Parables Community, Lombard, IL

Parables Community welcomes all people in worship and fellowship, with an emphasis on creating a community of belonging and empowerment for children and adults with special needs and their families. We believe that all people are made in the image of God with gifts to share for the good of all.

Our community was inspired by the Parables Worship Ministry of the Wayzata Community Church in Wayzata, Minnesota.

We are meeting monthly at the York Center Church of the Brethren in Lombard, Illinois. Are you looking for a community like Parables? Join us for worship or contact Pastor Jeanne for more information at or 630-991-0473.
