In February of 2007 when Crossings Faith Community opened in Knoxville, Jon Ferguson, a noted Pastor from Naperville arranged for Eli’s Cheesecake to be delivered to Pastor Mark Nelson and the founding members of the congregation.

We were delighted to see Eli’s be part of this important community initiative in Knoxville and have made it a point to see that Eli’s Cheesecake has been served thereafter on the Anniversary, or as it is know, “Cheesecake Sunday.”

Recently we were delighted to have Pastor Mark and the Leadership Team from Crossings visit us when they were in Chicago for training and community service.

Right before visiting Eli’s, they had lunch at one of our customers, Lou Malnati’s Pizza in North Lawndale, a store that was opened by the Malnati Family in response to a request to help the community by the founder of Lawndale Community Church.

We were delighted to enjoy our Cheesecake with them under the Big Top and to introduce some of our Best People (Jeff Anderson, Aurelio Ayala, Elias Kasongo and Jeff Anderson) to explain the love and care that we give every Cheesecake & Dessert as well as the impact that Eli’s works to have in the community.
