Reflections from Sunday

This past Sunday morning we gathered outside of UniPlace for a worship service. We were delighted to see Samir playing the organ loud enough for us to hear outside, and able to wheel the piano towards the Sanctuary doors. It may have been a short service, but the fellowship with friends was incredible. Thank you […]

Lectio Divina Prayer Time

Lectio Divina is the practice of prayerfully reflecting on the words of scripture for personal growth, rather than academic study of the passage. Weekly, individuals are invited to join in the parlor at UniPlace from 11:00-11:45 am on Wednesdays. We listen together to a passage, sit in silence to listen for God’s word to us […]

Outdoor Summer Worship

July 26 a gentle breeze welcomed friends of UniPlace to the farm where Pastors Kris Light and Ed Taylor live and garden. Some brought lawn chairs, some stayed in the cars, others found a comfortable spot on the lawn already set up. We shared communion with pre-packaged grapes and crackers, wore our masks and kept […]

God Is Here!

Today in worship we celebrate that God is always near. Rain or shine, we can find happy places and sacred spaces.

The fifth book of the New Testament, coming right after the four Gospels, Acts is the story of how the early witnesses to the resurrection of Jesus started the Church. Written by […]

Each Wednesday and Thursday, from 6-7 pm, to-go meals are served from the UniPlace parking lot. Thanks to our wonderful cooks, Claudia and Juan, the menu is […]

All Worship from Home through May

As you have no doubt already heard, the Stay-at-Home order for Illinois is extended through the month of May. Accordingly, our worship in the physical place UniPlace calls home will continue to be impossible for the these weeks. Meanwhile, we continue to lead and participate in worship through the digital spaces made possible through the […]

Paint with Pride!

Last year for Pride a few members of UniPlace got together after worship to decorate paintings to hand out at the event–and it was a wonderful success. That’s why this year we are hoping to have even more congregation members involved, and to handout twice as many paintings. Join us for a relaxing after-worship painting […]
