Beach Worship & Picnic

What better way to end the summer than with worship at the beach, followed by food & fun! St. John’s is hosting a worship service at Gillson Park on Sunday, August 28th, 9:30 a.m.  Following the service, we will enjoy a picnic lunch, complete with grilled burgers, hot dogs, and an assortment of sides and desserts. Lawn games will be available after we eat.  Bring family and friends!  Everyone is invited!  

Please bring with you:
  • Lawn chairs or blankets to sit on.
  • A side dish or dessert to share. (Burgers, hot dogs, buns, condiments, lemonade, and bottled water will be provided.)
  • Your favorite lawn game!
We will be at Picnic Area 2, marked on the map below as a "2" with a green diamond around it.  It is located between the Coast Guard station and Overlook Dr.

Parking is limited, so biking or walking is recommended.  If you choose to drive, we recommend entering the park at the south entrance by the harbor (see map below).  Be mindful of the following parking restrictions, and pay close attention to parking signs when you arrive.
  • If you have a seasonal decal on your car for beach parking, you can park anywhere!
  • If you have a Wilmette car sticker, you can park anywhere other than the lot marked as a "P" with a light blue square around it on the map below. 
  • If you do NOT have a Wilmette sticker or a seasonal decal, you can park on Michigan Avenue or Upper Drive (see map). For Michigan Avenue, go left immediately at the south entrance.  For Upper Drive, stay right at the entrance and curve left in front of the Wilmette Harbor Club.
If getting to the beach service is a challenge for you, we are happy to offer rides.  Please contact Jan in the church office.

If you have any other questions, please call Jan at 847-251-1730, or email

We look forward to catching up with our St. John’s friends and welcoming others to be part of our St. John’s community!
Through your investment in this community, we can continue to grow in love and life together.
