House of Worship For All People” Winnetka Congregational Church acknowledges, supports, and welcomes all God’s children whatever their age, culture, race, creed, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic or marital status, education, nationality, or cultural background, physical or cognitive ability.

Looking For Opportunities in Worship?
We would love to have you!​
Scripture Readers
Call to Discipleship Leaders
Ushers and Greeters

Sunday mornings at 10 A.M.

Acolytes - An opportunity for your child to get through a service of worship in a different way. 

Each Sunday, two of our 5th-8th graders serve as acolytes during our morning worship service. Acolytes bring the light of Christ into the sanctuary at the beginning of worship, reminding people that Christ (the light of the world) is in our midst. At the end of the service, acolytes retrieve the light and take it out of the sanctuary, reminding us that God goes before us into the world.

Those of us on staff have heard so many positive comments from people about how meaningful they find the entrance and exit of the light each Sunday and how appreciative they are to have youth as leaders in worship! 

Opportunity 1: ACOLYTE (5th - 8th Graders) | SIGN UP HERE!

Scripture Lay Reader read one of the Scripture passages during morning worship. A copy of the reading will be emailed to you on Thursday and a copy will be on the lectern on Sunday mornings.

Opportunity 2: LAY READER (Adults, Youth) | SIGN UP HERE!

The Call to Discipleship Leader leads the congregation through responsive prayer. We would love having youth lead us in the Call to Discipleship each week but we don't limit this function to the youth only. Anybody can volunteer.
Opportunity 3: CALL TO DISCIPLESHIP LEADER (Youth) | SIGN UP HERE!

Greeters provide a friendly, helpful beginning to the worshiper’s experience. Greeters welcome people as they enter the building and are there to answer questions and provide directions. As Greeters, you are the first faces and impressions that visitors have when entering WCC.

Ushers are present to foster an atmosphere of friendship and provide structure to the service by welcoming and (if requested) seating members and guests. For some worshipers, an usher is the first person they meet as they enter the Church. All worshipers should feel that we are pleased to see them. Ushers greet everyone and welcome them, providing them with a program/bulletin and any other materials. Ushers also pass offering plates during the service.

Opportunity 4: GREETER / USHER | SIGN UP HERE!

If you have any questions or need help with signing up contact
