Year-Round Programs

We work throughout the year to spread the message of inclusion and to connect our members to one another and resources that help us create the most welcoming faith communities.

Witnessing to Welcome…Making Our Message Visible

  • Weekly Advertisement in the Windy City Times
  • Justice Witness: on behalf of the CCWC, Planning Team members author relevant press releases and letters, and also sign petitions (for example, on marriage equality). In addition, we may encourage attendance in area protests, vigils and other gatherings for social change.

Building Greater Welcome…Fellowship & Visioning

Regular Gatherings

Attend the gatherings of the Coalition held three-four times a year. These are currently a blend of fellowship, worship and work. The Planning Team is leading the Coalition in a time of visioning during the 2012-2013 program year.
