weremovingWe wanted to take the opportunity to announce that Elgin City Church is officially moving into the Elgin ArtSpace Loft space! First off, BIG shout out to Blue Box Cafe for hosting our church meetings since January. There has been huge breakthrough in our lives personally and in our ministry because of it. We are so grateful for their generosity and big hearts. We have met many new faces and visitors and have had several people give their lives back to God and join the church all because they saw us meeting at Blue Box Cafe! PRAISE THE LORD!

In a lot of ways, the “box” we were in couldn’t hold us. Seeking out a bigger space and praying for a new location has resulted in a connection with a new event space called Ola la Ijorere, in Elgin, Illinois. Ola la is housed within the commercial space of the Elgin ArtSpace Loft in downtown Elgin. It is a multi-purpose loft suitable for parties and socials. This space offers us a larger place to worship and freedom to expand both in Spirit and in outreach to the Elgin community. Some things we plan to do in our new space include:

 

Launching a new kids ministry called City Kidz
Faith in Art Festival
Releasing the artists in Elgin to express themselves during our worship
Offering our next steps “DNA 101” class the first Sunday of every month

There are great things on the horizon for ECC and the Summer holds great possibilities for us to continue our mission to “Connect the UnConnected” helping people step into a relationship with Jesus and to spread revival fire to those who know Him. Join us EVERY SUNDAY at 11:00 am. The new address is 51 S. Spring Street.
