Developing the capacity of congregations to support recovery and wellness
If you would like to attend, please RSVP online with the registration link or call Prince of Peace Lutheran Church office at 847-359-3451.
The goal of this workshop is to increase our understanding of mental health issues faced by individuals in our congregations and community, and grow our capacity to support recovery and wellness. All of us are vulnerable to stress and experience worry, fears, anxiety and other challenges to our mental health. In this event we will focus on the five particular areas of concern:
· Children's mental health
· Serious mental illness
· Substance use
· Issues of aging
Prince of Peace and Crosspoint will gather as ONE CHURCH in ONE LOCATION on ONE DAY!

Have you ever longed to be a missionary to a foreign land? Did you know that there is a very important foreign mission field right on your doorstep, right here in our homeland? The United States accepts more refugees, and more immigrants than any other country of the World.
Since 1965, 59 million immigrants have arrived in the U.S., the greatest number coming in the last ten to fifteen years. These foreign immigrants have accounted for over fifty percent of this nation's population growth between 2015 and 2065. According to the Pew Research Center, during the next fifty years these foreign immigrants are projected to account for 88 percent of the U.S population increase. (www.pewhispanic.org/2015/09/28)
The largest group of these immigrants is Hispanic and northern Illinois, the greater Chicago metropolitan area, has the fifth largest concentration of Hispanics in the U.S.A.
Many people debate the advantages and disadvantages of this influx of people—from job availability, to legal status, whether people should speak the English language, and on and on. All of these debates are valid and the issues need to be addressed. But the church only needs to find the answer to one question. Have these people ever heard the Gospel? How can we minister to such a large number of people? We can be sure of one thing: the soul of every man, woman, and child coming to America is important to God.
Join us in worship, August 20 and & 21 as Pastor Dennis Perryman shares a special message, "¡Enviando!" telling how God is using Pastors and people of the Northern Illinois District to reach these new immigrant neighbors for whom Christ died.
Yes, you can be a foreign missionary! And you can be one right here in Northern Illinois!
Rev. Perryman is an LCMS Pastor working for the Northern Illinois District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (NID). He is doing development work for ¡Enviando! – a campaign to expand God’s loving reach to our Hispanic neighbors in Northern Illinois. Through ¡Enviando!, the NID hopes to ignite, expand and more firmly secure God’s loving reach to Latinos in Northern Illinois through the sending of missionaries and the launch of new missions. The purpose of his sermon is to help saints at POP to become aware of the open door that God is creating here in America to reach Latinos with the gospel. It is also to ask for financial support for the Missionary School and for bilingual Hispanic candidates to the seminary (which is outside of our normal protocol).
You are invited to Room 9 Thursday, July 31 at 7:00pm where Vicar Matt Koenig will introduce himself and speak about his ministry career. You will have an opportunity to ask questions, talk with him, and get to know Matt on a more personal level. There will be snacks and drinks for everyone. We hope to see you there!
You are invited to the Fellowship Hall Sunday, July 31 at 9:30am where Vicar Matt Koenig will introduce himself and speak about his ministry career. You will have an opportunity to ask questions, talk with him, and get to know Matt on a more personal level. There will be snacks and drinks for everyone. We hope to see you there!
Can't make it on July 31? Vicar Matt will speak again in Room 9 on Thursday, August 4 at 7:00pm.
Let's welcome Vicar Matt Koenig, our new Vicar of Discipleship, his wife, Dawn and their daughters, Faith and Hope, into our POP family. His INSTALLATION will take place during all July 9-10 worship services. Join us for a welcome RECEPTION in the Fellowship Hall at 9:30am Sunday, July 10.
To help make their move a little easier, we are throwing them a GIFT CARD SHOWER. Please bring gift cards for restaurants, grocery stores, home improvement/decorating stores, etc. to the POP office or put in the drop box at the Connection Center by July 10.
