It's More Than a Roof!
Eden United Church of Christ is a 107-year old pillar of the Jefferson Park neighborhood of Chicago, founded in 1914 by Volga German immigrants from Russia. Enrollment in the National Register of Historic Places is underway.
You'll learn more at this site on why this Capital Campaign is about "more than a roof." Over the last decade we've moved from being a longstanding pillar of the community to being an active partner serving the community. Our sacred space has nurtured generations in faith and family tradition. As we share God's building with Jefferson Park, and engage in news ways beyond our building, we're providing neighborhood sanctuary.
As we invest in the future we build on the heritage of the past, acknowledging all the ways—known and unknown—the people formed here have been Eden ambassadors of faith and faithfulness to the surrounding world.
