One Church, One Book

As our nation wrestles with the issues of race, social justice and economic equity, we at FPCE are invited, together as one church, to read the book  Beyond Color Blind: Redeeming our Ethnic Journey  by Sarah Shin. We’ve purchased your household a book so we can continue to engage together.
If  were not able to pick up your book in person this past week, no worries. Please contact, Janice at jdobschuetz@firstpresevanston.org  to make other arrangements (either by mail or delivery).
We’ll gather together on Zoom on Wednesday, July 29, at 7 pm, for a virtual All-Church Townhall on the book’s many timely themes.

New Sunday Worship platform coming July 12

As mentioned in this week’s eNewsletter feature story, we will be moving to a new only worship platform on Sunday, July 12. The new platform is called the Church Online Platform. You can learn more about it here. Our goal is to make it easier for us as a church to worship together instead of in three separate online settings as we currently are. This will also improve our direct communication with the congregation and give us one place to invite all new visitors to attend. 

Need help? Here’s who to call or email.
Contact FPCE Parish Nurse Julie Ruchniewicz at jruchniewicz@firstpresevanston.org if you have a need or would like to be contacted by her team.

Adult Education

“Be Not Afraid”

Our online fellowship time/adult education takes place on Zoom following our Sunday service. This will lead into our adult education time, when we will continue our look at God’s assuring words of “Be Not Afraid” from scripture. David Ivaska, author of the book “Be Not Afraid” from InterVarsity Press, leads our studies.
