Quilts to Aid Families Around the World

The 110 quilts our quilters make for Lutheran World Relief were on display the weekend of September 28-29.
These quilts give families around the world a life essential, as well as a reminder that they are not alone. From chronic poverty and conflict to drought and typhoon, the intensity of humanitarian needs continues to increase. 
Each quilt costs approximately $30 to make. Please consider donating to help offset the cost of these quilts.

Women's Bible Studies

It's not too late to join in the fun 

The Daughters of the King Bible Study is for young women looking to find faith and fellowship in a fun, low-key setting.  We'll be studying Altogether Beautiful by Heidi Goehman, an in-depth study on the Song of Songs which aims to teach us just how much God loves us and calls us beautiful.  Typically meets on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of each month.  The schedule through December is as follows: Sept 26, Oct 10 & 24, Nov 14, Dec 12 & 19 (note change in days in December due to Christmas).  Please contact Lisa Ticaric with questions or 630-310-7033

Women's Monday Night Bible Study will be studying Nehemiah this year with the book Perserverance by Donna Pyle. The group typically meets The 2nd & 4th Mondays at 7 pm. Need more info? Contact Deb Thompson.

TCNS Happenings

School is off to a great start.  The preschool and pre-k classes are full and there are only a few spots open in the Early Learners program, if anyone is interested in enrolling their 2-year-old. 

Pictured below is the pre-k class on the first day of school.


Pictured to the right is Ms. Kate and her Early Learners enjoying the felt board that was bought with a grant from the English District.  It is a picture of the story of Noah's Ark being told.

In October Fireman Blaise will visit so the children may learn about fire safety.  They always learn so much from his visits, and sometimes he even brings his firetruck!  
The children are looking forward to Oct. 27th when the children will sing "Jesus Loves Me" at the 10:30 service and also the Barefoot Book Fair will be held. Sample books and order forms will be available the morning of Oct 27th and orders will be taken that morning and through the following week, both through the paper order forms and online.
The Halloween celebration will be Oct. 30th.  The older classes will parade around the school about 10:45 if weather permits.  All of the classes will have Halloween parties run by the fantastic parent (and grandparent) volunteers.
