AWOL: A Work of LoveAWOL (A Work of Love) are annual Mission Trips by our people to serve others in practical and relational ways.  The first of these trips occurred in the 1980's.  In the past Adult AWOL trips have helped with church planting in Mexico and home building with Habitat for Humanity in the Chicago metro area.  Senior high youth AWOL trips have gone to Mississippi, San Francisco, Texas, and Mexico. 

We hold as a core value that all pf God's people are called to ministry.  These hands-on service helps us develop a passion for serving in God's name, shining the light of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.
