Seek and serve Christ in all persons
Every summer, our youth and several adult volunteers embark on a six-day adventure to Los Angeles, CA “to seek and serve Christ in all persons.” Three days are spent in service at Alexandria House, a facility for women and children transitioning out of homelessness. Together we cook for residents, have a blast playing with kids, work on hands-on projects, and experience God’s love in a real community. There’s plenty of time for fun, friendship-building, discussing our experiences, and saying our prayers together. We also spend four evenings at The Midnight Mission experiencing first-hand what it means to proclaim God’s love as we serve dinner to over 500 homeless guests each night.
Your energy, participation, questions, experiences, and discussions in service make this mission trip extremely powerful. On our return, we share our experiences from the pulpit during Sunday worship services. Bring your friends and come ready for one of the best weeks of your year!
Grades: 9-12 (youth who have completed 8th grade in May 2019 through to youth who are graduating high school in May 2019)
