Ugandan Kids Choir at GCC

Last weekend, we hosted 10 singers who form the Ugandan Kids Choir.  Along with their 3 chaperones, they stayed with families of GCC for three nights.  Saturday, Oct. 24, we went on a train to downtown Chicago where the kids saw their first skyscrapers and played in Millenium and Maggie Daley Parks.  Sunday, October 25, we were treated to their incredible musical talents as they shared a half hour of their music with our congregation.  Thank you to all of the host families!  It was an incredible weekend!
