Elgin City Groups


Gagliardi City Group

Elgin - Thursdays @ 6:30pm

Mark and I first met in high school many years ago.  Life took us on different paths; each getting married and raising our families.  When our marriages ended in divorce, God brought us both individually to the same church.  After 37 years God sovereignly put our paths together at this church in April 2014, and we were married in April 2015.

God in his goodness led us to City of Joy Church in March of this year where we’ve had the privilege of being on the core leadership team, witnessing firsthand how God plants and grows his church.  We are looking forward to meeting and opening our house up to our neighbors and watching all that God wants to do here in Elgin.

Gierke Group

Elgin - Fridays @ 6:00

We were married in 2010 and have been following Jesus since our mid twenties. Todd is a Chicago area native, while Gustava was born and raised in Sweden. God has blessed us with 3 children, and as we outgrew our condo God led us out to Elgin in 2016. Our home is open to everyone, we would love to have you join us as we eat, hangout, and talk about Jesus!
