    1. It was funny, we joined this church shortly after I moved full time to Chicago. There are a LOT of Lutheran churches in the area and the pastor asked why I picked this one. I gave him two reasons. (1) The interior of the church is almost identical to the Lutheran church I grew up in, just smaller in size and (2) when I peeked into the refrigerator in the church kitchen there was a 24 pack of imported beer in there :-) (we have beer and wine at our church picnic and annual German night).

  2. Beautiful! Love the red flowers against that beautiful stone!

    1. Our pastor asked me to take some pictures for our church website so I went over during the week to take some. This was one of my favorites.

  3. That is a most welcoming entrance and for sure welcoming!

  4. Me every year: "I should grow some geraniums."

  5. What a welcoming place with the pretty red flowers by the door!

  6. We thought the same thing about it being a very inviting entryway. Simple and elegant all at the same time.

  7. The church was built in 1925 and the stained glass and the stonework is awesome. We have a great pastor - he's in his late 30's and very smart (I just beta read his Master's Thesis) but he has a delightful sense of humor and everyone, of all ages, just loves him. We're small, about 90 members but between book clubs and exercise class, dinners, potlucks and German night (with a band and beer) we have great fellowship.
