“You and The Word” Bible Study
Our regular Bible study group meets the last Sunday of each month immediately following worship. Participants gather for fellowship in a small-group setting, which both encourages and enhances thoughtful discussion and the exchange of ideas.
(Bible study is moving to Zoom. Time and date to be determined.)
Acacia Park has a Little Free Library!
What is a Little Free Library?
A Little Free Library is a community book exchange. It belongs to everyone, and everyone is free to use it!
Take a Book—If you see something you’d like to read, you are welcome to take it. When you’re finished, share it with a friend; bring it back to the church, or leave it in another Little Free Library. (To find other Little Free Libraries in our area or anyplace else, click here.)
Leave a Book—It’s up to everyone to keep this library full of good reads. Bring books to share when you can, and be a friend of Little Free Libraries everywhere. Help support this mission of building community, sparking creativity, and inspiring readers.
Acacia Park Supports St. Cyprian’s Food Pantry
Located in the Ministry Center of United in Faith Lutheran Church
6535 W. Irving Park Road
Chicago, IL 60634
Ways to Get Involved–
DONATE FOOD: Non-perishable food can be donated during United in Faith office hours–Wednesdays 10:00 am to 2:00 pm; put donations in the shopping cart in the Fellowship Hall–or at St. Cyprian’s Food Pantry on Mondays and Thursdays between 9:00 and 11:00 am. Please contact St. Cyprian’s directly to donate a large quantity of food or to inquire about donating perishable (but unexpired) food items.
DONATE MONEY: Because St. Cyprian’s orders some food from the Greater Chicago Food Depository and also pays an employee to staff the food distribution, money is one of the most needed commodities for its successful work. St. Cyprian’s can buy larger quantities of food from GCFD at lower prices than grocery stores, so please consider donating money.
VOLUNTEER: Volunteers are needed on Mondays and Thursdays during food distribution hours. On most Wednesday mornings, the GCFD makes a delivery, so volunteers are needed to receive and sort the food items.
