Missions Trips are really important opportunities for students to bust out of their bubble and experience serving Christ in a new culture, but there’s always the danger that students will learn to serve “there” but not “here.” Because of that, we are taking the days following the 4th of July (July 5-8) and setting them aside to serve Christ by serving the needy in our community.
Please prayerfully consider this opportunity to have your eyes opened to the needs in your own backyard… and do something about it in the name of Christ.
Tuesday and Wednesday (7/5-7/6) we will be serving meals through the Boston Rescue Mission’s “Kingston House” and then partnering with Starlight Ministry’s night-time outreaches to the homeless in Boston. If you went to CSM: Toronto with us last year, what we’re doing these two days will be especially powerful for you as you engage in ministry to the homeless population in Boston.
Thursday through Friday we will be serving in various capacities in our local communities. The week will be structured so that as many students can be involved as are able, so if you cannot commit to the whole week, that’s ok (except for the days in Boston, students serving in that way should commit to both days).
Travel and food costs will be left up to each student and will depend on the day, but costs will be very minimal. Please contact Pastor Mike for more details if you or your teenager are interested.
