The Mission Statement of First Congregational United Church of Christ Elgin, Illinois is
"Our church is a welcoming, inclusive community of believers in Jesus Christ who lives and share God's unconditional love."
Through the identification and use of our diverse gifts, we fulfill a mission of reconciliation, love, and service. We strive to serve the church, the community and the world, through education and spiritual growth, fellowship, sharing the Word, social responsibility and stewardship.
Through the generosity and thoughtfulness of others, the endowment fund of First Congregational United Church of Christ has some means to help fulfill this mission. In working to be good stewards of this money, we are seeking members and organizations that have programs with a similar philosophy. The Mission Grants Committee will consider programs/projects for grants which are administered by either religious or secular organizations. We ask that the programs/projects relate to our focus issues for the current year.
