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




Youth who have completed 5th or 6th grade in June will serve for a couple hours each day with a local (East Bay) mission partner, then returning to debrief and reflect on their experience. Youth will become acquainted with the many ways in which we can share God’s love even within our own community! Our dream is that this week will inspire youth for a life of serving and loving others. Service may include food sorting and packing, yardwork, visiting the elderly and home-bound, running programs for children living in a shelter, and more!

When: June 10-14, 2019 @ 1-4PM (2-5PM Friday)

Where: Local mission partners in the East Bay Area

Cost: $150
