Transport from the airport

If you plan to fly to Chicago, we encourage you to fly into the Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) as its closest to the church (20 min). Midland Airport is 1 hour away.

There is NO organized shuttle from the airport to/from the church center, but our team is happy to connect you to others who are arriving at the airport around the same time so you can share an Uber/Lyft to the church center which is only 20 minutes away and usually costs $25-30.

Thus, we recommend flying into the Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) on Friday, October 18 by 3 PM (5 PM program start time) and flying out on Sunday, October 20 after 6 PM (3:30 PM program end time).
