Invitation to Overflow! Come Join the Fun!
"We're on a Mission"
Grace Lutheran Church
Sunday, July 23- Friday, July 28, 2017 Join us for a week of worship, service, and friendship! High school and middle school youth are invited to sign up to stay at the Marshfield School forest for the week.
Here’s how it works: From Sunday afternoon through Friday morning, youth come to the Marshfield School Forest to stay in the bunkhouse. Adults join them in offering a mission experience of studying the Bible, serving through home maintenance projects and helping at various shelters for those in need, visiting the elderly, reaching out to our neighbors with a “Cookie Ministry”, offering a free Vacation Bible School program to kids age 11 and under, exploring the community with tours, supporting the local economy by eating out, and worshiping together around a campfire in the evening. Our schedule is packed with experiences you won’t want to miss!
Why be a part of Overflow 2017? Because Jesus gives us the command to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19). And Galatians 5:13-14 …serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” And how can we share God’s love with our community if we aren’t helping where help is needed and if we aren’t building relationships?
Who: 7th – 12th grade Youth (going into 7th grade in the fall through recent graduates) Adults welcome as chaperones and workers (background checks are required for all participating adults). Part of our goal for this mission trip is to help the teens participating to grow in their spiritual journey – we welcome adult volunteers who enjoy giving spiritual guidance and working alongside teenagers. Cost: $150 per person (your spot can be reserved with a $50 non-refundable deposit); Adults coming as chaperones –no charge. Goal: Mission week – serving the community and developing a deeper relationship with God and others When: Sunday afternoon at 1 PM, July 23 through Friday morning, July 28, 2017 Where: Marshfield School Forest, 11450 County Rd N, Marshfield, WI 54449. There is a lodge with bunk beds, woodland trails, a pond, and more! Here’s a link to the photo gallery: http://www.marshfieldschools.org/Page/484 Come and experience rural Marshfield, Wisconsin. We have fields, woods and as many cows as people!
Philippians 1:9 NLT I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.
