  • 200+ in weekly worship: infants – 97-year-olds, multi-generational, young families and older adults with growing racial diversity.

 

  • We have as many former Catholics as well as life-long Presbyterians.

 

  • Characterized by strong children & youth programs: Nursery, Sunday School, mid-week Logos TOWN for grade-school aged kids, Middle School Youth Fellowship, Senior High Youth Fellowship. We regularly have 165 children in our Vacation Bible School – 2/3 of whom are not from our congregation.

 

  • Two distinct worship services during the school year: 9:00am Traditional (Organ) and 11:15am Praise (Band), and a single 10:00am summer service that combines both styles.

 

  • Emphasis on outreach to those who are hurting in the world. We house the largest food pantry in Elmhurst, regularly staff a PADS site for the homeless in the winter, host the "Run for Hunger 5K," send both adults and youth on mission work trips and support many other causes with our mission dollars.

 

  • Value small groups outside of worship as a profound opportunity for members to create deep bonds with others and grow in their faith. 40% of those in worship on Sunday are in a small group.

 

  • Annual budget (Local Ministry, Mission & mortgage) = $620,000.
