Twenty for Twenty

It’s a celebration!

Easter 2018 marks the 20th Anniversary of the founding of United in Faith Lutheran Church. In acknowledgement and thanksgiving for these 20 years, United in Faith has a Vision of offering 20 service projects to the community—our gift to the community. We feel the call to bless local organizations and to be visible signs of God’s grace to those around us. Our timeline is from about October 2017 - October 2018. The completion of these projects will culminate in a spectacular Anniversary Party!

We have begun a list of 10 organizations we hope to serve. They are: Lydia Home, New Horizon Center, Youth Outreach Services, Central Baptist Home, National Night Out/Chicago Organization, Portage Park Farmers’ Market, & Wright College’s Back-To-School Event. We are also: 1) requesting suggestions of an additional 10 organizations we can consider serving; 2) for a volunteer to be the point person for each project, and 3) for participants to help carry out each project. Please prayerfully consider how you can contribute your time and talents to the success of this vision. Please SIGN-UP using the sheet on the table outside the sanctuary!
