SR Uth | Calgary Mustard Seed | July 9 to 16, 2017
This event is for our youth heading into grade 9 in the Fall and our current SR High youth. On July 9-16 we are leading a team to Calgary for 5 days of inner city work with the Mustard Seed & their Demo Crew summer experience. During that time our youth will be able to prep and serve meals to people experiencing homelessness, serve in the clothes sorting warehouse, hear testimonies of people who the Mustard Seed have helped, and learn about homelessness through ‘A Day in the Life of’. The Mustard Seed seeks to aid those experiencing homelessness by providing for their physical needs… shelter, food, clothing, jobs, but also seeks to walk beside every individual that comes through the Mustard Seed by giving them Christian spiritual guidance. The second part of our trip is in Tunnel Mountain, Banff where we spend a couple days camping, hiking, and debriefing from the days spent pouring into the lives of those we met in Calgary. This trip has so much potential to impact our youth to serve in humility, to have eyes to see the brokenness around them, and to have the heart that breaks for what breaks God’s heart.
JR UTH | Serve the City Missions Trip | July 28 to 30, 2017
SASKATOON | PLEASANT HILL COMMUNITY CHURCH
This will be our 3rd summer running our JR Uth inner-city plunge into Saskatoon. Through out the youth calendar year we plan service events called ‘Serve the City’ where we intentionally partner with a Christian ministry in the city of Saskatoon to be the hands & feet of Jesus. This missions trip is our Serve the City Missions Trip, for our current grade 6’s & 7’s, where we will partner with some of the same ministries while staying in the city @ Pleasant Hill Community Church. It is a short missions trip and only minutes away from our community but it is worthwhile to see the needs around us and be challenged in our own faith journey on how we should respond to those needs on a regular basis.
