What is Week of Hope?

·         Week of Hope offer kids the opportunity to focus serving the needs of people through local ministries and non-profit organizations.

·         uniquely designed to offer affordable 5-day youth missions that immerse students in the life-changing experience of serving.

·         The projects at Week of Hope require little or no capital funds, keeping the trip costs low. And throughout the week, youth are continually serving others: both people in the local community, and one another.

·         Project include:  Supporting local food banks; • Playing a game with an elderly person; Helping to lead a day camp for children; Landscaping homes, non-profits, and ministries; Working with disabled children; Serving a needy resident

·         In addition to serving the community, students will take turns preparing meals and cleaning the facility where they will live with other youth groups during the week.

·         Programs are led by well-trained staff leaders – but students will have the opportunity to serve by leading worship music and other parts of each worship program (feel free to bring guitars, drums and their great voices!).

·         Students will begin to understand what Jesus meant when He said – “I came not to be served but to serve…” Matthew 20:28.

Day 27: I M P A C T

When was the last time your world collided with someone else?

Were you thankful for the impact or frustrated by the friction?

Perhaps the friction lit a spark that started a fire. Fires warm and scortch. I’m thankful for impacts, even with friction, that spark my step and help warm cold hearts, but hopefully don’t burn. Here’s to hoping-embracing these collisions like you embrace a hug. Here’s to a day of remembering, a week of hope, and month of gratitude for impacts in my life.

Can I get a witness?

Workcamps from Group Mission Trips are weeklong home repair mission camps for Christian youth. These camps are big, high-energy experiences where youth groups serve people in need through challenging home repair projects. For six days, youth join other young people to repair sagging porches, rebuild unsafe steps and wheelchair ramps and paint homes. The young people will transform a house, and God will transform their faith.

 “We’ve made Week of Hope an annual event to provide time together for our group. As they work, play and worship together, relationships are built and strengthened, which sets a valuable stage for the work of the Spirit in their hearts and lives. The kids get along better when they get home. They have drawn closer to their group leader and have experienced God in real and personal ways-priceless.” -Tom Smithson, Salem Evangelical FreeRead testimonials from Youth Leaders and campers who have attended a Week of Hope mission trip…
