This past Sunday our senior class continued their interfaith education by visiting the Islamic Center in Plymouth! Fellow high school students at the center gave a fabulous presentation about the Islamic faith and what being a Muslim means to them! To the left is a very uncomfortable selfie taken by yours truly of our crew headed to become more culturally competent! Ask one of our seniors about their visit!

Work Crew is an opportunity for incoming 10th-outgoing 12th grade students. This is an opportunity for an extended service-based faith experience beyond camp. Each session devotes two camp sessions to serving God, the camp, and the campers. By doing much of the behind-the-scenes work that enables camp to run so smoothly, the participants learn how to give of themselves without seeking credit or praise. The Work Crew experience is the next step after a session at camp, in pursuit of a deeper understanding of faith and faithful living through the example of Jesus.

You may of heard of our Stepping Stones Family ministry. This year we are recreating, and amplifying that ministry and giving it a new name. MILESTONES is a re-newed learning opportunity for families with children creating a significant link between the church and home, while also fostering a sense of community among families.
The Parables Ministry will be launching a Parables Buddy Program on February 25, and we would love to have you join us. Parables is a Sunday morning worship service and ministry designed to empower people with disabilities and special needs. It’s a sacredly chaotic time where people of ALL abilities come together to celebrate who God uniquely created each of us to be. We have lots of opportunities to get involved— weekly to occasional events — with both long- and short- term commitments. We will provide all the necessary training. Smiles and hugs are a guarantee.
