Middle School Mission Camp Recap
Hot, humid summer days (you know, the kind where Floridians know the heat is here to stay) didn’t stop MPC middle school students from being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. During this “at home” camp, 14 youth and 5 leaders spent each day serving people in need AND learning about the systemic issues that lead to poverty and homelessness in the community.
’22 Mission Camp in a Nutshell:
Monday: Participate in SPENT poverty simulation; shop for a family with limited resources
Tuesday: Tour Lincolnville with local family; visit the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center, learn about the civil rights history in St. Augustine
Wednesday: Cook a meal for residents of St. Francis House and Port in the Storm; deliver food to the St. Johns Ecumenical Food Pantry
Thursday: Clean up the beach with Matanzas River Keepers; learn what it means for MPC to be an “Earth Care congregation”
Friday: Sing and pray with Tom Eyerly of the MPC Outreach Committee; have fun at Top Golf after a big week of service
Young people lived out the “Matthew 25” call of Jesus by serving people in need. They are not only the future of the church, but a vital part of the present and MPC is proud of their service!
