North Park Seminary intern Luke Johnson was so awesome as our youth director we convinced him to stay with us through the summer even after his graduation. Now the summer is ending and he and his wife Kelly are moving on. The two most EXTREME ultimate frisbee players I have ever met are going to be missed at Elgin Covenant. Thank you, Luke, for the memories. And by the way, thank you for getting this website launched, too!
We had not posted the search to this website because we wanted to give our partnering seminary the first opportunity to place a candidate. Now we are opening up the search and publicizing it. For a job description, please go to the “Staff Page.” Pray for the church as we look for that next special person who can recognize the opportunity here, with a high school of 2000 students right next door. I’m looking forward to the next interview! –Pastor Jonathan
Baseball Night Rained Out
Over thirty people of all ages at our church signed up for the “All Faiths Night” baseball game August 8th between the Kane County Cougars and the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. Unfortunately a series of cloud bursts moving through the area in the afternoon had us cancel our trip, and sure enough, the game was postponed. Whether or not we try to make up the date with the Cougars is tbd, but we are overjoyed to know that the people of our church were interested in getting together for this multi-generational event.
