Groups

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

Garden Group

This group helps plant and care for the garden behind the church. Last year we had herbs, tomatoes, squash, and strawberries, among other things. Join the group or stop by to tend the garden on your own time. The best part is taking home and sharing the fruits of your work. This group also takes care of the vermicomposting (worm bin composting) here at WPLC. Contact Pastor Jason (pastor@wickerparklutheran.org) for more information.

 

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 generally gather on the third Saturday of each month from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. 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) or Suzanne (slw295@gmail.com).
