Congratulations to the Youth Group and Leaders for a job well done.

Trips like this are not vacations. They are so much more! These experiences show us what is possible and challenge us to examine the paths we take in the life.

Plans are underway for the FUMC “mission trip”, which will be taking place at the Family Promise Day Center at 3 Holley St. in Lyons on July 28 (yes, a Tuesday) – July 31st.  This is not just a youth project, so we’d love to have any adults pitch in when they can!  There is a large outdoor area behind the house where most of the work will be taking place, so we should be able to safely physically (but not socially!) distance while working.  Please bring a mask, also.  I will have hand sanitizer readily available outside and there is a bathroom inside for hand washing.  

The plan is to meet there each day at 9:30 and work to about 3:30, however if the weather is forecast to be excessively hot, we may adjust the time earlier so that we’re doing more work in the morning and less work in the hot afternoon.  Projects will include creating a seating area behind the house with pavers and a picnic table/benches, painting a long ramp, and fencing in a play area.  Bring any of your favorite tools that might be helpful for these projects.
