Location and directionsGet Directions
Registration fees do NOT include transportation to and from the sites. Each youth missionary group must provide vehicle(s) and adult driver(s) (typically small group leaders) to transport an equal number of youth participants during the duration of the mission experience regardless of whether you fly or drive to the site. The vehicles you bring will be used to transport small youth missionary 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.
For your decision-making purposes, the closest airport is Chicago O’Hare (ORD), Chicago Midway, or Indianapolis. Please DO NOT book airfare until you have received written confirmation from Youth Unlimited that you have been placed at this site.
Roselawn is a small rural community with many residents working in the steel mills 25 miles north in Gary Indiana. Community Church began a ministry in Roselawn over 30 years ago with a Vacation Bible School. Today, Community Church is a growing and thriving young church with people from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. Our vision statement reads: Celebrating Christ; Restoring Community. We celebrate our relationship with Jesus Christ through God-honoring worship, and we restore community through acts of loving-kindness, modelling Christ’s love for us. We are an outreach church totally dedicated to mobilizing the body of Christ to serve our community. When you come to Serve here, you’ll join a work already in progress, which will continue long after your week here is over. The hands-on aspect of the work will include many sites dedicated to home repairs in low-income housing.
We’ll be staying in our church building, Community Christian Reformed. There’s plenty of space to eat, sleep, pray and play. We won’t promise you the luxuries of home but we meet your needs and then some.
Indian Dunes will give us a great place to run hard or relax. The shoreline of Lake Michigan is dotted with steep dunes that flatten out into the state park where there is lots to do. Deep River Waterpark is something that we might be considering as well. Huge waterpark with over 14 attractions and slides.
The host site is handicap accessible, and there is access to a handicap shower.
