Restore Missions Weekend is a collaborative effort by a few churches (Redemption, Living Water Alliance, Living Water Evangelical, Jubilee, Living Hope) to raise mission mindedness in the Chicagoland area, especially among young adults. It will be a two-day event, with worship services on Friday and Saturday nights (3/28 at 7:30pm and 3/29 at 7pm), as well as a Q/A time called “Ask George Anything” on just Saturday night (3/39 at 6pm).
