Groups

WPLC Book Club

Please join WPLC’s book club for enjoyable discussion on feminism, Christianity, and the roles of each in our lives. This group meets on most Tuesdays at 8 p.m. in the church’s library. Email Stephanie Hoeman (stephanie.hoeman@gmail.com) for more information, or just show up!

 

Meet & Eat

“Meet & Eat” groups gather four times each year (once each quarter). The primary focus of the groups is fellowship and developing relationships. We ask participants to commit to attending all four events with their group for one year. The menu, location, date, time, and other details are coordinated by a Congregation Council via email. New pairings are made in January, April, July, and October. Click here to communicate your interest. 


Building Committee

Our building is a vital ministry in part because it allows us to provide a unique space for many different outside groups to gather. The building group is responsible for helping care for the church building and grounds. The group meets every other month to assign tasks around the building and occasionally holds work days to help fix, improve, and organize the church. Contact Pastor Jason (pastor@wickerparklutheran.org) for more information.

 

Groups

Ground Group

This group helps plant and care of the garden beds around the church and the vermicomposting (worm bin composting) here at WPLC. Contact Anne McCall (amccall@radonc.uchicago.edu) to get involved with caring for the garden beds, and learn more about how to feed our worms by contacting Amy Jewel (amy_jewel@yahoo.com).

 

Hands-On Bread Making

Join in the sacred task of making the bread for our Communion meal. Using all organic rice flour, flax, agave nectar, and spring water, we mix and bake the breads, leavened with the presence of our God. We use only plant-based products, celebrating life in all its forms. Besides the Communion bread, we will also be baking another special treat, to be determined by the bakers! This series is held at 8 a.m.on the first Sunday of the month. Feel free to drop by the basement kitchen any time from 8 to approximately 9 a.m. Contact Heidi Hedeker (heidi.hedeker@kendall.edu) with any questions.

 

Playgroup

Parents and children gather periodically for some fun and fellowship. Some gatherings feature a craft, other days a special book reading, occasionally a potluck, and every time it’s a great place to have fun. For more information and/or entry instructions please contact Kirsten (komuszyn@gmail.com).

 

Theology Club 

This group meets on the first Sunday of each month following our 10 a.m. worship. They discuss controversial religious, social, and (to a limited extent) political issues. This group is open to all ideas and beliefs. If interested, please contact Eric (jedollard1219@gmail.com).
