So, you’re registered and you have 4 weeks to pack for CHIC…we’d like to help you pack what you’ll want to be sure to bring along.
As you probably know by now, one of our most fundamental partnerships this year at CHIC will be KARM & here’s a list of items that KARM has identified as needs for both them as an organization serving the homeless population of Knoxville, and the homeless themselves. We are asking that people prayerfully consider donating either money towards these items, or the items themselves and send them with students coming to CHIC. This is an exciting way that whole congregations can connect to and impact the ministry which will occur the week of CHIC.
