In it Together: Discovering the Art of Blessing One Another in Friendship and Community
Join us for a conversation on how to strengthen and deepen our friendships and relationships. In the fragment, frenzied world we share, a meaningful connection can be rare and the gift of presence feels elusive. Discover how to strengthen our connections with God and one another as we discuss what it truly means to be blessed and practice the art of blessing one another.

Join us again this year as we march in the Elmhurst Memorial Day Parade. The parade will step off at 9:30 on Monday, May 27. We’ll need lots of marchers to help us pick up recyclables from parade goers, pass out milk weed seeds, share with families news of our upcoming De Colores Program and escort our Clutterbug down the street. It’s a great way to start the holiday. We will be gathering near York and Third Streets at 9:00 a.m.
