Welcome Rev. Bob Burkhart!
Rev. Robert Burkhart is a retired United Methodist pastor. He retired in 2007 after serving churches in the Northern Illinois Conference for 43 years, his last appointment at Skokie Central UMC where he pastored for 20 years. Bob was active in several Conference groups during his ministry. Among the Boards where he was a member, his last role was chairperson of the Conference Board of Trustees. Previously he was on the Board of Pensions and Council on Finance and Administration. He also has been active in the communities where he lived, an advocate for social justice. Bob grew up on a farm near Dwight, IL. Burkhart graduated from North Central College and Evangelical Theological Seminary (now G-ETS). Volunteering is a major involvement in his retirement years – helping with the New Hope Community Food Pantry and ushering as a “Chicago Saint” for numerous performing arts venues. He and his wife Shirley live in Morton Grove.
Pastor’s Bible Study will NOT meet TODAY. We’ll resume on January 7.

Let there be lights! If you haven’t noticed the new lighting in the office and Trinity Hall lately, please visit these rooms and be amazed at what you can see! Thank you to the Trustees, Kiel and McPherson families for removing old light fixtures and installing new ones.
Thanks to Miss Carmen, the Reed, McGowan, Schantz and Canale families, and all participated in both All-Ages Christmas Pageants this year.
Thank you to everyone who bought gifts for children in the ChildServ program, mittens, hats, scarves and socks for the Warming Tree, and helped fill all of our blue bins (food pantry, Journeys/PADS, Backpack Ministry, WINGS and Our Troops).
