Junior Highs to hold local/mini-workcamp in November

Posted August 20th, 2010

Last Spring there were fifteen Junior High Youth who wanted to attend a workcamp, but because of fundraising for National Youth Conference and too few advisors to accompany them, that did not work out. Instead, this year they will plan their own workcamp experience for the summer of 2011, learning about why to participate in a workcamp and thinking about the kinds of projects they can do and where they might do them.

In preparation, they will participate in a local/mini-workcamp during the month of November. They will do local service projects and spend more time working on their summer workcamp plans. To this end, they are looking for some worthwhile project ideas. They have already approached the Properties Team about some things that could be done around the church building, but they’d also be interested in hearing ideas of some projects to do in the community. Know of someone who could use some help in their yard in mid-November? Let us know. Aware of a special project that could use some extra hands in mid-November? Let us know.

Contact Pastor Shawn at shawn@macbrethren.org or 620-241-1109 with your ideas. Thanks!
