We hope that these pages will give you a glimpse into our community. Ask the members of the Christian Church of Arlington Heights to describe the church in three words, and you'll get answers like "Warm, Caring, Giving," or "Compassionate, Generous, Christ-centered" and you'll hear the word "Family" used again and again and again.
Ask the members of this community about the moments when they've been proud to be the church, and they'll describe for you moments when they have worked together to meet a need, whether that's the choir blending their voices into a uplifting anthem in worship or our Night Ministry team putting together sandwiches and soup to take into Chicago.
You'll hear stories, too, of moments when this congregation has supported each other through hard times, by sending cards to those who were in the hospital and meals to those who were grieving, and by simply showing up with a smile and story.
And you'll hear the list of ways that we seek to be connected and relevant to the community and the world around us, whether that's through our giving to Week of Compassion (our denomination's relief, refugee, and development mission fund), our collections for the local food pantry, or our conversations about current events.
Ask the members of this congregation what they have to say to you, and hear, quite simply:
You are welcome in this place.
