From November 5 through December 3, we celebrate our annual Holiday Stocking Drive, filling stockings with a specific list of items in need that are distributed by The Night Ministry, a Chicago-based organization founded 45 years ago by a UCC minister providing human connection, housing support, and health care to those who are unhoused or experiencing poverty.
November brings many great opportunities to be involved with sharing and caring for each other and our surrounding community. This is just a small sampling of what we are involved in each month.
Ivanhoe members enthusiastically support The Night Ministry, serving Chicago's homeless community. Throughout the year, members volunteer at The Crib, and several times a year, we hold collection drives for things sorely needed.
Ivanhoe Congregational Church brings you many ways become involved and enjoy the camaraderie of your church family. From Adult Education to Trunk or Treat, fun and companionship exists for everybody in the whole family.
UPDATE - PADS 2023/2024 season on hold - Please read for further information.

We had a great turnout as we helped package food for the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
August will be here before we know it, and we are calling all our Ivanhoe superheroes, young and old, to join us at this year at VBS for "Hero Hotline," where we will gather to learn how we can be superheroes in our church, in our community, and in our world!
