Christian Worship Services
Welcome to ‘Fields of Grace’ Sunday Morning Worship
Sunday Morning Worship
As part of our community outreach, Stade’s Farm donates the use of their space for a unique outdoor worship experience, offering non-denominational contemporary Christian services called “Fields of Grace.” Worship services are held in the beautiful outdoors, surrounded by miles of fields and plenty of sunshine. Each Sunday the stage transforms into a vibrant combination of high energy, contemporary music and relevant messages from a variety of speakers, churches and area pastors, all set up by Fields of Grace. Services are designed for all ages, including children. and everyone is welcome to come as a family and worship together. Fields of Grace strives to provide a rich environment in which to learn and grow.
When you arrive you can expect to be warmly greeted, receive a worship bulletin, and then make your way to the complimentary apple cider donuts and fresh-brewed coffee. You can then settle down in one of our many lawn chairs or maybe you prefer to sit at a picnic table. We encourage people to fellowship before services begin and get to know your friends and neighbors. Stade’s sets up sun umbrellas on the warmer days for those who prefer more shade.
The 2018 Services will be held every Sunday morning, May 27th through October 28th, (rain or shine), from 10:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.** In the event of inclement weather, a covered pavilion is where we gather for services.
Communion is made available the fourth Sunday of each month and is held directly after the worship services. You are encouraged you to read the Fields of Grace’s statement on communion. Fields of Grace warmly invites you to join them as they celebrate communion with our Lord.
After services visitors can explore nature walks along the fields, visit the market to learn about in-season produce, or relax at the facility’s pavilion or at one of their many outdoor picnic tables.
Many area residents make this their home church during the summer months and look forward to the variety of speakers/pastors and energetic musicians that lead worship each year. With its peaceful setting, Fields of Grace Worship Services may seem a world away from the big-city hustle. Stade’s is nestled away in a gorgeous farm community, just minutes from Route 12 and Spring Grove Road, in McHenry County.
“We strive to make Stade’s Farm and Market a place where nonprofit groups and community members can relax, focus, and ultimately experience worship in a whole new way,” said owner Vern Stade-
We warmly welcome you, your family, friends, and neighbors to come grow with us!
