Why We Give...


Our Giving Helps Our Church

Our church depends on the generous donations of treasure, time and talents of our members to keep our doors open and our lights on. Members help with property maintenance, church accounting and office work, visiting the sick and elderly, and in many more ways.


Our Giving Helps Our Kids

Our church believes in investing in our kids. We have helped our youth attend gatherings ranging from as close to our hometown of Mount Prospect to the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering in New Orleans.


We also encourage members to become active in the lives of the youth. Members are encouraged to teach Sunday school as well as to attend youth group functions. We also believe in the power of mentoring which is why every youth that our church confirms goes through a mentorship experience with an adult in the church.


Our Giving Helps Our World

In addition to working in the community, our church also gives a tithe to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. This money goes to spread the word of Christ all around the world!


We have also recently sponsored two international seminary students to help them continue their education at Lutheran School of Theology Chicago before graduating and spreading the good news in their home countries.
