School Supplies Outreach
This Summer we have been focusing on Service and Community at MISSIO Youth Group. As we prepared to end our summer, we sought the Lord for ways to serve the surrounding communities as they get ready for school. The School Supplies Outreach was developed out of that heart, giving us a chance to not only supply school materials for 185 incoming kindergarteners to the Berlin public school system, but also write messages of encouragement to each of the students and their families. Last week was our first week assigning and gathering supplies and we were greatly encouraged by the support we received! Our Wellspring family put showed a great hunger and desire to serve and supply whatever was needed. The original plan was to be assigning and collecting supplies for 2 Sundays, but all of the needed supplies were assigned and spoken for in just ONE day! We cannot express our gratitude enough to the Wellspring community. God has shown Himself to be faithful both to His people and through His people!
However, the job is not done yet! We will be collecting the assigned supplies for the next 2 Sundays (August 14 & 21). We also need more messages of encouragement to be written! So please stop by our table in the Cafe this Sunday to write one (or many) messages to one of the kindergarteners and their families! Thank you for coming alongside us as we try to build bridges with our surrounding communities!
Grace and Peace,
Director of Missio Youth Ministry
