Hope UMC Youth Mission trip
Thirteen high school youth and adults from Hope United Methodist Church, 2203 S. 3rd Avenue, recently spent a week in Minneapolis, MN. The group worked for the Urban Immersion Service Retreat which is in partnership with 25 service agencies through out the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. The agencies included homeless shelters, meal programs, clothing, food and furniture distribution centers, battered women's shelters, transitional housing facilities and summer youth programs. The Hope UMC mission team provided service based on the needs of the agencies they were assigned to each day. In addition to the service projects, the group spent each evening reflecting and learning about the struggles of people in poverty. At the end of the week, the mission team developed a service plan to help support and serve those in need within the Marshalltown area because as Christians we must follow Jesus' example of service to others. If anyone is interested in finding out more information about the Urban Immersion Service Retreat you are encouraged to contact the Hope UMC office.
