Tuesday Morning Prayer
Taken from our Book of Common Prayer, Morning Prayer is offered each Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m., all are welcome to participate in morning prayer attended by the clergy and staff of Church of Our Saviour. Morning prayer includes the scripture readings and Gospel passage for the upcoming Sunday, followed by reflection and discussion, along with prayers for the community.
Part of the COS Connect Groups, Come and open your soul and replenish your mind each week at COS Connect Centering Prayer. Every Wednesday at 7pm in the Sanctuary we gather quietly and offer this ancient form of prayer. No experience needed, just an openness and desire to seek God in the silence.
Morning Glories - Bible Study
Part of the COS Connect Groups, This weekly COS Connect Group is a bible study group that meets each Tuesday morning at 7:00am in the Pleasant Room at COS. If you are an early-riser who wants to start off the day with a fresh scriptural perspective and a little gentle fellowship.
Ten Commandments Group
Part of the COS Connect Groups, The Ten Commandments COS Connect Group meets each Tuesday in the Rectory Living Room at 6:30pm. Based on the 10 commandments from Exodus, this group looks at how these traditional "rules" can open the hearts and minds of modern people.
The men of Church of Our Saviour gather on the last Saturday of each month at 8:15 a.m. for coffee, breakfast, and to enjoy each other’s company. The group usually meets at the Whole Foods on Fullerton by the CTA station. Please contact the office for more information or to confirm the location.
Inquirers Classes are for people new to the Episcopal Church and confirmed Episcopalians alike who wish to share their journeys of faith and learn more about the distinctive traditions of the Episcopal/Anglican Communion and Church of Our Saviour. In these classes you will learn about church history, the Bible, the Book of Common Prayer, the catechism within the Book of Common Prayer, and the sacraments (especially Baptism and Holy Eucharist). For those adults wishing to participate in the sacrament of Confirmation, this class is part of the journey towards that goal. Candidates for adult baptism are also encouraged to attend.
Each month we explore Christianity and the world around us through varied and interesting literature on wide-ranging topics. We meet at 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month, directly after the Healing Eucharist. Best of all, reading the entire book is not a prerequisite to participate! Check out the current books and full list for the year here, or contact the office for more information.
