Looking for a church? We all go to the same church, The Orchard – Barrington. If you’re in the Chicago area, come for a visit. If you plan on visiting, let us know. We’d love to meet you! If you’re not in the Chicago area, check out The Gospel Coalition’s church directory.

If you’re considering seeking Christian counseling, we recommend this article from CCEF about key points to consider. We’ve been helped by great counseling resources at CCEF.

We pray you find these resources helpful to you:
