The 2018 MVS national retreat will be held in Chicago, Illinois, Oct. 28 - Nov. 1.
The national retreat is a time for you to get together with other MVSers to relax, have fun, worship, and spend some time reflecting on your MVS terms and assignments.
DOOR will be hosting us for this retreat, and we will be staying at the First Church of the Brethren in East Garfield Park (3560 W Congress Pkwy).
Please plan to arrive at the church at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 28. The church has several services on Sunday and would prefer that we arrive no earlier than 6pm, so if you have an earlier flight, you may need to hang out at the airport for a little while. You will be using public transportation to travel from the airport to the church, so be sure to factor in that travel time.
The retreat ends after breakfast on Thursday, Nov. 1. When booking flights, please choose a flight that departs no earlier than 12 p.m. to allow you time to get to the airport (the church is about an hour from Midway, and 90 minutes from O'Hare).
