We are a very outreach oriented church and love to serve our community. Our focus for this week will be to serve various outreach ministries in Chicago and the west suburbs. Our church is committed to helping those who are serving to have the resources and people power to see their ministries thrive!
You will be sleeping at our church. You will be sleeping in classrooms with carpeted cement floors. We do have A/C. We will be partnering with the local school (1 block walk) to use their locker rooms for showers. (We also have two showers onsite in case of emergences or special requirements).
You will want to bring something to sleep on (air-matress or camping pad) so you are not on the hard floor.
We have a great youth room with plenty of games for relaxing fun at the end of the day!
We will be heading to downtown Chicago to hang out at a beach. From this beach you would have the opportunity to walk to Navy Pier, and also to Millennium Park. There are amazing places to visit and to eat at in the area it is sure to be a fun day!
