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 9:15 and 11:15 am from Labor Day through Memorial Day, and at 10:00 through the summer months.
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. Our minister, Rev. Gary James, speaks on all but the last Sunday of the month, when we host guest speakers.
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. You also can meet with Rev. Gary James in his office after services if you have questions for him.
