Dear Sisters, Brothers, and Friends in Christ,

Expressing Spiritual Solidarity with our Jewish Sisters, Brothers and Friends

Our Jewish neighbors and friends STILL need our support. And there is a powerful, personal way to offer it. You can attend an upcoming weekly worship service at Temple Jeremiah or Congregation Hakafa. Both congregations are participating in a program called "Show Up for Shabbat", in which anyone who wishes to attend a Jewish worship service is warmly welcome to do so. Just imagine the message of solidarity that your personal presence would send if you were to show up for Shabbat (weekly worship) this weekend and/or next? It will not take much time. But the impact will be profound. For our friends. And for you, for us.

Congregation Hakafa service:
Friday, November 9 at 7:30 P.M.

Winnetka Community House
620 Lincoln Avenue, Winnetka, IL 60093

Temple Jeremiah services:
Friday, November 9 at 6:30 P.M. (Reception at 6:00 P.M.)
Saturday, November 10 at 8:30 A.M. and 11:00 A.M.

937 N. Happ Road, Northfield, IL 60093

Amidst life's stresses and busy-ness, let us remember worship's power to re-connect, to calm, and to encourage us? both to receive and, then, to BE God's love in this world.

God's Peace,

Jeff

 
Dear Friends,

Thanks to your ongoing support, Winnetka Congregational Church remains a vibrant and vital faith community. We are blessed. The Spirit is alive at WCC and growing. Growing deeper as we recognize God’s presence in our midst. Growing wider as we reach out to others and share our many gifts through mission and ministry. Growing Together. Growing in Gratitude.

To remain the congregation that we envision we must continue to invest in our future. We sow today what we will reap tomorrow. Annual Giving is our largest and most important source of funding. It enables us to budget, plan and support our impactful and diverse ministries. Your pledge matters greatly and we have a ways to go.
  • $ 620,000 has been pledged towards our goal of $1,000,000
  • 82 pledges have been received towards our goal of 200
  • 30% of pledges increased – 5 new pledges
We need the full participation of the Congregation to make our campaign a success. Thanks to those who have responded. Thank you for your steadfast commitment to WCC and its ministries. If you have not pledged please join your fellow members, open your hearts and do so. Faithfully consider increasing your pledge at this critical time as many in our Congregation have felt called to do.

We are strongest when we are together and hope to have all pledges received by November 15th.

Spiritual Enrichment [ONGOING]
Sndays | 8:45 A.M.
“What Am I Supposed to Do with These? The Hard-to-Believe Aspects of Christian Faith.” Angels, demons, heaven, hell, Satan, miracles, relics.

A lot of things in the Bible are, quite frankly, hard to believe: angels, demons, heaven, hell, Satan, miracles, and the Virgin Birth. Are we just supposed to accept these things on faith? Do we have to believe them to be Christian? If not, what are we supposed to do with them?  Do they offer anything of spiritual benefit?  Sunday morning Spiritual Enrichment offers a nine-part series, “What am I Supposed to Do With These? The Hard to Believe Aspects of Christian Faith,” beginning with an introduction to the topic on October 21 and ending on December 16. You do not have to come to all of them! We start with refreshments at 8:45, and end a few minutes before 10:00. The principal presenter for this series will be associate pastor Jeffrey Phillips, who will supplement each presentation with videos, conversation, and other activities to keep things lively. Newcomers welcome!

November 11 – Satan, the devil, demons
November 18 – Miracles, part 1
November 25 – Miracles, part 2
December 2 – The Second Coming
December 9 – Angels
December 16 – The Virgin Birth
WCC Rummage Volunteers Needed
Can you help with any of these needs?



1. Communications Plan Developers
Although the WCC Rummage Sale has a long history, many people may not know about it, so we would like to develop a plan to reach people who are not familiar with it.
We are looking for volunteers who can assist with:
-developing a comprehensive Communications Plan to support the operation and promotion of the WCC Rummage Sale to multiple audiences including traditional and social media
Time commitment: flexible

2.  Volunteer Database Set-up and MaintenanceThe WCC Rummage Sale has many volunteers working in various departments and capacities, and we would like to be able to communicate with them efficiently.
We are looking for volunteers who can assist with:
-setting up contact software such as Mail Chimp or other appropriate software
-moving current email information from current to new contact lists
-reviewing lists of volunteers to update their contact information
Time commitment: flexible

3.  On-Line Sales
Rummage often receives specialty items which may have significant value to a limited audience. On-line selling can extend our audience and sometimes be better for special or seasonal or bulky items.
We are looking for volunteers who can:
--pick up items
--photograph and post items for sale on sites like Virtual Garage Sale or NextDoor
--transact the sale
--arrange for pickup at their home, or at Rummage if necessary
Time commitment: flexible.
 
4.   Electronics Recyclers
Despite our attempts to be clear about what can be donated, Rummage often receives electronics that cannot be sold at the sale, and need to be recycled.
We are looking for volunteers who can:
--pick up electronic items that need to be recycled from Rummage and load them into their own vehicle
--transport them to the Winnetka Village Yard on Thursdays March 29-November 15, 1-3 pm, or to Best Buy whenever their stores are open
Time commitment: 2-10 hours per month
 
All volunteers are eligible to earn pre-shopping privileges.
If you are able to help in any of these capacities or to help with pre-sale sorting or on sale day May 9, please call the Rummage Office at 847 446-0575 or email us at wccrummage@gmail.com

Thank you!

Breaking the Cycle of Chicago’s Gun Violence

Kartemquin Films & Robert R. McCormick Foundation  
present the Chicago premiere of  
LOYALTY: STORIES 
the first documentary film series to show what life is like for Muslims in the US military 

Bringing veteran and Muslim audiences
into conversation for two screenings
Loyalty: Stories explores how American Muslims serve their country, community, and faith, while also confronting questions about patriotism, religious identity, and belonging. It shines light on the contradiction that arises when Muslims volunteer to defend a nation that does not always defend them. Through immensely personal stories, the series shows that “loyalty” cannot simply be reduced to one’s love of country but, in fact, takes many forms and is as complicated at the American Muslim experience itself. Loyalty: Stories looks beyond labels to focus on the common values that unite us all.  
 
Six new episodes from the ten-part documentary series will debut in Chicago on Thursday, November 8 and Friday, November 9, followed by digital releases on social media @LoyaltyStories and on Upworthy over Veterans Day weekend.

Flower Delivery Ministry
November 25  and March 10
After worship, each Sunday, flowers that have graced our chancel during the service are divided, arranged, and personally delivered to two members of our congregation who need a colorful and fragrant reminder that we are thinking of them. We need a few more people to carry out this simple but important ministry. Deliverers typically volunteer for two Sundays a year, and flowers are delivered year-round. The following Sundays are open in this program year: November 25, and March 10. You will be informed of the people you are to deliver to on the Thursday before the Sunday you sign up for, and other instructions will be provided. Interested? Contact Heidi Law, heidilaw@me.com, (847) 501-2514.

We Need a few new volunteers to work with Suzanne Lavin


We have a long-standing tradition at WCC of supporting Family Promise, a nonprofit organization that helps North Shore homeless families obtain stable housing. Accordingly, we host families three times per year in the fall, winter, and spring. In order to continue our long-standing support, we need a few new volunteers to work with Suzanne Lavin, the overall WCC Site coordinator.
 
Please review the volunteer job descriptions below and let Suzanne know if you can help! (Click this link to contact Suzanne).
  • Volunteer Coordinator: To host one week of Family Promise, we need approximately 40 volunteers. Each night we need a family to bring and serve dinner, a family to lead activities for the children, and two volunteers to stay overnight. The Volunteer Coordinator sends out the Sign-Up Genius and ensures all volunteer slots are filled. In addition, the Volunteer Coordinator trains any new volunteers and stops by the church a few evenings a week to make sure all is going smoothly. Yes, Suzanne, I will volunteer!
  • Food Coordinator: Each week that we host Family Promise, we offer grab-and-go food for the guests, including breakfast foods (like cereal and oatmeal) and snacks (like granola bars and fruit). The Food Coordinator shops for the grab-and-go food, and makes sure there is enough to last the week. Typically the Food Coordinator has to replenish some of the food mid-week. Yes, Suzanne, I will volunteer!
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.?

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
Dawn HuntsmanAdministrative Assistant, at (847) 441-3400

Past attendees have shared that the Exploring Grief Group has been very helpful and supportive. One grief group member shared: "Thank you for your caring, compassionate, and empathetic presence and guidance for the past few months." 

The fall session will be held at Kenilworth Union Church and will take place from September 13th - December 13th. This group will meet every other Thursday from 7:00 P.M. - 8:30 P.M.   

Meetings will be led by Joellen Hosler,

Tickets for the 2018-2019 season, including student and group rates, are available now at ChicagoChamberChoir.org.
