As health and safety is our number one priority for our pastors, delegates and all those involved, the Chicago Central District NMI Convention and Loved 2 Serve work project will cancel the in-person convention and project we had planned for March 28, 2020. We are working with the district office to discuss possibilities. Please be looking in your email for updates as to what will happen. We will also post updates on this website as we make them.

Presidents: Please arrive by 8am and check in at the registration desk in the foyer. No one except NMI Presidents should register. NMI Presidents will register their pastor and delegates and pick up all packets.
Breakfast Bar: There will be a Breakfast Bar available to all attendees of this year’s district conventions. Please be sure to stop by!
Crisis Care Kits, etc.: Don't forget your Crisis Care Kits, School Pal Packs, gently used clothing, and $4.00/box or bag. Make checks out to "CCD-NMI". Remember, the district goal is to "Fill the Trailer"! Also – don’t forget to mail your $12/box check to headquarters for their processing of CCKs.

Only those participating in the work projects will need to order a boxed lunch. Lunch is NOT provided by the district. Typically, it is the responsibility of each participating church to cover the meal expense for it’s delegates.
Links Assignment: We will be continuing our relationship with our two Links missionary families. We will want to love on them in exceptional ways. Please pay your Links apportionment online at Funding the Mission – your church treasurer can pay this for you. Please be sure to specify that it is for Links and which missionary you are sending funds. If you need to know what your church owes, please refer to our Links page at http://ccdnmi.org/missionaries/links
Love Offering: We will take TWO offerings during the day. One offering will be a love offering received for Rev. Rich. Come ready to generously participate. Make checks payable to “CCD-NMI” and please identify the name of your church if you use a personal check. The second offering will be a special offering for our brothers and sisters in the Costa Rica North district. Our 10-year partnership is coming to a conclusion and we would love to send them a generous love offering to show them our support.
