We understand that visiting a church for the first time can be a daunting experience. To help make your first time at Glen Ellyn Bible Church a great experience we’ve created this page to help explain some things that we think are important for your first time with us. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Glen Ellyn Bible Church is a place for people just like you, your friends and your family. We are here to help you in any way we can. We make this offer because the God we worship and serve cares about people. He cares about you.
From the worship services (we have two each Sunday morning) to the Sunday-school classes (for all ages) to student groups and small groups—everything we do is to help people walk the journey of life. Presently about 600 people attend the worship services. Approximately 125 junior and senior high students count GEBC as their church home. The children’s ministry serves over 200 kids.

What to Expect
We love music at Glen Ellyn Bible and each weekend we use a variety of different creative elements to help us engage in worship together.
Biblically Based Teaching
Our teaching time is centered around the Bible. We open God’s word each week and work to apply it to our lives today in relevant ways.
Come as you are! There are no expectations at Glen Ellyn Bible Church for you to look or dress a certain way, all are welcome!

NURSERY WING (INFANTS AND TODDLERS)
Service Hours: 9:00/10:30 a.m. (ages 0 – 2 years by September 1, 2016)
A caring and loving environment is found in all our nursery areas. Here you will find rooms full of the youngest among us, experiencing the love of God through the interaction of dedicated volunteers as they meet the physical and emotional needs of the children. Every activity, whether diaper changing, feeding, rocking or playing, is all done with the goal of keeping your children safe and loved.
PRESCHOOL & KINDERGARTEN WING
Service Hours: 9:00/10:30 a.m. (3-year-olds – Kindergarten by September 1, 2016)
We invite your child to join us and begin their journey of knowing Jesus and becoming more like Him. Our early childhood area is filled with excitement and wonder for the children. Dedicated storytellers and small group leaders strive to make the people, stories and principles of the Bible captivate the attention of children. This is done through the use of music, drama and storytelling. Instruction is given in a combination of large and small group settings. Our children also spend time connecting with others in activity stations, making crafts, small group discussions and prayer.
Service Hours: 9:00/10:30 a.m.
We know these years provide an opportunity to help children gain a solid foundation for their direction in life. We believe that God has created each of them uniquely with specific abilities and personalities. We also believe our elementary kids can have an active and living faith. Our focus is on helping them commit all of themselves (spirit, soul and body) to the Lord. An emphasis is placed on kids building relationships with teenagers and adults that will facilitate spiritual growth. Worship, group games, storytelling videos, small group discussions and dynamic Bible lessons are some of the elements included.
