Brief Church history:
The congregation started in 1962 in the city of Chicago. One of our pastors today is Harry Matviiv. The congregation moved to Bensenville in 1982 and built their church at 644 South John Street. The church building had to undergo many construction changes and many designs. In 2002 a change needed to be made in order to fit the growing chior attendance, so the church redesigned the stage area of the sanctuary. In 2003, plans were made to expand the church due to the growing congregation. On Sept 7th, 2004 expansion construction of the church begun, with many changes that were made during the construction period, completion was set back. With God's help and the help from our brothers and sisters construction of the redesigned and expanded church building was completed in November of 2009.
