2022 Elburn Days Parade: Heidi Anderson and Cathy Whiteside are organizing a float for the parade on August 19, 2022, to represent Grace Church.

Grace has a collection box for used glasses in the Gathering Room. Those donations are then passed on to the Elburn Lions. Please contact Heidi Anderson (630/746-5073) or Cathy Whiteside (630/605-1096). Thank you in advance for any help you can give us with this project.  Read More
