Glendale Heights - Adventist GlenOaks Hospital is proud to sponsor a community breakfast highlighting the 59th annual National Day of Prayer. Naperville resident the Rev. Eugene H. Winkler, interim pastor of University Church of Chicago, will give the keynote address. This is the 11th year Adventist GlenOaks is sponsoring the event along with other community groups.
