Youth Summer Missions 2020


Side x Side and Hope @ Home are so much more than "work camp." Both have the purpose of being an outreach of Grace church to the communities in which we serve, and both give the opportunity for us to be the hands and feet of Jesus. In addition,

both also offer a path to discipleship.  

During Side x Side we share in morning devotions, serve together during the day, share meals together, engage in fellowship through silly games or social events, share in small group discussions, "build" leaders, pray together, and most importantly build community and relationships: both within our group and in the communities where we serve.  

Hope @ Home offers many of the same elements.  Side x Side tends to be more construction based (though no experience is necessary), while Hope @ Home has more varied serving opportunities.  

Grace youth and adults are invited to participate in both mission opportunities this summer.   Side x Side is open to all who have completed 8th grade through adults, and Hope @ Home is open to all who have completed 5th-7th grades and adults, with an opportunity for our high school and college students to serve as young adult leaders.

Side x Side: June 6-14
Hope @ Home : June 23-25
