Ashes on the Way:
Offering a Sense of Connection on the First Day of Lent
Ash Wednesday
February 26, 2020 | 6:00 - 10:00 A.M.
WCC Church Parking Lot

For those unable to attend an Ash Wednesday Service, Winnetka Congregational Church (WCC) offers an innovative yet mindful opportunity for them to receive Ashes on the Way.  
From 6:00 A.M. until 10:00 A.M. on February 26, 2020, we invite you to drive into the WCC parking lot, enter the roundabout in front of the church, and stop curbside. One of our pastors will come to your car to offer the imposition of ashes and a blessing. If you have a particular joy or concern on your heart, please feel free to share that with the pastor. If you do not wish to receive ashes, you may simply ask for a blessing. Wherever you are in your faith journey, we welcome you to begin the season of Lent with us on February 26.
“At first glance, some might feel that Ashes on the Way is a dumbing down of the sacred, or a bump-and-run approach to a faithful experience, says WCC Senior Pastor the Rev. Jeff Braun. “We have found the exact opposite to be true. Each interaction is an immersive, intimate, and authentic experience. We want and encourage people to attend Ash Wednesday services. Yet, we recognize that sometimes family and work obligations won’t allow that to happen. If people yearn for the sense of connection and reverence that Ash Wednesday can imbue, then it is important that faith and the rituals of faith find us where we are.” 
In addition to our church members, WCC will be available to all who seek a Spirit-filled experience on Ash Wednesday. We encourage you to tell your friends of other denominations, or those with no church affiliation, that Winnetka Congregational Church welcomes them to begin their Lenten season with us on the morning of February 26 and, of course, at our evening worship service in the sanctuary at 7 P.M.
This year marks the fourth year WCC will offer Ashes on the Way, an event that is truly a Godsend for many of our members, as well as folks from throughout the community. For WCC Membership Co-Chairs Kelly Anderson and Brad McLane, Ashes on the Way has become a family tradition: 
"It is surprisingly meaningful to receive this blessing. I went in the morning last year, with a high schooler in tow, and it was a serene way for us to start the day." -- Brad McClane
 “Ashes on the Way allows me to make my faith a priority, even with two young kids and a busy schedule. It’s a ritual we do as a family. I look forward to this day every year and encourage other busy parents to experience this blessing.” -- Kelly Anderson
Dear Friends,
We are truly grateful to those who have opened their hearts and minds and generously offered their pledges to our Annual Stewardship Campaign. Thanks to your generosity we are nearing our goal. To have a successful campaign however, we need broad(er) participation. Your pledge makes a difference and it is not too late to participate. 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. If you have not pledged, please support those members who have given so generously. Pledge Cards are available in the Narthex or online.
  • $895,000 has been pledged towards our goal of $1,000,000
  • 150  pledges have been received towards our goal of 200

Labyrinths to Enrich Lenten Journey
Two labyrinths - one large and one small - are being placed on the floor of Alsdorf Activities Center to assist our spiritual growth during Lent.  They will be available for use Sunday, March 17, through Sunday, April 28.
In the medieval era, Christians who could not undertake a pilgrimage to the Holy Land might visit a cathedral, such as the one in Chartres, France where they would find embedded in the floor an intricate series of circular paths which they could use to symbolically walk to Jerusalem and back.  This was the labyrinth.
Today, spiritual pilgrims use labyrinths for the same purpose: to walk prayerfully and intentionally in order to connect with God and deeper things.  Labyrinths come in many sizes and shapes, and can be made of different materials.  Some are indoors and others are outdoors.  Walking the labyrinth, we take time away from our busy lives to experience an inner peace that runs through our bodies but goes beyond our intellects.  Different from a maze, which contains false pathways and dead ends, a labyrinth has a single path that leads to its center, reminding us that if we stay on the spiritual path, every step, no matter how circuitous, leads toward the heart of all things.  The labyrinth is walked in silence.  Thinking is not required to walk the labyrinth.  It is more important to possess a seeking heart that is open to receive the things of God: peace, healing, and divine presence.               
WCC’s labyrinths are ideal for individuals, families, and supervised children.  Printed information, including “labyrinth etiquette,” will be available as you enter Alsdorf.  If you prefer to “walk” the labyrinth with your fingers, lap labyrinths and chairs will be available for you to sit and trace the pattern of the actual labyrinths on the floor.  It will probably take you 10-20 minutes to walk the large labyrinth, and 5-10 minutes to walk the smaller one.  You may walk both!  However you walk the labyrinth, may it bring you peace, reminding you of the sacred journeys of spiritual pilgrims then and now (including Jesus’ final journey to Jerusalem).       
The labyrinths will be available anytime the church is open (Monday-Wednesday 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m., Thursday 8:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m., Friday 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Saturday, 1:00-4:00 p.m., and Sunday 7:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. and 4:00-8:00 p.m.).  Questions?  Contact Pastor Jeffrey Phillips, (847) 999-9403,
Many thanks to JS Hedegard for assisting Pastors Jeffrey and Sarah in constructing the labyrinths.

Backs Against the Wall: The Howard Thurman Story
February 16 and 23

Born the grandson of slaves, Howard Thurman became the spiritual wellspring of the civil rights movement, mentoring many of its leaders, including Martin Luther King, Jr., Jesse Jackson, and U.S. Representative John Lewis.  Thurman’s 1949 book Jesus and the Disinherited is considered a spiritual classic. After learning from Gandhi and the Quakers about the importance of non-violence in movements for social change, Thurman introduced the concept to King.  In turn, King always carried with him a copy of Jesus and the Disinherited.  
A profoundly important African American Christian theologian and mystic of the 20th century, Thurman is also remembered for his years of teaching at Howard University and Boston University School of Theology, and for helping to launch The Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples in San Francisco, the nation’s first interracial, intercultural church. 
On two Sunday mornings in February, the 16th and 23rd, WCC’s Spiritual Enrichment ministry will view and discuss Martin Doblmeier’s 2019 documentary, Backs Against the Wall: The Howard Thurman Story.

Caring for People with Memory Loss
January 22 Video Now Available

Care and Calling sponsored an awesome continuing education event on caring for people with memory loss on January 22, facilitated by Jaclyn Abramson and Deena Karno from Weinberg Community for Senior Living in Deerfield.

Lent is a time to deepen our faith and grow with others on the spiritual path.  Join us in our all-church book read this Lent – Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others by Barbara Brown Taylor.

Brown, renowned Christian preacher and author of the best-selling spiritual reflections An Altar in the World and Learning to Walk in the Dark, recounts her moving discoveries of finding the sacred in unexpected places while teaching world religions to undergraduates in Baptist-saturated rural Georgia.

The title comes from the late Swedish Lutheran Bishop and professor at Harvard Divinity School Krister Stendahl, who advised: “When trying to understand another religion, you should ask the adherents of that religion and not its enemies.  Don’t compare your best to their worst.  Leave room for holy envy.”
We will discuss the book on the four Wednesdays in March (4, 11, 18, and 25) from 1:00-2:15 p.m. in the Centennial Room.  Participate as your schedule allows; you do not have to be present each week.  If you can’t attend the discussions, read the book on your own!  On March 4, we will discuss the introduction and first three chapters (through page 60), using this guide:

Obtain your copy as you wish. Copies are available at The Book Stall in downtown Winnetka.    

Questions, contact Pastor Jeffrey Phillips:, (847) 999-9403.
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.
Since 1985, Deborah’s Place has provided compassionate care to women experiencing homelessness in Chicago. Deborah’s Place was founded by a group of women who believed they could make a difference for women who are homeless. From humble beginnings as a volunteer-run program in a church gym, Deborah’s Place grew first to transitional housing and then to permanent supportive housing. Over time, we developed wrap-around services to complement our housing programs – job readiness training, tutoring and education assistance, health services, case management, counseling and numerous social and life skills activities.  After more than 30 years, Deborah’s Place has helped over 4,000 women move from homeless to housed,from surviving to living. 

Housing Services 

Permanent Housing Programs 
Deborah’s Place offers permanent supportive housing for women in three locations. Participants have private residences, sign leases and pay rent based on income, although rent can be waived in cases where a resident has no income. Unlike shelters, there is no time limit for length of residency in these programs as long as a participant still qualifies for services. Locations: East Garfield Park and Old Town. Staffed 24hrs/7 days week. 

Safe Haven Housing 
Dolores’s Safe Haven in Old Town provides a safe and supportive environment for fifteen women with severe mental illness who have been chronically homeless. These women are considered the hardest to house. Staff reach out and engage women to offer services that result in stable housing and increased quality of life. 

Community Based Housing Programs 
Not all women at Deborah’s Place live in one of the three program sites; many live in their own independent apartments in the community. Deborah’s Place partners with private landlords across the city to provide housing to women coming directly from the street or shelter. We then provide ongoing case management to help them set and achieve their own self-determined goals. 

Support Services 

All Deborah’s Place participants have access to support services designed to meet the diverse needs of women who have experienced homelessness. These services offer different pathways to stability, independence and opportunities for a better quality of life.

Comprehensive Case Management: Case managers assist women in meeting their goals. 
Health Services: Crisis management, health education and referrals, medical/dental assistance.
Employment and Education Services: GED tutoring, computer training, budgeting and life skills.
Therapeutic Services: Counseling, crisis intervention, and art therapy.
Alumnae Services:  On-going assistance in case management, peer support, group gatherings. 
The WCC Women’s Society Benevolence Committee has been supporting Deborah’s Place for 20 yrs.

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.

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!
