Youth groups are invited to join us for an inspiring day that includes a first-hand look into our mission and the exemplary programs offered at Cunningham. Cunningham also teams up with the Wesley Student Center, the United Methodist campus ministry at the University of Illinois, to provide an additional experience for youth groups!

At Mission Day, youth learn:
  • what happens daily to help the vulnerable and hurting youth that we serve;
  • the importance of faith for healing;
  • the involvement of United Methodists in our mission; and
  • how to put their prayers, presence, gifts, and service into action.

With the Mission Project at Wesley, youth:

  • participate in a hands-on packaging project (Friday or Saturday) that will help feed our local neighbors through the Wesley Food Pantry; and
  • learn about what Wesley students are doing to fight hunger and make a difference in God’s world.

Friday and Saturday options will also include a guided tour of the Wesley Student Center and an evening meal and s’mores
