Hands Across Chicago is an annual city-wide united prayer and faith-in-action event hosted on Memorial Day weekend.

As the weather warms up in Chicago, often violence does as well. We want to see the Church responding with prayer and positive presence—we can be a part of making peace happen.

For the past three years, Hands Across Chicago has been a practical expression of the Church praying together and working together for peace.

Join us on Friday, May 28, from 7-8pm for an hour of city-wide prayer. Sign up to host a prayer location in your neighborhood with your church or small group.

Then, put your faith into action to seek the wellbeing of that location over the weekend – you could clean the block, host a barbecue, or bring positive presence to a hotspot corner.

Make it your own and collaborate with other churches and organizations around you. There’s something for all us as we link our hands across Chicago in prayer and action this Memorial Day weekend.

Manos a través de Chicago (Hands Across Chicago) es un evento anual de oración y fe en acción unida en toda la ciudad que se celebra el fin de semana del Día de los Caídos.

A medida que el clima se calienta en Chicago, a menudo también lo hace la violencia. Queremos que la Iglesia responda con oración y presencia positiva; podemos ser parte para lograr que la paz suceda.

Durante los últimos tres años, Manos a través de Chicago ha sido una expresión práctica de la Iglesia orando y trabajando juntos por la paz.

Únase a nosotros el viernes, 28 de mayo de 7 a 8 pm para una hora de oración en toda la ciudad. Regístrese para organizar un lugar de oración en su vecindario con su iglesia o grupo pequeño.

Luego, ponga su fe en acción para buscar el bienestar de ese lugar durante el fin de semana: podría limpiar el bloque, organizar una barbacoa o llevar una presencia positiva a un rincón caliente.

Hágalo suyo y colabore con otras iglesias y organizaciones a su alrededor. Hay algo para todos nosotros mientras unimos nuestras manos a través de Chicago en oración y acción este fin de semana del Día de los Caídos.
