CHIC, July 14-21, 2018 was a national gathering of thousands of High School students from the Evangelical Covenant Church which is held at the University of Tennessee Campus in Knoxville, Tennessee. It was a week of incredible worship, fun and community building with friends.

There was tons to do at CHIC. Basically, there was times to hang out and just have fun together. There were times when we gathered with thousands of other High School students to worship God together and listen to some of the best teachers on the planet. There were times where we connected in small groups to process the week, and LOTS more!

Mission Peoria, for Middle Schoolers, was July 22-28, 2018. For one week, we spent our day in a rotation of worship and service. Every morning, we began listening to God’s voice through the Bible, then we headed out to work at a local service project. In the afternoon, our serve teams went to a local park or church for Metro Kids, a VBS like program to neighborhood children. During Metro Kids, the students are the leaders. The adults are simply there for support, encouragement and help with problem solving. In the evenings, we returned to our home base at Riverside Community Church where we spend the evening in powerful worship and encouraging, insightful small group discussion of the day.
