Chicago–8th Grade Mission Trip

In the World


In June, we will send a group of 8th grade students to do ministry in Chicago. This is a transitional trip for our 8th graders as they move from middle school into high school. Our team will help meet the needs of Chicago’s people by partnering with local ministries that are working with children, the elderly, and those who are homeless. Along with getting to know wonderful community friends, they may have the opportunity to serve at a food pantry, kids’ organization, or at an outdoor educational garden.

LOCATION: Chicago, Illinois
FOR: 8th grade students
DATES: June 16-21, 2019
COST: $150 per student
INFORMATION MEETING: Sunday, May 19, for those registered

*This trip is currently full. Please email Myra Van Zee to get your name added to the waiting list.

Use Your Gifts

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  —Ephesians 2:10

What are the good works God has prepared for you to DO?  Where has He called you to GO?  How can we (Third Church) equip and prepare you to be an everyday missionary in the places you live and work?  We would like to partner with you as the Holy Spirit empowers you to do good works with the gifts He has given you. 

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. —1 Peter 4:10
