Learn & Serve: Goodbye Summer!
As summer ends and school is starting back, Learn & Serve (L&S) would like to thank all of our participants for making L&S Summer Experience 2013 such an amazing program! During our seven sessions, we had 393 participants from eight states across the southeast and midwest.
Participants joined us in learning about missions through messages, studying scripture and small group time. Our teaching focused on the idea that missions is more than a once-a-year trip–God calls us to be in mission to those around us every day. Youth and their leaders also had the opportunity to learn about life in developing countries through appropriate technology teachings and our experiential learning programs, including the Global Village Experience, Refugee Camp Experience and Urban Slum Experience.
We will be sharing more stories and highlights from L&S Summer 2013, so continue to check the blog for updates!
