About: Our Connections
The Evangelical Covenant Church of Elgin belongs to the Evangelical Covenant Church, a denomination of over 800 congregations in the United States and Canada. (For information on the denomination, go to www.covchurch.org). It is a member of the International Federation of Free Evangelical Churches. Elgin Covenant belongs to the Central Conference, a region of over 100 sister congregations in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Missouri (www.centralconf.org).
About: Being Multi-generational
We are a multi-generational congregation that gathers for one main worship at 10:30 on Sunday mornings. To accommodate the needs of human beings across the span of life, we have improved our children’s and nursery ministry spaces, and renovated a wheelchair-friendly restroom. In fall 2012 we completed a ramped entrance. Assisted listening devices are available for our worship services.
Our multi-generational priority is also seen in the many fellowship and ministry activities that happen here on a weekly and monthly basis:
- Nursery and Children’s Church every Sunday mornin
- High School outreach breakfast Wednesday mornings during the school year.
- Adult Sunday School every Sunday morning,
- Peace Quest Wednesdays at 5:30 (when $2 dinner is scheduled)
- Adult choir rehearsal Wednesday evening (October to May),
- Women’s Bible Study Tuesday afternoon,
- Flannel Shirt Club (Men’s Group) first Tuesdays
- All Family $2/plate dinner, Wednesdays, 6 PM. RSVP at (847) 888-2302.
If you have any questions about these ministries, please call the church at (847) 888-2302.
We will try to keep this website’s calendar up-to-date! Some programs follow the school calendar, others are year-round. It never hurts to call in advance to make sure the program you are interested in is running that week.
