WORSHIP

 

Worship begins at 9:00am on Sunday mornings.

 

While we have returned to in-person worship, a livestream option is also 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!

During the season of Advent, we will be exploring the classic themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love - God's gifts to us as we await the greatest gift of all, the birth of Jesus Christ. Join us as we unwrap these gifts each week, with reflections by congregation members, special music, and a few surprises along the way!

A Blue Christmas, or Longest Night, service is a time to come together and recognize the grief that can come along with the holiday season. 

 

This year, we will gather on Wednesday, December 21, at 7:00pm in the sanctuary for a brief time of worship and reflection, followed by cookies and coffee in Volkening Hall for any who would like to talk further.

Christmas Eve service will be held at 7:00pm on December 24. This will be a candlelight gathering as we welcome the long-awaited Messiah into our lives and into the world. 

 

Our Christmas Day service will be held at 9:00am on December 25, filled with joyous carols. Come celebrate this blessed day with us - PJ’s and ugly sweaters allowed!
