Hosted by the local churches and undergirded by the business, professional, government and social services community, Love Elgin Day is an outreach to simply bless Elgin families and individuals who need physical resources and spiritual encouragement. If that’s you, come to Love Elgin Day to be loved!.
Vision and Values
The ministry was launched by Pastor Jeorge Holmes, an Elgin native whose passion it is to reach out in a significant way to hurting people in his hometown. Two of his pastor friends oversee similar outreaches in Wisconsin and California, and Love Elgin Day was modeled after these ministries. Touched Twice United, headquartered in Chippewa Falls, WI, was particularly instrumental in igniting a vision. As Pastor Jeorge has shared the vision with other Christ-followers, local churches of many denominations have come on board. What a thrill it is to see Christ-centered churches praying and working together to show love like Jesus does. And what a blessing to have the business and professional community get behind this project also.
Love Elgin Day offers an opportunity for people to experience the Kingdom of God and see it touching their lives in tangible and even supernatural ways, as the Gospel of Jesus Christ is carried right to the heart and home of every guest served. Our goal is to minister to the spiritual, emotional, physical, mental and financial needs of every person.
This outreach will continue to be a regular event in the community, probably on the last Saturday of April and last Saturday of September every year.
