What Is LoveElgin.org2021?
Love Elgin Day is a vision of seeing the body of Christ use every gift, talent and resource to demonstrate the incredible love God has for humanity. Although we value the times of worship on Saturdays and Sunday along with Wednesday night ministries that seek to disciple and grow people in their faith in Christ – the VISION is to see Christ-followers come together, reach their cities for Christ, and send the message to the world that the body of Christ can and will unite and impact our world for Jesus Christ.
In this local setting, we are a Christ-centered outreach, across the city of Elgin and specifically on Judson Universitys Campus, demonstrating the love of God to all people who have genuine felt-needs, economic challenges, and spiritual concerns. Imagine: local churches working together, across denominational lines, to express the grace and love of God in as many tangible ways as we possibly can!

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 fun-filled, freebie-filled, faith-filled event will be held on the Campus of Judson University Saturday (11/13) and Sunday (11/14). Dentistry/Optometry (Sat/Sun, 6:30am-4:30pm) and all other services (Sat/Sun, 1-5pm). The number of people served at each LoveElgin varies but we have seen upwards of 1000 households which represents up 1500-3000 people touched. When available, we seek to offer a lunch to all clients/guests and volunteers, along with incredible services across the Judson Campus. We can’t even begin to count how many boxes of groceries and bags filled with clothing that go home from LoveElgin.org. And, just like the grace of God for every one of us, all of it is free!
Pastor Jeorge Holmes, a native of Elgin, birthed this ministry, along with a group of prayerful Pastors who joined together to UNITE in the name if Jesus. Pastor Holmes serves as the Lead Catalyst and Visionary and works with incredible leaders, in each area/service, to bring our best to guests in need. LoveElgin.org 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.
