 YPC's 75th Anniversary

In September 2018 we celebrated 75 years of gathering together as a church family at the corner of York Road and Lexington. Celebrating the ways that God has been with us as we've has grown and changed.

We came together with a mission event at Northern Illinois Food Bank; youth scavenger hunt and pizza party;  a golf outing; a family fun fair including an obstacle course, face painting and food; an amazing adventure road rally; a special worship service with guest preacher Susan Krummel, Chicago Presbytery Executive Director; and a Celebration Banquet at the Diplomat West.

Members of the congregation helped create the squares that were put together by Tom and Caroline Wolfe in the beautiful quilted paraments designed by Tom Wolfe. They are used in worship during ordinary time. The paraments are complimented by wall hanging created by Rick Raley.
