Saint Charles Community Impact

Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2

God has uniquely placed you within a certain geographical location. The neighborhood you live in. The corner store you shop at. Regardless of where you live, you have people all around you who are hurting and need Jesus through your hands and hearts. 

Your St. Charles campus is located at 37W100 Bolcum Road and therefore called to make an impact for God's Kingdom in this specific community. Through Community Impact, you have the ability to serve and reach people others might not ever cross paths with.

Covid-19 Response

The Coronavirus has touched all of us in one way, shape, or form. Our hope is that while we continue to move towards reopening in our communities, you may continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus as you love and serve our immediate neighbors well.
