LOCAL MISSIONS

Our middle school students participate in a program called YouthServe.  Through this program they help serve dinner to the homeless at the United Way's Kitchen in Framingham.  There are, also, other opportunities throughout the year where they can serve.

Our high school students participate throughout the school year and summer in local service opportunities including at the Community Day Center in Waltham, with Family Promise in Natick and as part of the Concord Crop Walk which typically takes place in October.


MISSION TRIPS

In the summer of 2018 the high school youth traveled with other members of the church to the Philippines to work with Little Children of the Philippines in building or rehabilitating homes and working with their preschool program. Click see here to see an article in the Metrowest Daily News about the trip and click here to see an article in the Presbytery of Boston's newsletter.

In the Summer of 2017 the youth participated in a mission trip to Maine where they helped with MATE projects. MATE is a program to help rehabilitate homes for those in need in rural Maine.

Summer 2016 our Youth Group participated in a week long mission experience in Maine.  The dates were August 6-13 and some pretty big things happened. They served in a number of capacities including repairing homes, supporting a food pantry, visiting at a senior center and helping with a back to school effort for children. 

In summer 2015 many of our high school students were privileged to participate in an all-church mission trip to the Philippines.
