For current 6th-8th graders
June, 10-15, 2018
A week of urban mission at the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago, IL. We will be serving along different non-profits in the area, working with issues such as food safety, homelessness, poverty, education, and community development, under the lens of faith and justice. This experience requires stepping out of our comfort zone to explore what faith in action really means. Our youth will explore diverse city neighborhoods while performing valuable hands-on service and reflecting on God, faith, and the Christian call to justice.
We will fly to Chicago on Sunday, June 10th right after being commissioned at the 10 a.m. Sanctuary worship service. We will also have time to explore the Windy City, including a boat tour, Navy Pier, the Chicago Bean and other landmarks during our time there.
Departure: Sunday, June 10 – Meet at 10:30 am, attend service together for commission. Departure to the airport all together after church.
Return: Friday, June 15, 9:46 pm – Pick up directly at airport
