The Big Day of Serving- coming to a city near you!

 Where Hundreds of teenagers unite to transform an entire neighborhood in a single day!

On Saturdays this fall, hundreds of teenagers will converge on local neighborhoods to bring help and hope to our citizens in need. They will unite to work on projects such as painting, minor home repairs, landscaping, cleaning and beautifying city blocks, alleyways, and parks, planting community gardens, removing graffiti, and cleaning vacant lots.

Known as “The Big Day of Serving,” this massive joint effort is organized by Group Mission Trips—a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Group Mission Trips provides dynamic opportunities including service events that help children, youth, and adults connect with Jesus Christ while serving people in his name. It is a part of a new movement of Christian teens across the country “uniting to show what it means to be the hands and feet of Jesus.” Group is interdenominational, focusing on the core beliefs that bring Christians together.

Local and area-wide groups of teens are encouraged to get involved in The Big Day of Serving. Youth leaders are invited to register their entire groups (grades 6-12) to participate. Early-bird registration is only $29 per person and includes pre-event project selection and coordination, a kickoff rally on the morning of the event, all supplies and project materials, lunch, devotional materials for mid-day break, and a neighborhood Block Party Celebration to finish the day.

The Big Day of Serving Comes to Yorkville Cont.

 Yorkville, IL—Dennis Bowers, youth leader for Peace Lutheran Church, took his youth group to help with a previous Big Day of Serving. He said, “It was good to see the youth work so hard to show God’s love to other people they had never met.”

City officials are invariably amazed at what well-organized youth groups can accomplish in only one day. The local response to The Big Day of Serving is extremely positive, and the citizens of the renovated neighborhoods are typically overwhelmed with renewed pride and hope. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.

As Cheryl Boettger, education director for Mt. Washington United Methodist Church, said, “I like the one-day format. My group had a wonderful day, and we were grateful to have the opportunity to serve.”
