Maine Missions Trip (MATE), July 29-August 4!

Let's keep them in our prayers as they conclude their trip and return home this weekend!
High School & College BBQ is this Sunday, August 5, 1pm-3pm! Don't miss a great chance to gather with your high school & college friends from our Youth Ministry community! We will be hanging out at the Clarks' home, grilling, catching up and enjoying summertime together...with a game of croquet probably thrown in too :-)
YouthServe Day at United Way Kitchen in Framingham, August 10, 4pm-7:30pm! Our middle school students will serve again at the United Way's Kitchen in Framingham on August 10. We will meet at PCIS at 4pm & return to PCIS at 7:30pm. We may stop for dessert on the way home, so please bring a few dollars for food.
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.
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.
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.
