The Center is on the Move 
In August of 2016, it became evident that the meeting place of The Center, located at The Hub in New Lenox, was going to be changing.  Since then, our efforts have begun towards relocation.  
A relocation committee is coming together. We are investigating our options and gathering information. It is a unanimous agreement that we need to return The Center to Joliet. We are diligently seeking Gods direction, listening to His voice and watching for His leading, being careful not to move ahead too fast and not lagging behind.  We want to be obedient in what He is calling us to do and where He is calling us to go.  


Joliet is the ideal location for many reasons:  Most of our kids are from Joliet We have a strong connection with the Joliet public school system who has asked us to be a resource for them and they have encouraged our move to Joliet. We feel our exposure and impact will be greater in the community We will update you with our progress and ask you to be a part of what is happening.
