Reload: Chicago Urban Youth Workers Conference

Reload is a one day conference. There are 80 churches within 1 mile of 79th & King, but our neighborhood's residents go to 200 (or more) churches! Many of them will be at Reload. (Churches include: Salem Baptist, Apostolic Church of God, Fellowship Missionary Baptist, Canaan Missionary Baptist, Lawndale Community Church, Christ Bible Church (formerly known as South Shore Baptist), Armitage Baptist, New Life Covenant, Oakdale Covenant, La Viitta Commnity, New Life Community, Evangel Assembly)

However, it seems like NONE of the churches in the 6th ward have come.

If you read this on Saturday, when you go to church on Sunday GRAB YOUR YOUTH MINISTER.

If you miss them on Sunday, CALL THEM ON MONDAY.
