2018 Year in Review
At COMMUNITY, everything we do and every dollar we invest is about the mission of helping people find their way back to God.
I can’t believe that 2018 is already coming to an end. It was an amazing year, but it seems to have flown by. So, let’s take some time to reflect with gratitude on how God has worked through COMMUNITY in 2018.
It was early this year that we finished up ONE, our generosity initiative, and we came together as ONE church to accomplish God’s work in three important categories:
Together, we celebrated the grand opening of our Plainfield location and its
Sportsplex, constructed a dedicated space for our Kids’ City and Student
Community in Yorkville and helped more people than ever before find their
way back to God across Chicagoland!
Together, we completed the relocation and renovation of our Aurora
location, positioning us to reach the greater Aurora community and for it to
serve as a base for our restore efforts through Community 4:12. Through Celebration Generosity, we gave over $562,000 to four great causes, bringing our 11-year collective total to $5.78M!
Together, we launched a brand new location in Downers Grove that is
reaching hundreds of people every week, as well as our Community Freedom
initiative that will plant church locations in prisons.
Pretty amazing, huh? Take some time to read through the stories and statistics in our 2018 Year In Review. As you do, please thank God for the many great things that have happened this year and pray for all of us to continue to grow and develop as we follow Jesus in 2019.
Your partner on the Jesus mission!
