March 03, 2017 at Instituto Cervantes Chicago in Chicago.
Our Easter Festival begins with a free, community breakfast at 9:30am, followed by our worship service at 10:30am where we celebrate Jesus’ glorious victory over sin and death.
Easter celebrates the event in which God tore down every barrier that separates us, and has reconciled us to God and to one another. Here we live out God’s radical welcome to all people. Join us at this diverse church, where we gather for 40 days in the season of Lent, for a time of focus and simplicity, leading up to Easter when we celebrate God’s life-changing love.
We are a multicultural, intergenerational church that welcomes all people, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. As a church comprised of people from diverse backgrounds, we celebrate diversity as a beautiful gift from God.

Here in Chicago, a multi-faith coalition is holding Governor Rauner accountable for his decision to close Illinois’ borders to Syrian refugees. We’ll have a great view of Trump Tower in the background – making clear that Rauner must be held accountable for his contributions to Trump’s climate of hate.
Like President-Elect Trump, Governor Bruce Rauner exploits hate to score political points. One year ago, he shut Illinois’ borders to Syrian refugees, feeding into Trump’s statement at the time that taking in Syrian refugees would be “insane.”
In doing so, Rauner helped create a political climate of fear and confusion that has caused immeasurable damage to efforts to resettle refugees in the U.S. He also contributed to escalating hatred being directed at Muslim and Arab communities.
We demand that Governor Rauner definitively reverse his decision to close Illinois’ borders to Syrian refugees, and commit to using his influence and all the resources at his disposal to make clear Illinois welcomes Syrian refugees.
We got some of the hottest comedians in the city of Chicago, plus comedians who are allergic to Peanut Butter.
Doors open at 8:00pm, show at 8:30.
