In Community From Cornfields, the little booklet that keeps on giving, there were two pages devoted to the churches of Hoffman Estates. Rather than photos, drawings were inserted of all of the church buildings in existence at the time.

Two other churches had been formed but did not yet have buildings. They were Community Covenant Church, which was meeting in Blackhawk School at the intersection of Illinois Boulevard and Schaumburg Road, and Highlands Baptist Church whose location was 223 Northview Lane. Their congregation met in Hillcrest School.

The drawings of the church buildings are below. As a small local history quiz, please let me know in the comments below or in an email what the name of the churches are.

Number 1:

Number 2:

Number 3:

Number 4:

Number 5:

Number 6:

Number 7:

Number 8:

Number 9:

Number 10:

As correct answers are sent in, I will switch out the number with the name of the church. Thank you for playing Hoffman Estates Church Trivia!
