Softball at Marklund

Softball at Marklund:  Thursday July 19.  Must be at least 14 years old

High school and college students from our church have been volunteering at Marklund for several years now, coming to decorate resident doors at Christmas time and assisting with the summer softball games.  These experiences, especially the softball games, have been wonderful ways for our students to be introduced to the idea that though limited in some ways, Marklund’s residents rise above challenges to engage in fun activities in unique ways.  …  We are learning that even those who have trouble communicating or functioning still enjoy eye contact, a gentle touch, conversation, AND- fun stuff to do.  We enjoy our time at Marklund.”

–Marcia Schneider, Director of Youth and Young Adults, Congregational Church of Batavia, Batavia, Illinois

Aurora Gay Pride Parade

Stepping out on Open and Affirming - The Justice and Witness Committee invites all members and friends to witness to the inclusive love of God by marching in the first ever Aurora Gay Pride Parade on Sunday, June 17th. We will carry our church banner, wear COB T-shirts or red T-shirts, carry signs of our making and pass out Skittles with business cards. Ann Alexander has graciously offered to drive her pick-up truck, allowing some unable to walk to parade also. (Yes, it is Father’s Day - but the parade steps off at 12 noon and will be done in time to also celebrate Father' Day - some Aurora establishments will be offering special discounts to celebrate after the parade), For more information, to affirm your presence that day and/or to reserve a place with the truck, please contact the church office at office@congregationalchurch.org
