The Words of the Rendel Family
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Thank you for your consistent investment of heart and effort in God’s Providence. We are greatly blessed to welcome True Parents and In Jin Nim to Chicago next month for two very important events -- the 14th Annual True Family Values Ministry Awards Banquet and special Lovin’ Life Ministries Sunday Worship Service. Both events will be held at the historic Hilton Chicago Hotel (720 S. Michigan Ave., IL).
The banquet begins at 12:00 noon on Saturday, December 19, 2009 (doors open at 11:15 AM). This year’s theme is “Honoring God’s Pivotal Champions of Faith” and exemplary religious, academic and civic leaders will be awarded, as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award to True Father for his unprecedented contributions to world peace. True Father will also deliver the keynote address following an introduction by In Jin Nim. Music will be provided by the Lovin’ Life Ministries Band and other local performers. Tickets are $70 each or $600 per table (block of ten). Our goal is 1,000 attendees (must be 12 years and older). More information about the banquet and online ticket orders can be accessed at www.tfvbanquet.com.
The Lovin’ Life Ministries Sunday Worship Service will begin at 10:00 AM in the same ballroom as the banquet (doors will open at 9:30 AM). Hundreds of Unification families from throughout the Midwest and other parts of America will attend with our District 7 families and friends. It will be an incredible celebration with the sermon from In Jin Nim and music from the Lovin’ Life Ministries Band! Attendance is free for all ages -- a love offering will be collected.
Activities for youth in Jr. High School and older will also be conducted after the banquet on Saturday afternoon and evening under the leadership of the Lovin’ Life Ministries Staff. It will be a tremendous opportunity for education and fellowship. Details about the programs and online registration can be accessed at www.llmmidwest.com.
Sleeping rooms are available at the Hilton Chicago at a special rate of $99 plus tax per night (request the “True Family Values” rate). Many restaurants are conveniently located within several blocks of the hotel. Hoon Dok Hae will be conducted on Sunday morning. Parking is available at the Hilton Chicago at $20 per day or $45 for 24 hours. Other parking garages and lot with cheaper rates are also located near the hotel.
