Welcome to Christ Presbyterian Church!

We are a hope-filled community of people who have found their true home in the grace of  Jesus Christ. We come from many different cultures and experiences, but we are United by Christ’s Love through the power of the Holy Spirit to be a family of faith, seeking to love one another and our neighbors every day of our lives.

We know we are not perfect, but we belong to God and to one another, and that is enough to make us bold. As we worship and study the sacred Scriptures together, we Grow deeper in our trust for the good, merciful and faithful God who makes the impossible possible. God is on a mission to transform our broken world, and it is our joy to be a part of it! So following the example of Jesus, who came not be served but to Serve, we offer our time, talents, and treasure to work for peace, justice, and healing in our local community and beyond.

If you are looking for a community that will laugh with you, cry with you, pray with you, ask hard questions with you, we are here! If you are curious about what it means to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ, let us be your companions on the journey! If you have a deep longing to see the will of God done on earth as it is in heaven, work with us! No matter who you are and where you come from, there is room for you among us. Join us for worship at 9:30 am on Sundays or contact us with any questions your may have. We will be delighted to hear from you!

Until we meet, Pastor Lisa and the members and friends of Christ Presbyterian Church.

This has been a week of great sadness for our church, now adding the earthly loss of our beloved Steve Njoka. Steve blessed us with his Scripture reading during services and his faithful testimony of how God continued to be with him no matter what. In the promise of faith, we know that Steve is safe in the arms of the Savior. Please keep his sister Mary Njoka, his extended family, and all who loved and cared for Steve in your prayers. If you would like to make a donation for Steve's funeral expenses (he desired to be buried in Cameroon) you can get in contact with Mary directly or send a message to the church through this page to receive her contact information. ...

It is with a very sad heart that we share the news that Carl Leidberg of Hanover Park, IL went to be with the Lord last night. He had been suffering of pneumonia and COVID at St. Joseph's hospital in Elgin, which proved to be too much for his body.

Carl attended Christ Presbyterian Church faithfully for many years, as well as participated in services and events of many other Christian churches around the area. Many were a blessing to him in his later years, providing rides and meals to keep his life as full as ever. He was proud to say he was a born again Christian and asked all who came close if they could see Jesus in his eye. In the promise of faith, we know Carl is not suffering now but rejoicing in the glory of his Savior. In this we take comfort.

A virtual opportunity of remembrance is in the works and plans will be communicated in the coming weeks. Please keep his sister Melody and all who loved and supported Carl in your prayers at this time.
