In the wake of Charlottesville, we’ve been praying about how we can continue to live out the Gospel, especially as it confronts racism in our city. Greenhouse has growing partnerships with African American churches on the West Side of Chicago—now all are invited to how to be part of this partnership, on teams that will form to build new and ongoing relationships. All are welcome—leaders and beginners, individuals, and families with kids.
