Who we are

We are one church with seven locations in the Chicago area.

Just like a physical orchard, we’re all about roots, life and fruit at The Orchard.

We dig our ROOTS deep into the Word of Christ in our worship services.
We find LIFE in Jesus Christ and share that life together in LIFE Groups.
We bear FRUIT for Christ through praying, giving, serving and inviting.

At Arlington Heights, you’ll find that the Bible is at the center of all we do. We believe Jesus is worth following and want you to find joy in following Him too.

We exist to glorify God by multiplying God-centered, Christ-exalting, world-transforming believers through the Gospel in the greater Chicago area and around the world.

Tuesday evenings, during the school year

Awana, our mid-week program, is a ministry committed to reaching boys and girls with the gospel of Jesus Christ and training them to serve Him. Awana clubs are a place where children 3-years-old to 5th grade can play games, memorize Bible verses and learn Bible lessons. We meet during the school year. Our four clubs are:

Cubbies (3 & 4-year-olds)
Sparks (kindergarten to 2nd grade)
T&T Girls (3rd to 5th grade girls)
T&T Boys (3rd to 5th grade boys)

Given these unprecedented times, we are offering a second option of Awana this year called "Awana at Home."

Register for Awana at Home here:

History of The Orchard Arlington Heights Church

We've been gathering together on Sundays for over 60 years. Started in 1953 with 43 people meeting in the auditorium of North School in Arlington Heights, Illinois, we’ve expanded to more than 3,000 people in six locations in the Chicago area.

A few years ago, in October 2015, we saw the urgent need for more churches here and in the Balkan region of Europe to thrive and set to making that a reality through our Thrive Campaign. Since that time we renovated our Arlington Heights congregation, opened our Northfield and Chicago congregations, are about to open our Vernon Hills congregation and sent Kujtim and Lauren Rushiti to Albania to help plant Durres Evangelical Church. The Thrive Campaign ends December 31, 2020.   Edit
