Don't miss the ONE Campaign & Bread for the World!

Our upcoming up/rooted gathering on Monday, April 23rd is a really big deal. So big, in fact, that we've decided to offer it as a collective gathering of all the up/rooted branches. Not north, west, or south - just up/rooted. That's how big this is.

What's so big about it? I'm glad you asked. We've invited Annie Gill-Bloyer from Bread for the World and the ONE Campaign to join us and speak to us about how we can all be involved in the fight against global AIDS and extreme poverty. Over a billion people still live on less than a dollar a day, and millions are dying of the AIDS pandemic every year. These are issues that we can't afford to ignore as people who claim to follow the risen Christ. And you can't afford to miss this presentation if you want to learn more about the issues and more specifically about how to get involved.

In an effort to make this gathering as accessible to as many as possible, we've gotten permission to meet at Northern Seminary on Butterfield Rd. in Lombard, conveniently located off of I-88 & I-355. The presentation will be in the chapel at Kern Hall at 7pm.

Even if you rarely make it out to up/rooted gatherings, I hope you make it to this one. See you there!
