  Basic Info  
We're Glad You're Here.

We know it can be difficult to ask for help. So, we're hoping to make things a little easier. Guests who come to our church are met with kindness by a volunteer who looks forward to becoming acquainted with each person who comes in.

We are about relationships and are ready to listen to your story. 

If you come for the first time, we know things can be a little confusing. Which door do you enter? Where do you go when you're inside? What to do once you're with the volunteer? We've made a very basic video that will hopefully help some of those first time jitters.
 
 
Our Hours
We are open Mondays (except Federal Holidays) from 10am to 1pm and 4pm to 6pm.
Starting in November, our 4pm to 6pm Monday shift will only be availble on the last Monday of the month.



Food Pantry Donations
It's wonderful when we receive donations for the food pantry. As you may already know, we serve more than 1,000 families each year; so, we move a lot of food into the hands of those in need. If you'd like to make a donation, you can drop-off food during our hours or mail a check to our address:
9320 W US HWY 150
Edwards, IL 61528


If you run into a great deal at a grocery store, do post to Facebook and use the phrase "Christ Alive! Community Church" so that our church is tagged. In this way, you can share with others about deals that you're finding.

Blessings to those who staff the pantry, those who donate, those who pray for our guests, and those who come to receive food from the pantry! Shari Dinkins
