2023 Annual Giving Commitment

Our 2023 finance campaign is 95% of the way to our goal at this time. This year’s theme is “Reconnect, Renew, and Reach Out.” Our financial gifts make possible the ministries to change lives, transform communities, and renew the church. John Wesley urged us to “earn all you can and save all you can so that you can give all you can.”

A strong and active church allows us to serve others well! Our church is always there for us as well through our children and youth ministries, inspirational music programs, dedicated staff, and most of all, our finest traditions of relishing the glory of God in our lives.

As the church, we are the heart, spirit, and hands of God’s love — and we are putting love into action. As the Finance Committee works on the 2023 church budget requirements, be aware that estimates show we will need a 4% increase in pledges. 

We are very grateful for your continued generosity. A special thank you to all who already turned in your pledge cards. Every pledge and every gift, great or small, helps our church maintain our programs, staff, worship, educational and mission opportunities, and historic building.

Giving Opportunities

We encourage all to give online. If you plan to give regularly this year (weekly, monthly, or quarterly), we encourage you to use the recurring giving option.

You can also give using your phone. Download the Vanco Faith app, the church's electronic giving program or give by texting 630.812.7062.

In-person Worship
We have made the following changes to our policy in response to the recently revised CDC and State of Illinois guidelines:

  • Masks are now optional in the church building and during worship according to recent CDC and State of Illinois Health Department updates. 
  • For those who have not received a complete COVID-19 vaccine yet, wearing a mask is suggested.
  • There will be no tracking method for checking vaccination records. We encourage everyone to become familiar with CDC guidelines and use their best judgment.
  • We are singing during our worship services, however, our Chancel Choir Board voted to continue wearing masks at this time.  

All are welcome!
