Today we will return to a modified in-person worship option.
No in-person Sunday School or Nursey will be held at this time.
If you are attending in-person we will require participants to take these basic measures:
Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth at all times in the Building.
Keep a distance of at least 6 feet from those not in your household.
Please use hand sanitizers and wash hands.
Seating in the sanctuary will be staggered with space offered in the balcony and in the Atrium if needed. If you have questions about where to sit please ask the Ushers.
We will refrain from Congregational singing during worship.
We will offer no Pew Bibles, Hymnals, or registration pads will be available for use.
We ask you not to attend in-person if you have felt ill or have a fever. We will still be living streaming on Youtube and Facebook.
The Worship Structure will be modified.
You will be exited out of the sanctuary by the ushers at the end of the service.
Communion will be Come and Recieve Style as directed by the pastors.
10 a.m. Worship online on our Facebook Page and Youtube Channel

2021 Spiritual Growth Mission Study
Finding Peace in an Anxious World, the 2021 Spiritual Growth Study by the staff of the Urban Village Church, uses the book of Proverbs and “The Serenity Prayer” as a guide to help Christians find their way through anxiety, worry, and fear and move towards God’s peace that surpasses all understanding. Using “The Serenity Prayer” as a scaf-fold, Finding Peace in an Anxious World explores ways to discover peace through scriptural and spiritual disciplines so that we can be rooted in God and energized to live fully as disciples of Christ. “The Serenity Prayer” shaped a 2015 four-part sermon series at the Urban Village Church in Chicago. It was through that series that the church was able to address the tumultuous events of that summer and present a framework for how to approach a God who desires peace for the hearts of God’s people in times of anxiety. These sermons are the basis for this book. The four chapters, each written by a different Urban Village Church leader, focus on different aspects of the prayer—serenity, acceptance, courage, and wisdom—and each concludes with a spiritual practice to help further develop the featured char-acteristic in your life.
