Summer Service Learning Experiences

Short-term mission experiences can have a big impact. Youth in 5th-12th grade who choose to spend a week of their summer vacation dedicated to service will:

  • Discover where God is already at work in communities in need
  • Act as the hands and feet of Christ to share God’s love with the world
  • Learn that those who seem different are not very different at all
  • Practice putting others’ needs above their own desires
  • Lean on God to realize their ability to overcome new challenges

Camp Purpose:
Youth will become acquainted with some of the difficulties and systematic inequities faced by people living right here in Contra Costa County. They will explore and experience the many ways we can share God’s love and justice! We hope this week will inspire the youth to serve and love others throughout their lives.

What Will We Be Doing?
Each day, we will serve in teams of 7-8 youth and 1 adult at LOPC or a different local LOPC mission partner organization. Service-learning experiences may include:

  • Packing baby clothes for Loved Twice
  • Creating cards & to-go bags for Trinity Center
  • Sorting & prepping produce at The Food Bank
  • Distributing food boxes at Monument Crisis Center
  • Preparing donations at White Pony Express
  • Socializing safely with Thursday Fellowship seniors
  • Packing rice & beans for LOPC’s Rice & Beans Project
  • Building & painting playhouses for Habitat for Humanity

We hope you can join us for this amazing opportunity to learn more about God’s love and justice in today’s world!
