Parents! Why does your youth who just completed 6th, 7th, or 8th grade need to go to JHSE at Virginia Beach for the week of July 21-26 this summer? To help ignite their passion for service, to help them learn that the world is a bigger place than themselves, and to have them think about their relationship to God in a new way!
Held at Virginia Beach, our middle schoolers will learn through a variety of projects how to live of life of service to their neighbors. In the past we have helped at a clothing thrift shop, gleaned peaches and corn, cooked and served a meal to homeless men and women, and helped at a therapeutic riding farm. We will get to the beach to worship, to learn, and to swim, to make the connection to being “At the Water’s Edge.” What an exciting way to learn about the many ways God calls us to be witnesses with both our voices and our hands!
Best of all, the cost is $110 (plus some spending money) because we sleep at a church and cook our own meals. For general info, please download the 2019 JHSE General Congregational Flyer. For Our Saviour specific questions, please call or text Tom Bartkiewicz. Registration is open at https://tithe.ly/event-registration/#/632658
