Summer is here, and we can't wait to spend time outside relaxing at picnics, competing at volleyball, and Lord willing witnessing our brothers and sisters get baptized in the lake! Because not only does summer bring so many great outdoor activities in the city, it also means that we get to enjoy various events put on by HTC that only happen in the summer. So, as you start to look at your summer and make plans, we would encourage you and invite you to join us for as many of these events as you can!

For any questions or to request more information, email


Join us every Monday night at Montrose Beach beginning June 18th through August 30th starting at 7:00pm for our summer volleyball league! Anyone is welcome to join a team, regardless of skill level. Sign up to join a team here.

Church-Wide Picnics

Throughout the summer, we have three church-wide picnics hosted by our different congregations. This is a great time to get to know other HTC congregants from the different congregations and share a meal together! Food will not be provided, so please plan to bring something for yourself and something to share. 

Women's Bible Study

The HTC-Pilsen women will study the Gospel of John this summer. The first study will begin the week of June 10th. Contact Amy Buehler ( for more information.

Summer Softball League

A co-ed 12 inch softball league through Chicago Sport & Social Club will begin Thursday night, May 31st at UIC. A few HTC people have signed up. The earlier you join, the better chance that we’ll be on the same team. Please visit here to sign up and request who you would like to play with. Contact Andrew Sparks ( or Aaron Brummet ( for more information.

The best way to be involved in community is by enjoying time together.  Mark your calendars today for these events.
