Hey <<First Name>>!

      We hope you've had a wonderful summer, enjoying all that Chicago has to offer and getting in some vacation time too! Have you noticed all the recent grads and 20-somethings that have moved into the city the past few months?! Along with you, we're thrilled to welcome them into this great community of men and women and we have some events coming up to do just that.

      Please be sure to invite new (and old!) folks to come with you to Lunch in the Loop on Thurdsay and our Connection Brunch on Saturday. We look forward to catching up and hearing about your summer and what God has been doing in your life! We're also excited to talk about the year ahead as we continue to grow this network and seek to invest in 20-somethings in Chicago. We can't wait to see you soon!
Connect in Community

So many new folks have landed in the city this summer and we want to give everyone a chance to get connected over french toast and chilaquiles. Whether you're brand new or have been hanging around us for a few years, we'd love to see you as we ramp up for a great fall together! Feel free to bring friends and don't forget to bring cash or plan to Venmo.

Please let us know you're coming on the Facebook Event ASAP as we've made a large reservation and want to make sure everyone is included!

When: Saturday, Aug 26

Time: 10am-11:30am

Where: Brunch - 644 N Orleans, Chicago
Connect on Mission

Want to go deeper in community this year? How about your relationship with God? Do you dream about making real impact in the city of Chicago? Well so do we!

As the ministry of Cru for 20-somethings in Chicago we are excited about what the Lord is calling us to. We believe the city of Chicago will be transformed through men and women of this generation who are deeply connected to God, community and living on mission.

Maybe you’re new to the city or maybe you’ve been part of Cru for a while – either way we want to invite you to engage with us on a deeper level. We’ll share where we’ve come from and where we believe the Lord is taking us, but we want and NEED to hear your voice as we dream and plan for the year ahead!

We’ll end with dinner and time to hang. Be sure to save the date!

When: Saturday, Sept 16th

Time: 2pm-6pm 

Where941 N Hoyne Ave, Apt #2


Connect in Community
We're excited to kick off Lunch in the Loop again every other Thursday starting THIS week!
 Without space to connect with others the work day can be isolating, discouraging and long. We'd love for you to have a relaxing lunch hour to meet like-minded people and enjoy fellowship in the middle of your day. We also hope it's a safe space to invite friends and co-workers into community.

Join us this week!

When: Thursday, Aug 24

Time: Noon - 1:00pm

Where: Chase Tower Food Court - lower level (we sit near the entrance to the Blue Line, across from the food area)
Find Friends!
Did you know we have a closed Facebook Group where you can find and post info for others that are part our network? 

Gather a group together for a movie you've wanted to see. Let people know about an event your church is hosting. Share about a roommate need or an open spot in your apartment. We want this to be a safe space to connect with other 20-somethings in the city. 

Make sure to join today and invite others to do the same!

Who Are We?
We are a growing network of 20-somethings in Chicagoland and in other cities around the country. We want to help this generation connect. Connect with God, connect in community, and connect to their God-given purpose in life.

We also desire to see the local church thrive and to that end we come alongside and partner with the church to serve millennials, the next generation of leaders. We believe when the individual and church are thriving we will see whole neighborhoods renewed and industries prospering for the good of all people and to the glory of God.

And we believe God has called you here, even if it's for a short time, to experience abundant life in Him and to serve Him by fully living out who He's created you to be. We don't want you to "join us," in fact we want nothing more than to join you and encourage and serve you as you live on mission in your work, in your neighborhood and in this city.
