Registration fees do NOT include transportation to and from the sites. Each church group must provide vehicle(s) and adult driver(s) for the entire mission experience regardless of whether you fly or drive to the site. The vehicles you bring will be used to transport small groups to the work site each day, so 12-passenger vans or mini-vans are preferred. Cars do not facilitate the transportation of an entire small group in one vehicle, so please do not bring them. If you wish to bring a bus, please check with the Host Team to see if this is acceptable before you make arrangements. If your group is unable to provide van transportation, please have a youth leader call Youth Unlimited to discuss options and additional charges.

Site Description

Located on the south side of the Chicago metropolitan area, Palos Heights CRC has more than a 50-year history of ministry within our local and extended community. Originally planted in a farming community, Palos Heights CRC now exists in a mature suburban community in the heart of Chicagoland, eager to see the renewal of our community through our ministry and outreach. While Palos Heights is just minutes away from the beauty and grandeur of downtown Chicago, we also are just minutes away from some of the most impoverished communities in the metro area. From urban ministry centers to local non-profits, we are excited to partner with you during SERVE to reach out with the love of Christ to those in need.


Participants will sleep, eat and meet at Palos Heights CRC. Our sleeping facilities have A/C, but showers will be off-site. Guys and girls will stay in either our LINK building or Preschool building and will eat and fellowship in the main church building.

Day Away

Our Sunday afternoon will be spent at Camp Manitoqua, and our day away will be spent in downtown Chicago, with a visit to the Hancock building and the Chicago 360 observatory.
