What’s Happening

Are you new to Hinsdale Covenant Church? If so, then we’d love to have you stay for lunch to talk with Pastor Lars, ask your questions, and learn more about our church. The Newcomer Lunch will be hosted at the 4th street parsonage (located just west of church at 18 E. 4th St.).

RSVP to attend

We desire individual and corporate renewal in our church family and would love to have you join us in this prayer and fasting season. Each Wednesday, would you consider committing to fasting 10-12 hours and 30 minutes of dedicated prayer? Pastor Lars will send out guided prayer points for the day to those who sign up to receive them.

Worship in the Upper Room
2/29, 3/28, 4/25 at 6PM

Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom!
And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God.

(Hebrews 12:28 The Message)
WORSHIP in the Upper Room are evenings that are focused on worshipping God. But you don’t have to have it all figured out. Everyone who seeks God through worship, word and prayer is invited for these intimate gatherings. We’ll meet on the last Saturday of the month starting at 6pm in the Upper Room at Hinsdale Covenant.
We’ll learn to engage God’s Spirit more deeply, as we celebrate:
  • What God Has Done (Saturday, Feb 29)
  • What God Is Doing (Saturday, March 28)
  • What God Will Do (Saturday, April 25)
If you desire to experience God in a deep and fresh way, then we invite you to join us for WORSHIP in the Upper Room.

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is a ministry of listening, discernment, and prayer in a confidential setting of encouragement and compassion. Through this ministry one discerns the presence and work of God’s Spirit with a companion who sets aside the concerns of their own life to attend to the experience of God in the life of another. We are fortunate to have two Spiritual Directors that sets aside one day each month to meet with members of our church family. We hope you are deeply blessed by your time in Spiritual Direction. Cost $50 for a one hour session.

Sign up for January 31 with Diana Shiflett
