Welcome to the new Northern Illinois Synod website
Thank you for your patience as more information is added.

The unveiling of the new website is a little premature because the old site crashed, so this is still a little drafty and things are missing. We are working hard to get everything up to date. Please contact Dn Karin Graddy if you cannot find something you need.
