We are sad to announce that the TRC Summer School program that was initially planned for this Summer will be postponed to next year. There were a couple of unforeseen scheduling conflicts with the church that we had hoped to partner with and therefore the program will kick off next summer. Please continue to pray for the program as we plan, prepare, and seek additional avenues that God will provide for us to reach into the Dupage County neighborhood! Please keep an eye out for more information to come regarding the program!

Our annual Summer Retreat will take place from July 24-26 at George Williams College at Lake Geneva Wisconsin.  The theme of this year’s retreat is “Ordinary Lives Extraordinary Mission” and our speaker will be Rev. Dan Hyun, Lead pastor of the Village Church in Baltimore.  Additional details and online registration are available at our website  Financial assistance is available to help cover the cost of retreat.  Please sign up as soon as possible as we plan all of the details!

There are plenty of opportunities to put your gifts to good use at TRC. If you are interested in serving in some way, please email us at

As one ministry we wanted to highlight, the Food Ministry is looking for additional volunteers to help provide breakfast on Sunday mornings.  To find out more or join the Food Ministry, contact Cindy Lam at or stop by the welcoming table.
