On a cold Sacramento morning, 14 tired teenagers, including myself, stood with our bags in the airport. We said our good-byes to our parents and our greetings to one another. A quick plane ride landed us in Portland, Oregon, where we met with our other group and were hurried around to see all the sights. Food trucks, parks, crazy donut shops, and local oddities passed by in a flash, and before we knew it, we were on a train to our final destination: Whitefish, Montana. In the observation car, the teenagers roamed and ruled.
This year’s day of service, God’s Work: Our Hands Sunday is September 11. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that happened in New York on this day. With this in mind, our projects focus on peace and care of community, from our own street to the world.
There is one worship at 9:00 am on Sunday. The rest of the morning is filled with service and fellowship outside our walls. Please plan on joining us for this intentional day of service.
