Project Serve is an exciting opportunity for youth from grade 9 to grade 12 who want to learn about living life with a serving attitude. We base our teaching on the Bible, and we will talk about topics like: team work, world view, who is God, self-worth, compassion, servant leadership and more. There will be faith based conversations, but the youth are not required to believe. They only need to be willing to participate in the conversations. We believe that faith is important enough that everyone needs to explore it and come to a decision about it.
How often do we meet and what do we do: We meet every two weeks where we have teaching, team building exercises, and small groups. We look for ways to serve our community together as a team, and we challenge each of the youth with specific “serving opportunities”. As part of the program we also go on a serving trip to Winnipeg where we work alongside an urban mission, and a longer mission trip to a foreign country.
Cost: The total cost for the program, including the trips to Winnipeg and abroad, will be appr. $2800. We will do fundraisers together to help with the cost.
