UNION CHURCH OF HINSDALE

United Church of Christ
Wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

Update: We worship together on Sunday at 9:07 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. – live and in person! We warmly invite you to join us for either service. The 9:07 service is outdoors and is particularly kid friendly. The 10:00 service is in the Sanctuary and is (somewhat) more traditional. You can also find the 10:00 service livestreamed at our Union Church of Hinsdale YouTube channel. Because of the recent rise in COVID infections from the delta variant, we require masks at our indoor 10:00 service. The outdoor 9:07 service is still mask optional for all who are vaccinated. Contact the Rev. Mike Solberg for more information – see the staff page for contact info. The peace of Christ be with you.
