The goal of the Youth Mission program is to learn to live the church mission statement: We are committed to building the body of Christ by sharing God's word, showing God's love, and serving in God's world. We explore the world, and spend our time in study and fellowship as well as working where we are called to aid those who are in need.
From June 9th to the 16th, 34 members of our youth group - 23 students and 10 adults - spent the week in Slidell, LA working on hurricane recovery relief. We were hosted and led by the Epworth Project based in Slidell. Our group was divided into four different work crews that were assigned to three different houses and an elementary school. We are thankful to those who supported our cause and look forward to next year!
