Youth Mission Project 2017

Dayton, Ohio

Loving Our Neighbors (and we’re all neighbors)

 

July 10 – 14, Monday through Friday, we invite your youth group to

join us in mission!

We will learn about the hunger situation in Dayton by serving with organizations on the front line. These solution makers work every day to feed Dayton citizens: growing, harvesting, collecting, sorting, preparing, feeding and respecting the dignity of every human being. Even with all that work, Dayton is one of the hungriest cities in the nation. Let us give our energies in support!!

This Mission Team will spend the week working with

House of Bread, The Food Bank and Harvest for Hope Garden

(and local pantries if we have people power and time)

  • Daily start time: 8:30 a.m. at the work site
  • Morning sessions: 8:30 – 11:30; lunch provided on site
  • Afternoon sessions: 1 – 4pm (teams at multiple locations)
  • Transportation provided daily, to and from work sites and to St. Paul’s for dinner and dismissal
  • Dinner for all missioners at St. Paul’s: 5 – 6pm all week (teams dismissed after the meal)
  • Wednesday is Movie Night (after dinner) for relaxation and social time; Friday is a unique celebration in the H4H garden for all participants & leaders
