Meet the new editor of Our Common Ministry

natalie beglenLet me introduce myself as you’ll probably be hearing from me soon asking (hopefully not begging!) for news and articles to include in Our Common Ministry newsletter.

My name is Natalie Beglen and I’m excited to serve as your new Managing Editor. I hope to continue the mission of this newsletter to help connect the 100 plus church congregations and share news, information and advice amongst the churches and foster an even better sense of community.

My family and I have been active members of La Grange First for over 20 years. I have served as a deacon and was an active member on the Marketing & Communications and Mission & Outreach committees. I am currently a member of one of our church’s weekly small groups for women as well as the monthly book club.

I have lived in the Chicago area for almost my entire life; growing up in Oak Park (full disclosure – as a Lutheran!). I married my husband Greg nearly 25 years ago and together we have a son and daughter who are currently away at college. Some other ‘important’ facts about me:

Sweet vs. Salty: Salty
Sox vs. Cubs: Cubs
Book vs. Kindle: Book
Cat vs. Dog: Cat
Coke vs. Pepsi: Neither, actually a Fresca fan
Microsoft vs. Apple: Microsoft

I look forward to receiving updates on the events and news happening at your church (simply email me at: Please also add me to the distribution list for your newsletter. Together, we can learn from each other and grow together as a family in faith. Thank you.
