DEFYING ADVERSITY

Born Tatiana Olegovna Kirillova, Jessica Long was abandoned as an infant in a Siberian orphanage. Due to a rare condition, her lower legs were amputated just five months later. Through endless perseverance, Jessica competed in her first Paralympic Games as 12 years old. Now, she holds multiple world records, owns 29 Paralympic Games medals, and claims more than 50 championships. She has made such an impact that her story was famously portrayed in a Toyota ad that ran during the Summer Olympics and Super Bowl.

2022 YEAR-END GIFT

As part of Christ Community’s year-long focus on Faith at Work, at least 70 percent of the 2022 year-end gift will be given to long-term, trusted partners in Bangladesh, Nicaragua, and Sierra Leone to help those in abject poverty change their family trajectory through meaningful work.

START 2023 WITH YOUR CHURCH FAMILY

Start 2023 with a special event at all campuses that can only be called "Jim Nicodem's Rockin' New Year's Day." In one service at each campus on January 1 (10am at St. Charles/South Elgin), we will greet the new year with fun, food, competition, communion, games, giveaways, and a message by Streamwood Campus Pastor Cory Shumate (Christ Community's own Ryan Seacrest?). Want to win your campus the Ultimate Upgrade for the first teaching series of 2023?
