We often include a segment of our weekend worship hours entitled “From The congregation” in which someone in our church family will share a short story concerning their spiritual journey.


Mexico Missions Trip 2016

By Brent Steinke on July 11, 2016

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…”  This is a command from Jesus to take action outside of our own groups and peoples.  Jesus calls his people to think globally and to think outside the four walls of their homes and local church.

From August 3-8, Bloomingdale Church is sending 11 people to Guadalajara Mexico to serve alongside Dan and Amber Marcello. 11182027_10153200493883670_3889210652505660824_nThe team will run a Day Camp for four different churches in the area. This will include clown skits, music, and a presentation of the good news of Jesus.

The team has been meeting monthly since January to prepare for this trip, all the while praying with one another. The team would love for you to come alongside them in prayer as they go into the world to join in the work that God is already doing.

Meet R.J. (Raymond) Ziecina, our summer Media Intern

By Media Intern on June 28, 2016


Hello, my name is R.J. (Raymond) Ziecina. I am interning under Christopher Steinke as a Media Intern this summer.  I was born and raised in Glendale Heights just a few blocks from the church and have been attending Bloomingdale Church most of my life.

This fall I will be a senior at Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) Marion, Indiana. I am majoring in Christian Worship with a focus in Church Media.

I have had an interest in technology for most of my life, which has led me to have many opportunities such as volunteering with the technology in a few churches. I have attended Christian media conferences and also work with IWU’s TV station.  

Meet Evan Jones, our summer Youth Intern

By Nate Kugel on April 26, 2016

Evan Jones

Hello there! My name is Evan Jones.  I am interning under Nate this summer as a Youth Intern. I’m originally from Toronto, Canada, so feel free to poke fun of my accent ‘eh’!

Currently, I am going into my senior year at Moody Bible Institute in downtown Chicago, which is where I met my wonderful fiancee! Her name is Sarah, and I hope you’ll be seeing her around a few times this summer. I am very much looking forward to being part of Bloomingdale, and am so excited to get to know as many people as possible!

Sometimes I have a serious, thoughtful side, and other times my wilder, playful side comes out. I love some academic pursuits – reading, writing.  I also love sports, hiking, biking and other outdoors stuff. Also, if are ever hungry, stop by the brown house to see what I’m cooking – another hobby of mine. Looking forward to getting to know you more this summer!
