Our organist, Joanna Vanni’s retirement service.

For all of us, Joanna Vanni has been a part of special events in our lives such as weddings, baptisms, concerts and special activities. Joanna’s music has touched many of us in different ways and at different times. We have clapped our hands as she played a fast and “upbeat” piece, and we have often felt deeply moved by the spiritual and classic music she played.

River Forest UMC has been blessed by Joanna presence in our midst and by her willingness to share with us her wonderful gift of music.  We will miss her, but she will always be a part of our church family.

RFUMC in the Wright Plus 2016 !

IMG_7956We were very blessed and honored to participate in the Wright Plus 2016, a Housewalk in Oak Park and River Forest IL, Organized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust. Our Church functioned as the 2016 Wright plus prairie School Exhibit Area and oasis.

 

Visitors could admired the original art glass based on a stylized wheat design windows designed by Drummond in 1871, they watched a video and photographic display panels focusing on research highlights related to Wright, his studio and the prairie school architects.

The RFUMC youth group sold water and snacks to contribute with the PADS program, and while we were selling snacks we played traditional and contemporary music with guitars, violin and drums to offer a fun experience to our visitors.

Our church members worked hard to exhibit our church building to the world; we offered our facilities with joy and love for our community, and we want to continue to do more activities and programs in the future.
