21 youth and 6 adult leaders spent the week serving with YouthWorks in Benton Harbor, MI.
They enjoyed their time serving, complete with a day in Chicago and fun on the shores of Lake Michigan. Here’s their “report back” with photos and thoughts from the youth and leaders:
Each Summer, Messiah Youth have two opportunities to spend a week serving others. Middle School and High School students participate in STORM Camp, where they work and worship. Groups of five youth and one adult spend the day serving in the community – building, painting, cleaning, weeding, etc. Each evening is spent in worship, complete with music, testimonies, and preaching.
High School students also have the opportunity to serve for a week with YouthWorks. They travel out of state and spend a week serving in various ways, while also learning about the community they are serving. Each evening there is an opportunity to engage with members of that community.
For more information on these Youth serving experiences, contact Sami Tierney, Director of Youth and Family Ministry.
