  • Did you know… From the Chicagoist blog: “Today marks… the 129th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire. Reams upon reams of paper have been spent chronicling one of the seminal events in Chicago’s history. We’ll refer you over to the Chicago History Museum’s online portal for all things regarding the fire for reference.”

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.”

In light of this breathtaking grace, may we fill the community with praise to His Name,
