Summer is coming. Enjoy it at Ivanhoe Congregational Church!

After a spring filled with activity, and crowned by a glorious holy week, summertime promises great opportunity for engagement with the Ivanhoe Congregational Church community.

Spring has sprung, and the time is right to become involved. With Earth Day, The Night Ministry, All Ages VBS, and more, there is a lot to share with the Ivanhoe Church family.

The month of March is brimming with activity, culminating in Easter celebration at both sunrise and traditional services at Ivanhoe Congregational Church. Join the warmest and most welcoming church in Lake County, Illinois in our 186th Holy Week journey.

The Lenten journey appears to be a linear forty-day march from Ash Wednesday to its culmination in Easter's joy. But our heart doesn't always follow our head. Our lives rarely follow a straight path, sometimes led by events but often by our wandering hearts. Even Lent often starts with a commitment to giving something up that often, like a New Year's resolution, is short-lived.

For over fifty years, Ivanhoe has partnered with Avon Township to provide Christmas Gifts to families that need help making Christmas merry for their children. This Christmas, we provided gifts for 30 children, and Avon Township Supervisor Michele Bauman attended our January 7th service to offer her heartfelt appreciation.

As blustery winter arrives to Ivanhoe Congregational Church, join Northern Illinois' WARMEST congregation for our 186th February of events sharing camaraderie, companionship, and God's love.

This cultural wordplay reminds us that the most basic transforming experiences of our faith — communion and baptism — are the starting points for life "beyond" our present limitations. Join us this new year as Christ's resurrection informs and transforms our lives, our community, and our world!
