God’s Honest Truth

Have you heard of the Moth Radio Hour on National Public Radio? The Adult Education Committee has planned its own variation on this popular live storytelling medium. Now you can participate in two evenings of live storytelling at First Pres, featuring real stories shared, in person, by fellow church members. We’re calling these events God’s Honest Truth.

The first storytelling gathering will take place Wednesday, May 31, at 7:00 pm. 
Theme: “Barriers: Stories About Overcoming Life’s Challenges.”
Challenges faced can be large or small, and may include overcoming fears or loss.

The second storytelling gathering will be Wednesday, July 12, at 7:00 pm.
Theme: “Independence: Stories About People Claiming Their Independence.”

Contact Alex Lang, at or 847-255-5900, to share your story. Stories must be 5-10 minutes in length and will be developed with guidance from Alex.

Church Tagline: 

Choose love. Be the light. Change the world.

The three phrases in this tagline encapsulate our vision—where we are going—and our mission—how we will get there. This tagline is a powerful way to help us understand, own, and spread the word about our identity and purpose as First Presbyterian Church. Learn more.
