Decommissioning Service for the LCMS Northern Illinois District Office

A Decommissioning Service will be held June 13, 2022 from 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. for the LCMS Northern Illinois District Office at 2301 S. Wolf Road, Hillside, IL 60162. Refreshments to follow.

The building was originally commissioned June 17, 1979 after the District Office’s relocation from Chicago. We thank God for the generations of ministry and faithful service carried out on the campus and we pray blessings for all individuals who serve our Lord through the LCMS Northern Illinois District.

The the sale of the LCMS Northern Illinois District (NID) office building at 2301 S. Wolf Road, Hillside, Illinois, occurred on Thursday, February 24, 2022. This action was taken as a result of a Task Force on Stewardship of District Resources established out of Resolution 2-07 from the Northern Illinois District 59th Convention.

“The literal NID brick and mortar building on Wolf Road should not represent the district. We must remember and insist it’s the congregations, NID president, BOD and staff that make the District. … but it’s not really about the place. It’s about the MISSION of bringing the Gospel of Christ to the world.” (Task Force on Stewardship of District Resources Report – March 14, 2020)

The new location will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
