  • Celebrate Recovery

    When we put our values into action and trust God for the results, things like Celebrate Recovery happen.

    This ongoing weekly support group walks with people on their journey of recovery from addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered twelve step recovery ministry, based on the eight recovery principles found in the Beatitudes from the book of Matthew.  Celebrate Recovery is here for you to serve or be served.

    The Bible clearly states “all have sinned”. It is our nature to sin. None of us is untainted. Because of sin, we’ve all hurt ourselves, we’ve all hurt other people, and others have hurt us. This means each of us needs repentance and recovery in order to live our lives the way God intended. What we need is a biblical and balanced program to help people overcome their hurts, habits and hang-ups. This is what Celebrate Recovery is all about. Based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory, this recovery program is unique and is effective in helping people change. This group meets on THURSDAY NIGHTS at 7PM in the Chapel. You’re welcome to join in at any time. 

    Jeff Janulis facilitates this group and can be contacted for questions at 708-668-2447 or e-mail him at jeffery63@att.net.

     

     

  • Food Drive

    The opportunity to treasure Jesus is often shown in our willingness to help those in need. At Moraine Valley one beautiful opportunity to partake is through the monthly Food Drive.  

    On the first Sunday of the month the community of Moraine Valley church is invited to bring non-perishable items and household products to the chapel, where a loving team of volunteers will receive them and prepare bags for families who are in a season of need. This ministry is a great way to actively engage in treasuring Jesus and blessing those here, in the body at Moraine. 

    Any surplus of items is donated to our ministry partner Operation Blessing to treasure those beyond our walls.

     

              

     

     

  • Grief Share

    The most difficult moments in our lives often come after the loss of a loved one.  At Moraine Valley we know that the value of authentic community can be so helpful through this difficult season.   

    Grief Share is a caring group of people who will walk alongside you as a partner on your road to healing.  Grief Share meets weekly for thirteen consecutive weeks.  Each Grief Share session has three distinct elements: a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery, support group discussion, and a workbook for personal study and reflection.

     

    Grief Share meets Friday nights from 7p-9p in room 105.

     

  • Prayer Team

    The intentionality of a fervent prayer life is key to knowing God on a deeper, more intimate level.  On Sunday morning we invite you into an intentional prayer opportunity either before the service with Pastor Pat and others or during the service with Elders and Deacons. 

    Before the Service – A group of brothers and sisters join Pastor Pat for a short time of prayer each Sunday morning.

    During the Service – A group of Deacons, Elders and any who wish to participate come together to pray as the sermon is being delivered to the body.  Groups gather on a rotating basis one time per month.

    You are encouraged to bring your prayer life to a new level with this intentional step for the body at Moraine.
