The SAFC Annual Banquet


Saturday evening is the annual South Asian Friendship Center banquet (SAFC) where I’ll preach a message titled “The Transfigured Life.” We’ll consider the question of how men and women may encounter the empowering presence of Christ in the midst of our mundane lives. For those who are interested, the event will be held at the Commons of College Church in Wheaton from 4-7pm.

SAFC is located in the heart of Chicago’s Little India — an ethnically diverse neighborhood of people from India and Pakistan, as well as from Bangladesh, Nepal and Afghanistan. The community is primarily comprised of Muslims and Hindus, but it also has Sikhs, Christians, and Zoroastrians. The mission of the SAFC is to be a positive and active presence in the heart of this community, while proclaiming the uniqueness of Christ in word and deed.
