***IMPORTANT: VENUE CHANGE FOR THIS MONTH***
Our friends at the Comfort Station have an event this Tuesday, so I have been working to secure a new place to sing for this month. Thankfully, we have a wonderful venue lined up for this coming Tuesday night, September 10th:
Covenant Presbyterian Church
2012 W Dickens Ave
Chicago, IL 60647
We will sing on the stage in this sanctuary at our normal time of 7:00-9:00pm. There will be a short introduction for new singers, followed by singing from the 1991 Denson book. We will have loaner books available.
If you are driving, the church is a short distance from the Armitage and Damen exits off of I-90. There is free parking available in the lot behind the church building, accessible on W Charleston St. For commuters, the church is about a half mile away from both the Clybourn Metra stop and the Damen and Western Blue Line stops.
Note: There are stairs to get into the main sanctuary where we will sing.
Fox Valley Area Singings
PLEASE NOTE--Summer 2019--Bethlehem Lutheran Church is under construction so this singing has temporarily relocated to the home of Paul Hough: 507 Richards, Geneva, IL 60134
