WORSHIP

 

Worship begins at 9:00am on Sunday mornings.

 

While we have returned to in-person worship, a livestream option is still available at  www.facebook.com/streamwoodiucc

Videos remain on our page afterwards to watch at your convenience as well.

You DO NOT need a Facebook account to access livestream or recorded worship.

 

Here at IUCC, we offer a traditional, yet casual mixture of scripture, preaching, music, and prayer, as well as an interactive time for all ages called Engaging the Word. We provide bulletins for each week's order of service, and also project this information onto large screens at the front of the sanctuary.

 

Communion is offered on the first Sunday of the month. We celebrate an open table, where all are welcome to take communion. Bread and gluten-free crackers, as well as wine and grape juice, are available.

 

Children are welcome to attend the services. Childcare is also available for infants through preschool age children during worship. The fourth Sunday of every month is also Family Sunday and the youth of IUCC are especially invited to attend and help lead worship.

 

There is no dress code at IUCC, so come as you are. Our member's attire ranges from suits and dresses to t-shirts and jeans.

 

The best way to get to know IUCC is to join us for coffee and fellowship after Sunday worship. We look forward to meeting and getting to know you better.

 

All are welcome here!

January 9 - Baptism of Christ Sunday - Beloved

As we begin the Season after the Epiphany, we rejoice that God's word continues to hold promise and power in our lives, calling each of us by name through living waters.

 

January 16 - Second Sunday after Epiphany - Abundant Love

As God's people, we live with an abudant spirit that stands in contrast to many of the world's realities and imagine hope and possibility where there is none.

 

January 23 - Third Sunday after Epiphany - Spirited Voice

Anointed by the Spirit, Jesus brings the good news of God - release, recovery, setting free. The Spirit empowers us with boldness and trust to practice God's good ways.

 

January 30 - Fourth Sunday after Epiphany - Speaking Out

Jesus' mission and ministry continue to unfold on the edge, with those on the margins, and we learn more about what it means to follow God's ways.

 

February 6 - Fifth Sunday after Epiphay - Called into Mission

In stories of call and commission, we hear an invitation to cast God's way of love, justice, and peace and gather all people into abundant life and explore what it means to be called into mission.

 

February 13 - Sixth Sunday after Epiphany - Blessings and Woes

In Jesus' Sermon on the Plain, we hear that we are blessed to bring healing and blessing to others,  inviting them to participate in the vision offered in Jesus' teaching.

 

February 20 - Seventh Sunday after Epiphany - Living as Disciples

We watch Joseph offer mercy to his brothers and continue to listen to the Sermon on the Plain, and consider what it means to go deeper, higher, wider and love as God loves.

 

February 27 - Transfiguration Sunday - Holy Mystery

On the last Sunday after the Epiphany, we hear the story of Jesus' transfiguration and pause to celebrate and hold within us the presence of Something More, which will strengthen us for the journey into Lent.
