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.


Every Monday, members of Christus Victor meet to work quietly and diligently to create beautiful quilts.  Other members take home squares to work on at home during their free time.  These quilts, so lovingly assembled,have gone further around the world than ever before to Lebanon & Iraq for Syrian refugees! These dedicated sewers have made 100’s of quilts!


Beginning September 15, you may purchase raffle tickets ($1 each or 6 for $5) for your chance to win one of these amazing, handmade quilts.  Winners will be drawn after the 10:45 Service on Sunday, September 29th. The quilts that will be raffled will be on display for you to see and tickets may be purchased after all of our services.  If you are interested in purchasing raffle tickets but unable to make it to service, please call the office at 847-437-2666. 

Beginning on September 14/15, this year's quilts will be on display in the Welcome Center.  They will received a special blessing on the weekend of September 28/29.  Then they will be boxed up and sent on their way to help people in need throughout the world.

If you have never had the pleasure of seeing any of these amazing quilts, below are some photos of the beautiful quilts they have made in previous years.  Christus Victor truly does have dedicated, gifted, and giving members.
