Northern Illinois Conference Churches

Click here enter the NIC interactive google map. Churches are marked by a pin with a district color code: Aurora = Blue, Chicago NW = Orange, Chicago So = Yellow, DeKalb = Green, Elgin = Red, Rockford = Purple. You can select or deselect districts to view by checking or unchecking the box on the left side of the map. To find a church, type the city or a word from the name (like Trinity) in the search box, and you will get a list of churches in the map that have that word. When you click on a pin it will tell you the name of the church at that location, the address of the church, the URL to their website, if available.
