Chicago Servant Trip

 

Day2_19

We are going back to Chicago this summer!!

June 19-26 Friends in Faith will be traveling to Chicago for our Summer Servant Trip! We will be serving with many different service agencies in the area, and taking part in the 26th Annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-Thon. We are so excited to go back to Chicago and participate in this amazing event again. Throughout the Serve-a-Thon we will be meeting in Soldier Field, being sent out into the community, working alongside residents from Chicago, and coming back together for an outdoor celebration. As a group, we will also be exploring the city and taking in some of the fun sites of Chicago and other cities during our travels.
