Welcome to the North Shore Unitarian Church, where our members – individuals and families– find meaning in their searches for spiritual truths within a diverse and caring community.
Welcome to NSUC!
A church is a community first.
Newcomers to our church are seeking a religious home, a place for fellowship, an opportunity to serve, a religious education for their children, or a place in which they are free to explore their own spirituality. We’re glad that you found us, and we invite you to get to know our Beloved Community!
Our Sunday services
…are at 10:00am each Sunday.
You’ll find us
…at 2100 Half Day Road, ½ mile east of I94 and 1 mile west of Waukegan Road on the north side of the road. Our driveway is on the west side of the building and if you keep going up the hill and around the building you’ll find visitor parking in our main parking lot.
Once through our front doors you’ll be greeted by one of our members. Fill out our visitor form and put on a name tag. That way people will be sure to greet you!
Bringing the family?
If you have children, you will want to come a few minutes early so Charlotta Koppanyi, our Director of Religious Education, can help you settle your children into the appropriate class. If they would rather stay with you in the worship service, that’s okay too!
Our Sunday services are about an hour in length, and are filled with wonderful music. Our talented professional singers, wonderful choir, and lively Junior Choir add to services regularly. We also have frequent musical guests and events.
We are currently in transition between Settled Ministers. After 21 years of service, our congregation said goodbye to Rev. Gary James on June 30, 2013. During the 2013-2014 church year, we welcome several visiting UU ministers, on regular rotating basis who will offer us a variety of perspectives. We will be hiring an Interim Minister for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 years and a settled minister beginning August 2016.The search process for the settled minister will begin approximately January, 2015.
After the service
Following the service is a time for coffee, snacks, and fellowship. Pick up a yellow mug for your coffee or tea! The yellow mug along with your name tag will let us know you’re visiting us. We’ll be sure to reach out to make you feel welcome. We also offer a Visitor's Orientation on the third Sunday of each month in the Minister's Study. This is an opportunity to learn more about the church and ask questions.
