Recent Trip Highlights: 

On July 18-21st, our Youth Ministries students & adult volunteers went on their 1st-ever "Service Festival Weekend" - a 4-day event consisting of back-to-back days of community outreach & serving opportunities.  Throughout this experience, students volunteered with the Youth & Family Center of McHenry County, Feed My Starving Children, Share Our Spare in Chicago, & by walking with our church float in the McHenry Fiesta Days Parade!

On Sunday, July 28th, some of our students even helped lead worship, as they shared their highlights & key takeaways from their "Service Festival Weekend" experiences.  The message that weekend focused on how even though students have trudged through quite a difficult year so far - with losses, heartaches, & pressures surrounding them on a regular basis - God can still use hurting people, to give hope.  The video recap linked above reiterates this message.

Thank you to everyone who has shown us support, encouragement, & has donated their resources & time into our Youth Ministries.  We thank God for you, & for what he's continuing to shape together!
