Sorry for the confusion. Yes, some of the images here are from United Lutheran's 4 p.m. service. Some are from United Methodist's 7 p.m. service. This was noted in individual captions with the images, but a general caption for only one of the images was applied this slideshow, which I did not load. I hope that clears things up a little.

Confused, it isn't clear to me if your comment is meant to enlighten, amuse, or something else. Please be so kind as to clarify your intent.

Oops, I meant there were NO protest signs. Sorry for more confusion.

Well at least we know it isn't the other Methodist church in town, since there are protest signs being displayed.

The pastor who is pictured in Frame #7 of this slide presentation IS the Rev Jon Dumpys, pastor at United Lutheran Church in Oak Park.

This isn't the United Luthern Church. This is First United Methodist Church of Oak Park.
