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.

2016 Charitable Christmas Collections

In our front lobby during this past holiday season, we collected donations for 4 very worthy causes.  With your very generous support, we were able to help many others.  Following is a recap of our efforts

Hat & Mitten Tree

Thanks to all who contributed, planned, marketed, and prayed for our amazing Hat and Mitten Tree!  142 items were delivered to the Elk Grove Township Day Care Center on December 20!  Your efforts will help keep some youngsters warm this winter season. 


Merry Christmas, Christus Victor Tree

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to the Christus Victor Giving Tree this past holiday season.  Your generous gifts will help us to reach out into the community and continue our mission of Making Christ Known.


Adopt a Family Tree

Thank you to everyone who helped us fulfill the wishes of 2 deserving families here in Elk Grove Village.  All of the tags containing the wishes of the children of these families were taken from the tree and fulfilled.  All of them!  God bless you!

This year, the Adopt a Family Tree supported the Cervantes family, as well as a family who suffered a house fire just before Thanksgiving.  Both families have students that attend Elk Grove Village schools.

Families in Need Gift Box

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed gift cards and monetary donations to our Families in Need Gift Box.  This year, we were able to provide gift cards, toys and other gifts (provided by the Boy Scouts), and complete meals, each feeding 6 to 8 adults (donated by Jewel) to 18 local families!
