Youth grades 7-12th can join this summer in our Summer Service Days. We will spend some time in our local community serving those in need; projects will vary based on the needs of the community. Often youth will go great lengths to travel and serve others States away when we still have those in our own community in need of help. Summer Service will be Wednesday mornings, starting at 8am: July 10th, July 24th, August 7th, and August 21st.
