Christian Education
Morton Grove Community Church offers a variety of opportunities designed to support youth and adults in their quest to continuously grow spiritually, through the understanding of God’s word and the heritage of our faith, and through the support and fellowship of others on the journey.  Recent events have included:
Book Studies:  A women’s book club meets monthly, reading books such as I Am Malala, by Christina Lamb and Malala Yousafzai. 

Summer Mission Trip:  In past years, youth and adult leaders have traveled each summer to work with the Appalachia Service Project for a week.


Movie nights: After viewing a movie together, Rev. Dominski or Rev. Hughes leads a discussion of how the movie viewed portrays theological issues such as forgiveness, healing, transformation, and redemption, among others.  Movies viewed and discussed include The Blind Side, Doubt, Namesake, Pay It Forward, and Finding Forrester.

Classes: A Bible study is taught by Rev. Hughes each Monday morning.  Classes have been offered after worship in the past on the biblical passages used in Handel’s Messiah, components of blessings found in the Bible, and the theology of John Calvin. 

Dr. Sarah Tanzer, Professor of New Testament and Early Judaism at McCormick Theological Seminary, led a three-session series on how the Bible was formed, the gospels in the Bible, and gospels that did
not make it into the Bible.  View excerpts from Dr. Tanzer's talks with us by clicking the arrows on the videos below.
Biblical storytelling:  Biblical storytellers have performed during worship.  For example, on one Palm Sunday the story of Jesus’ passion from the gospel of Mark was "told" on Palm Sunday. 
Labyrinth: A labyrinth has been offered during Holy week for prayer and reflection, with instruction on this spiritual exercise.


Daily Devotions: Daily devotional books are given to the congregation during Advent and Lent.


Dinners for Eight: Members gather in groups of eight in members’ homes or local restaurants to break bread together, and to get to know one another better.
