WHAT IS CHIC?
COVENANT HIGH IN CHRIST. CHIC began with a dream to gather Covenant people together to praise God, share in a rich time of fellowship and encourage each other in faith. CHIC is an incredible experience that comes once every three years. For five jam-packed days, we are privileged to hear from gifted speakers, sing praises to God (six thousand voices strong!), engage with the Word of God, and interact with others from around the world.
WHERE IS CHIC?
CHIC will be held at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, July 15–20, 2018. Thousands of students and adults from around North America and abroad will gather for a week of worship, interacting with God’s Word, learning experiences, service, new friendships, and fun.
HOW CAN YOU BE PRAYING FOR CHIC?
Pray for the thousands of students who are coming to CHIC, that they would know Christ’s love for them, and that they would experience him through worship and through their peers and mentors. Pray for our volunteers and leaders as they plan and prepare for CHIC, that God would give them wisdom and encouragement. Pray for University of Tennessee, who will be hosting us. Pray for their staff and leaders as they partner with us in this event.
“I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” —Ephesians 4:1-6
We will be offering two fundraisers for individuals interested in gathering support for CHIC2018. Both fundraisers are optional.
HCYM has partnered with Messenger Coffee for a fundraiser that will last from Feb. 1, 2018 through March 31, 2018. Messenger Coffee will be donating $7 per bag sold and providing a 100% match donation at the end of the fundraiser. This means your son/daughter will receive $14 towards their CHIC registration for each bag of coffee sold. See details below for easy step-by-step directions on the Messenger Coffee fundraiser.
We are excited to host two lunches to help raise support and awareness for CHIC 2018. The first lunch will be a Mexican theme and take place on February 25. The second lunch will be April 15 and be an Italian theme. Both lunches will take place from 11:00am-1:00pm in the Fellowship Hall at Hillcrest. A free-will offering will be taken at the end of the lunch and will be distributed evenly amongst the students/parents who are helping at the event. For those interested in participating in the lunches please contact Clarissa Figueiredo and she will give you further details.
