Our welcome knows no boundaries of race, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic reality, education, faith background, family status, physical or mental ability. We welcome all into full participation in the life of our congregation. Northbrook United Methodist Church is an active member of the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN) which is a grass roots movement of United Methodists working for the full inclusion of all people in the United Methodist Church. Well over 700 faith communities nation-wide have voted to become Reconciling.
We are also an active member of the Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches (CCWC) which is a large group of churches of all denominations that are committed to being fully inclusive. Our members marched on Springfield for marriage equality and in the Chicago Gay Pride parade.
This stained glass window was created specifically for Northbrook United Methodist Church by the artist, Paul Holzman, in celebration of Northbrook UMC becoming a Reconciling Congregation.
