Love Chicago will be bringing boots on the ground to serve with People Loving People as they feed and minister to over 200 homeless people in the Westside and Southside Chicago neighborhoods. Part of our serving will be the food prep, so if you like to cook this is your kind of Outreach! Thursday night, we will be cooking and preparing the food. Friday night, we will be delivering the food and the love of Jesus!
PLP will also be doing a Night Walk on Westside and a CTA Evangelism Outreach on the Green Line “L” train.
Hope Church LaGrange Convoy of Hope
It is our pleasure and honor to serve Hope Church with the set-up and flier distribution the week before their Convoy of Hope Outreach in Marquette Park. We will be sending teams throughout the week of Love Chicago, to meet with their leadership, to set up the various tents and take fliers out to the surrounding neighborhood, inviting people to come to the Saturday event. Hope Church has trained their volunteers for the Saturday event. Love Chicago’s primary role with Convoy of Hope is the setup the week prior to Convoy of Hope. (There may be heavy lifting during some set-up).
If you would like to participate in the actual Convoy of Hope event on Saturday, you can click here to sign up.
Love Chicago is excited to partner with Marc Henkle of CRU Inner City as we do several outreaches on streets, in parks and the popular Peace Campaign, offering prayer on a key street corner in Roseland on Southside Chicago. Many have pulled their cars over and received ministry of prayer and salvation. Those who walk by on the streets are offered an opportunity receive Jesus Christ as their Savior.
People involved in the legal system are typically afraid, angry, frustrated and spiritually destitute. Courtside Ministries exists to offer the love, peace and wisdom of Jesus Christ to anyone involved in the court system. People embroiled in the legal system are perhaps the largest unreached people group in America representing a huge opportunity for ministry. These people are loved by God and He wants each one to experience the redemption that comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ. We reach them at their point of deepest need. Courtside was born out of a vision to reach people with the grace and love of Jesus at a time when they are facing desperation and uncertainty. Love Chicago outreach teams will be going all throughout the week to join with Courtside Ministries, praying and ministering at Cook County Courthouse and Cook County Juvenile Court, to those coming and going from court.http://courtsideministries.org/
Atonement Church in Englewood will be hosting several outreaches throughout the week of Love Chicago. They will be starting off the week with a Peace March, which will go out from their church and into the neighborhood around them. The theme of this march will be unity in the church, racial reconciliation in our city and the ending of gun violence in Englewood. Award-winning Pastor Brewer has been on the front lines in her community, doing outreach outside of the four walls of the church, for years. They will continue the week with neighborhood/church clean-up, door to door, a block party with Team Xtreme and GX International Dancers and end the week with an outreach service, inviting the neighborhood into the church. You can sign up for these outreaches and spend your week in Englewood!
