Four youth group members and two volunteer youth leaders spent the week of July 21 serving
as the hands and feet of Christ with Youth Works in downtown Denver. They spent the week
serving alongside other youth from around the country for organizations such as
Brothers Redevelopment, a Denver-based nonprofit organization that provides housing and a
variety of housing-related services for the region’s low-income, elderly and disabled residents.
They did house painting for 2 days, then served with the Boys and Girls Club of Denver for 2
days. They also spent time serving at Food Bank of the Rockies, David Clifton Ministries and in
a nursing home.
Summer mission trips are traditionally a meaningful path for the youth of FPCL to not only
serve as Christ served, but also to see God at work and strengthen/challenge their relationship
with God. According to one of the youth mission team leaders, “I continue to be pleased and
impressed at how hard our youth work when they’re on these trips, especially when the work is
hands-on such as painting, or working in a food pantry.”
Join the Mission Team in worship on Sunday, September 15 as they share their stories about
the trip with the congregation as a THANK YOU for continued prayerful and financial support of
this important annual ministry.
