In 2018, I resigned from my position as academic dean after eleven years at the same institution, took a new job outside of higher ed, moved out of downtown Chicago, got my kids settled in at new schools, and supported my wife as she changed roles at work. In the midst of all those changes, my family and I also found Valleybrook Community Church in Elburn, Illinois. It has been one of the high points of our move. It truly feels like home.
We are a small congregation of folks and we have (like most other churches) been meeting on Zoom. I’d like to extend the invitation to any of those who read my blog, follow me on Facebook or Instagram to attend Valleybrook’s virtual service. We would love to have you with us as we celebrate Easter this weekend!
