Evanston United Church Coalition
The Evanston Community Council is helping to organize its community-based churches together under one central leadership group, the Evanston United Church Coalition. This group is meeting monthly to discuss mutual interests in the Educating Community. The central concern of all pastors thus far has been with the youth and parents of youth. The pastors are uniting to extend their missionary and outreach so that they may save some of the youth who are lost. They will accomplish this goal by hosting community events, sponsoring programming at the Evanston Recreation Center and providing volunteers to community-based programming.
Evanston Community Council and the Evanston Recreation Center are partnering to ensure this group founds itself upon solid ground moving forward.
