Memorial Service for Gordon Straw

Saturday, February 9, 2019 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm

The family of Gordon Straw invites all who would like to come to his memorial service: we will be celebrating his wonderful and beautiful life together on Saturday, February 9th at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, 1100 East 55th St. Chicago, Illinois 60615. This was where he worked as a associate professor of Spiritual Formation and what he was most proud of - it was his dream job. The faculty/staff have been more than gracious enough to let us use their chapel space for the service and celebration. There will be a pre-service gathering from 1-3pm and the service will be from 3-5pm with a reception and refreshments afterwards. Please join us.

Entrances are directly across from Scoville Park. The sanctuary is on the second floor. We ask that you leave parking directly in front of First Baptist for their congregation, unless you have ability issues. Parking is available in the Public Garage at 720 North Blvd. by the Green line elevated train. Wait at the elevator lobby for a shuttle if needed.
