Welcoming Our New Pastor

We are so excited to be welcoming the Reverend Dr. Michael Daly to First Congregational UCC of Elmhurst. This Sunday, October 22nd, Rev. Daly will be leading us in worship for the first time as our called Minister.
It is our hope that you will be a part of our 10:00 a.m. service to receive and welcome Rev. Daly. We are so grateful for all that the Lord is doing among us here at First Congregational and ask for your participation in worship as we embark in a new ministry journey.

An Authentic Tostada Luncheon
Immediately after worship our Youth and their Parents are hosting a delicious tostada lunch to raise funds for our 2018 Summer Mission Work Trip to the Island of Puerto Rico.
Your participation at this Youth Ministry Fundraiser will not just be delicious, but will help our Youth meet their financial goal.
 
Looking forward to having you join us this Sunday.
