Bible Study at Wayside Cross in Elgin
Vacation Bible School: Each July we gather children from around the Northwest suburbs in order to spread the Gospel to our children. Jesus said, “Allow the little children to come to me… of such is the Kingdom of heaven.”
Missions: At present, our church’s missions budget is over $60,000 a year, supporting 3 mission agencies and 21 missionaries at home and around the world. Out of the 21 missionaries we support, more than half (11) have been sent out of our church.
Evangelism: Every third Saturday of the month we have our evangelism teams. We begin at the church with a time of planning and prayer at 10am, and then we will go out for evangelism at 10:15am. We enjoy distributing flyers, making visits, and doing one-on-one evangelism. Check the calendar for specific dates.
Spanish Church (Iglesia Esperanza): The mission fields of the world have come to us! We are planting an entirely hispanic congregation right here among our own congregation. Please pray God will pour out His grace on those who need Christ.
Meals for the Sick: What a joy to bring those who are suffering a warm meal in time of need.
Book Store, Free Store, Library, and Literature ministry: Keeping the congregation stocked with godly books and literature is another way we try to “equip the saints for the work of ministry”.
Special Events: We have various special events throughout the year that allow for opportunities of fellowship and Bible teaching, including our Bible Conference, Family Harvest Fellowship (in the Fall), Christmas Luncheon, and our annual Church Picnic.
