ReconcilingWorks is proud to announce our newest RIC congregation St. Paul Lutheran Church in Villa Park, Illinois.

“We humans are good at putting up walls, too often identifying ‘our kind of people,’ while labeling those who are different. Yet God enters our lives with the unfathomable gift of boundless grace and limitless love. At St. Paul Lutheran Church we proclaim God’s amazing love and strive to honor God’s call to share it without reservation. Regardless of age, color or size, sexual orientation or gender identity, socio-economic circumstance, marital status, ability or challenge, Christ makes us one. To those whom labels have served to separate from the love of God, we say, ‘Join us!’

At St. Paul we journey together as disciples listening to the Word of God and engaging in prayer and worship. We sing for joy. We encourage our young people and care for our elders. We actively reach out in service to our community and the world. We are blessed beyond measure. We invite you to be a part of the community of believers that is St. Paul Lutheran Church.”

Please join St. Paul for worship on Saturdays at 5pm, and on Sundays at 8am and 10:45am at 545 S. Ardmore Ave., Villa Park, IL 60181. Visit them at http://www.stpaulvillapark.org/ and at facebook.com/stpaulvillapark
