Welcome to the Lutheran Church of Martha and Mary website. Happy Summer! Join us for some of our fun summer time events!
Does your car need a wash? On Sunday, July 10th from 9:00 AM till Noon, the Youth Group will be washing cars for a free-will donation. Stop by, check us out, and get your car washed! Proceeds will benefit the refugee family we are co-sponsoring through Refugee One.
Join us for another "Under the Stars" movie night on Saturday, July 23, 7:45 PM. Bring your lawn chair or blanket to our outdoor platform for a great movie! Popcorn and lemonade will be provided.
Mark your calendars for this summer's Vacation Bible School, “The Praying Pier”, Tuesday, August 2 through Thursday, August 4, 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Sometimes in our life, sailing is smooth and sometimes the seas get stormy. Our theme for VBS this year is found in Philippians 4:6 - “Do not worry. Learn to pray about everything. Give thanks to God as you ask Him for what you need.” This VBS is for the whole family, ages 2 to adults. We’ll have food, crafts, music, games, and bible classes for all ages. Click here to view VBS photos from 2014 and 2015.
On Saturday, August 13th from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM we’re inviting our neighbors to join us for our 1st Annual Summer Block Party! There will be a Dunk Tank, Bounce House, Games, Hot Dogs & Hamburgers, and lots of Fun!
Adult Bible Study continues on Monday nights at 7:00 PM. Our study material is “The Early Church” narrated by Pastor Ray Vander Laan. Click here to view the first session on YouTube. Join us! – It’s no problem if you can’t make every session. Each video is a separate topic.
We have a lot of Faith in Action activities this summer, also. On Saturday, July 9th a group will join the Haiti Mission team as they gather to pack food at Feed My Starving Children in Schaumburg.
Martha and Mary is co-sponsoring a refugee family through Refugee One with three other local congregations (St. Marks and Grace Lutheran in Mt. Prospect, and Ascension in Riverside). The family of four, a mom, dad and two young daughters (age 3 and 5) from Syria arrived in mid-June, and are getting settled in their apartment. They have spent more than 3 years in a refugee camp, and the younger daughter is physically disabled. Click here to learn more or make a monetary donation towards the sponsorship of this family.
We’re participating in the WINGS Back to School Supply Drive. Tags listing supplies needed as well as the grades of the students are available on the library window. Please take a backpack or more if you are able to fill with supplies. The backpacks must be returned by July 24.
