Youth Group on Mission Trip to Appalachia, 06/2014
Youth Group on Mission Trip to Appalachia, 06/2014

This youth group is made up of young people from five faith communities around Juneau and Douglas, including Douglas Community United Methodist Church, Aldersgate United Methodist Church, Northern Light United Church, St. Brendan's Episcopal Church, and Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. We are also made up of young people who are from the greater community and include some who are not religiously affiliated. We respect and love people as God has called us to do, and                                                             most of all: we love to have fun!

Last week, we started the 21 day no complaining challenge. How are you doing? I am struggling!! 

This week, we will talk about living with intention and even setting our intention at the beginning and end of the day. We will also discuss the importance of intention behind the way we think, talk, act, and interact with others.

See you on Sunday for a meal, checkin, centering, and a game! :-)

*Reminder: No Youth Group Next Sunday!!

H i, I'm Laura and I am a part of the Cooperative Youth Group. (See photo of Laura and Andyn from the 2014 mission trip to Appalachia) This summer we are going on a mission trip to Costa Rica, where we will be doing work in the community. We will be doing construction work in the mornings, helping out with whatever is needed, and in the afternoons we will be working with the children in the community: doing activities with them, including tutoring in English and playing games with them.

This mission trip is important to me because not only do we get to go help out in a community in poverty, we also have the opportunity to experience an entirely different culture, and be in contact with people who we may have little in common with, so we get a chance to see and understand their situation and way of life. This opportunity to gain a worldly perspective is really helpful because when we come back we will have a stronger understanding of how to communicate and help people in situations different from our own.

It takes a lot for us to get to Costa Rica, so today I asking you to support our mission by donating Alaska Air Miles to help us get there. You can donate by filling out the form below.

Thank you! Our youth mission team to Costa Rica appreciates your support!
