Our Story

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. (Eccl 4:9)

The Naperville Congregational Church had been meeting at the YMCA and Ellsworth School prior to the completion of their new building at One Bunting Lane. On September 10, 1970, the first worship service was held at the new facility which was located on the corner of Washington and 75th streets in Naperville. It celebrated the continuation of a long history of ministry in the community.

Meanwhile, Pastor R. Kent Hughes and College Church of Wheaton envisioned planting three new churches in the Chicagoland area. The fulfillment of that dream was realized on June 1, 2008, when New Covenant Church was founded. At that time members were holding services on the campus of the local college.

On September 11, 2011, members of what were formerly these two separate churches signed off on combining their resources, leadership and ministries to become the New Covenant Church of Naperville. This merger brought both congregations together as an independent church body at the One Bunting Lane facility.
