Friday Update

Love Languages
February 5, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. Online and in-person 

Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson
We will begin our month on the theme of “love” with another service focused on 10 big ideas I’ve learned in the last 15 years.  I have found the pop-theory of “love languages” to be a gift in understanding myself and others.  We don’t all give or receive love – from partners, family, friends and ourself – in the same way.  Understanding the diversity of love can make us better lovers of life and one another. 

Order of Service

We will Share the Plate with Children’s Home and Aid
Children’s Home & Aid is a leading child and family service agency in Illinois. We help children recover their health, their hope, and their faith in the people around them. 

For 138 years, we have shown up for Illinois families. We are in the places where it’s proven to be the most effective: at home, in the classroom, and in the community. We are an agency that puts families at the center of every decision and believe that communities where we all work, play and live together can be strengthened through data-informed, collaborative and preventative solutions. Our offices are located across Illinois and serve nearly 30,000 children and families each year in over 65 counties, linking them to a network of resources.
