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!

 

WORSHIP

 

           May 1 - Third Sunday of Easter

In the story of Saul's transformation and renewed vision, we open our eyes to new ways we might be part of an ever-expanding community of faith and witness.

 

May 8 - Good Shepherd Sunday

Comforted by the image of the shepherd that protects, defends, leads and feeds and the example of Tabitha's loving service and kindness, we consider how every day acts of love, compassion, and kindness have the power to lift people to life.

 

         May 15 - Fifth Sunday of Easter

Peter's experience on the rooftop reminds us of our call to go beyond human set boundaries, challenges us to question the walls we build, and invites us to build bridges.

 

May 22 - Sixth Sunday of Easter

The theme of witness continues as we join the welcoming women by the river of life and see God's new ways spreading to the ends of the Earth.

 

May 29 - Seventh Sunday of Easter

We join Paul and Silas with prayers, hymns, and action for justice, peace, and truth; watch the ripples of liberating love continue to spread, and reflect on how unity in Christ and solidarity with those in need frame God's call to community.

 

June 5 - Pentecost

On the day of Pentecost, we celebrate the Spirit bursting across usual boundaries, birthing a new community and re-birthing our faith.
