Our Prayer: “God, may Your Kingdom come; may Your will be done [in Elgin] as it is in Heaven.” Matthew 6:10
Launched in 2011, this vision was supported by over a dozen Pastors/Churched to have FREE services in an environment of fun and faith to reach and touch as many as are able to be served. The number of people served at each LoveElgin outreach is between 500 to 3,000 family units. We offer, when available, a lunch to all clients and volunteers, along with incredible services across every site and campuses across the Elgin area (based on date and availability).
Pastor Jeorge Holmes, a native of Elgin, was prayerful, building relationships with area Pastors and businesses, to understand the ‘needs’ represented in our communities. He became the catalyst and vision caster and continues to serve as lead coordinator. LoveElgin operates under the umbrella of many local churches and Pastors in Elgin along with partnering with Touched Twice United, a 501(c)(3) organization in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
