Christus Victor

Making Christ Known

We are an Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) congregation growing in the likeness of Christ by:

Worshiping, praying, and studying God’s word;
Being together with other people; and
Acting in faith through words and deeds both inside and outside our church walls.

2017 Charitable Christmas Collections

In our front lobby during this holiday season, we will be collecting for 3 very worthy causes.  With your very generous support, we will be able to help many others.  Following is a listing of our donation collections:

Hat & Mitten Tree

Donating to the Hat & Mitten Tree is very simple.  Simply bring hats, scarves, gloves, and mittens—any size—and hang them on the tree just outside the Sanctuary doors.   These items will then be donated to the families in Elk Grove Village and surrounding communities via the Elk Grove Township Day Care Center.  Kid and adult-sized items are welcomed! 

Deadline for contributions: December 17

 Help us bring a little extra warmth to the community this Advent season!

Merry Christmas, Christus Victor Tree

This giving tree is decorated with envelopes, each one labeled with gifts needed by Christus Victor and its many ministries.  All you have to do is choose an envelope, place cash or a check in the envelope, fill out the front of the envelope, and place it in the offering plate.

We give gifts to people that we love because we want to let them know how much we appreciate and love them.  Why not put Christus Victor at the top of your gift list?

Families in Need Giving Box

During the holiday season, our church is often called upon to help families in need—some are within our congregation and many are within our community.  These families have limited income and need a helping hand.

 Contributions of gift cards (Wal-Mart, Target, Jewel, Visa, etc.) or monetary donations to help these families may be dropped off in the wrapped gift box on the counter top in the narthex gathering area. 

 Deadline for contributions:  December 17th
