A small delegation of our seventh and eighth graders will be headed to Nashville, TN June 17-22, 2012 to participate in a Group Workcamps Foundation Week of Hope. Each day they'll serve the poor, hungry, disabled, young and old, bringing God's love to those in need in Nashville while worshiping, engaging in God's Word, and making new friends.
This summer (July 8-13, 2012) 23 senior high youth and 5 adults will make the trek to Heifer Ranch in Perryville, AR. The Ranch is a farm complete with gardens and animals including water buffalo, camels and traditional farm animals such as pigs, goats and more. While working at the Ranch, connected to Heifer International, our youth will learn about how they can be a part of the solutions to global hunger and poverty. They'll also spend a night in the Heifer Village walking in the shoes of the world's poor.
2011 Mission to Peru (Companions without Borders)
Our senior high youth (those who have completed 9th-12th grade) head out in faith and service each summer on a three year rotation: international mission, domestic mission, and the Presybyterian Youth Triennium. Last summer they embarked on a new mission partnership with the people of Peru! Partnering with PC(USA) mission co-workers in Peru and the IEP (Inglesia Evangelica Peruana), 21 youth and 11 adults spent over a week in Cuzco and the surrounding areas working alongside Peruvian teens, helping in the construction and development of a youth center and reaching out to the neighborhood as they shared Christ's love. We look forward to strengthening ties with our sisters and brothers in Peru in the years to come.
