Forty people ages 14 to 72 gathered on a cold February day to demolish walls and make way for a new facility for Daystar Christian School in Chicago. As walls came down, relationships between people of different ethnic backgrounds were built.
The work day was cosponsored by Christian Service Ministries and the Race Relations Committee of Classis Chicago South. People from 13 churches, both urban and suburban, worked together for this school, which serves children from various socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds.
Christian Service Ministries is a ministry of the Christian Reformed churches of Classis Chicago South. It’s designed to help local churches minister in their communities.
