So pleased that you are exploring our website. I hope that you will visit our church in the near future and get to know us in person.
I am the Reverend Deborah Paton. I am the interim pastor of Morton Grove Community Church. This means that we are a church in transition, between regularly called pastors, yet as always, speaking truth about who we are and discovering who God is callling us to become.
You may ask...
"Why would I visit or participate in a church in transition?"
Well, even as we change, we continue to be the church, a community of faithful people...
- People worshipping God - the God who creates, redeems and sustains us
- People engaging in spiritual practices to strenghthen our faith
- People delighting in fellowship with others
- People attending to those in need, locally and around the world
In such a time as this you could be a part of our discernment process, determing and becoming a part of our future, building new friendships, and exploring with us what it means to be people of God.
In the last year we have engaged in a series of conversations to remember our history, to rediscover and reimagine our identity and our purpose. We have identified four core values:
(Luke 10: 25-28)
(Matthew 25: 31-40)
(Acts 2: 43-47)
(Acts 10: 34-36)
We understand these values to be necessary to the health and growth of our common life and work in the world. They are values we seek to live into when we are gathered together and when scattered in our daily living.
Come see what we are about,
come be a part of who we are becoming,
come join us on this journey we call faith.
Please call me at the church if you have any questions, are seeking pastoral care
or just want to get to know us better.
