The Christian faith has always called us to see needs and do something about them. Glen Ellyn Bible Church has strategically chosen to take on the challenge to “make disciples” through a variety of evangelistic and compassion efforts. OUTREACH is a high priority at Glen Ellyn Bible Church. We empower our church body to develop relationships to demonstrate our faith, live our faith, and share our faith verbally in a community with more need than may meet the eye.

The primary way we serve locally is through our monthly Caregiving Center. The Caregiving Center exists to provide support to the under-resourced in Glen Ellyn and the surrounding towns in an environment of LOVE & DIGNITY. On the third Wednesday of each month, we offer guests a free meal, groceries and other much-needed resources. We are always looking for volunteers to serve at the center. If you are interested please contact us.

More Information
In addition to our monthly Caregiving Center we also support financially, and with volunteers, the following local ministries.
