MISSION FEST 2022
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. – Acts 1:8
Mission Fest is a celebration of all God is doing through Christ Church’s global and domestic mission partners! This year we’ll explore the many ways our Church community serves those in need — and to what “ends” our partners go to bring God’s Good News to all creation.
Mission Fest features opportunities to meet and learn about our servant-hearted missionaries and community-transforming partner organizations. We invite you to lean into Mission Fest with an open mind and heart, listening for how the Holy Spirit might be nudging you toward missional living in your day-to-day life. Our hope is that you and your family will leave the week with a deeper understanding of, appreciation for, and commitment to spreading the life-changing love of Jesus Christ.
MISSION FEST SCHEDULE
MISSION PARTNER HOME DINNERS
Saturday, October 15 and Sunday, October 16 | Homes in the Community
Have you ever hoped to learn more about how God is moving in the places our mission partners call home? For these special gatherings, members of Christ Church graciously open their homes for the evening so you can share a meal with our global partners, ask them questions, hear their stories and pray for their ministries. This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a personal relationship with our partners and affirm their servant-hearted work.
MISSION PARTNER SHOWCASE
Sunday, October 16 | Before & After Worship | Oak Brook & Butterfield
Make plans to visit Fellowship Hall or the Butterfield Commons, grab a cup of coffee and a donut and meet some of our amazing global and domestic mission partners! You’ll be inspired by the many ways God is at work and discover how you too can be part of His great redemptive mission for the world.
FOR CHICAGOLAND SERVE DAY
Saturday, October 22 | Various Locations Throughout Chicagoland
Can one ordinary day bring hope and light to hundreds of people in DuPage and Cook County? We think so — and we need your help! We’re rolling up our sleeves and going out into the community to help lift our neighbors to their God-given potential. There are a variety of projects for you, your family and friends to choose from—from serving meals, painting and playing music to building, gardening and writing cards of encouragement. You don’t want to miss this!
To the Ends of the Earth Sermon Series
Sunday, October 16 & 23
