What’s my next step? That is one of the best questions you can ask at Glen Ellyn Bible Church. Your next step is a choice to take an active role discovering where Jesus is inviting you to follow.
attend Sunday Service
Showing up on a Sunday and listening to practical teaching is an essential element to a growing relationship with Jesus. This is the best first step to get connected to the community at Glen Ellyn Bible Church. Making this a regular part of your life will help you grow in community and learn about who God is, His intent for the world, and the role you play in that story.
attend a community dinner
How can I find more meaningful relationships here? That question has been asked in some fashion by almost every person attending this church. Whether you consider yourself a newbie or a veteran of church, Sunday is best experienced in the context of friendships. Community Dinners are an evening with a few families eating dinner together and sharing in lively conversation. Those shared experiences and new friendship will help create an even better Sunday morning. If you’d like to experience church with growing relationships register for an upcoming Community Dinner.
Join A SMALL GROUP
Faith comes most alive in intentional community. This requires us to take a next step, moving beyond showing up and listening on Sundays. Small groups are the primary vehicle for us to consider how the Sunday lesson will be acted out in our lives. Consider taking this necessary step in your own growth, by signing-up to join a small group. New groups start each October and February. To learn more CLICK HERE.

GIVE TO THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH
Giving to the local church is an act of worship, as it is a unique expression of gratitude to God. When we give, we celebrate all that God has given us, especially His incredible gift of forgiveness made available to all through faith in His son Jesus. God owns everything. When we give, we are simply giving back of portion of what He has entrusted to us.
