2017 Youth Group Mission Trip

2017 Youth Mission Trip

 

Sixteen teens from our Youth Group participated in a week-long mission physically being the hands of God to help those in need.  Home base was the Crossroads Retreat Center with a different challenge each day: sorting food and repacking at the food bank of New Jersey, preparing and serving lunch at a soup kitchen, fishing with a family on respite, planting crops and weeding at a community farm.  Their reflections are expressed in this mission trip video.

Pedals for Progress (P4P)

St. John’s used bike & used working sewing machine collection for “Pedals for Progress” (P4P.org) will be Saturday MAY 5th from 9am-12pm. In the past YOU have provided life-changing help to over 1,000 families in 9 different countries by providing them with a bike or sewing machine as a result of our last 8 collections. Without your help this simply would not have happened. EXCITING NEWS! We anticipate receiving our 1,000th bike this year! We aim to collect some sewing machines & bikes ahead of the collection.
