The Caregiving Center depends on the generous support of gifts made to Glen Ellyn Bible Church. At Glen Ellyn Bible Church, we believe that God owns everything; when we give, we are simply giving back a portion of what He has entrusted to us. We also believe He has called us to show (e.g. caring for those with physical needs) and share (i.e. caring for those with spiritual needs) the love of Jesus. One vehicle through which we strive to do this is the Caregiving Center. To financially support this effort online, simply click the link below. Or visit our Giving Page for information on additional ways to give.
