This Sunday (10/13) is the Chicago Marathon.

The marathon proceeds through the neighborhoods of the UIC Area and makes it very hard to get to The Meeting Place. As in years past, we are cancelling our regular Sunday morning gathering.

Instead, go to either:

(1) Church of the Beloved’s Saturday evening service at 4:00 PM at The Meeting Place.

(2) Pilsen Community Church’s Sunday evening service at 5:30 PM at 1325 W. 18th Street.

Also, there’s a great neighborhood organization called Connecting 4 Communities that we should all be aware of. They are sponsoring a neighborhood cheering section located on Taylor and Morgan Streets from 8:15 AM to 1:00 PM. It would be wonderful for IBC people living in the area that want to watch the marathon to go see it from there with them! For more information please refer to the Connecting 4 Communities website at
