Over a century ago God called a group of Episcopalians to found a church in Champaign, and we are still here at the corner of State and University proclaiming his love and serving his world. In October 1917, the cornerstone of our beautiful Ralph Adams Cram church was laid, and we are excited to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our building this year!! An array of events is planned throughout the year and we hope you will join us for as many as you can. The kickoff event is a dinner and dance on October 6th.... mark your calendar now!
Look as well for a new hymn commissioned in honor of our building Centennial, a 1662 Evensong with period music, and a joyous rededication with our Bishop in attendance on Pentecost (May 20) 2018, the 100th anniversary of the consecration of the church.
As part of the celebration, we have collected a list of suggestions to improve our property for ongoing and expanded ministry. People swiftly began donating to support this Centennial Wishlist, which aims to: Make worship work better, help us tell our story, and lay the foundation for future generations. Take a look at the full list to the right and feel free to download the list to use in praying about whether you are called to take part in supporting these goals.
