SERVICE OVER SELF
Service Over Self is a one week youth-led mission project where the youth are fed and domiciled at CSUMC. The youth are divided into work teams and spend the week repairing homes for those in need in our community. We begin each week with a SOS Commissioning Service on Sunday night. On Thursday night, we have our family supper and closing worship service. The homeowners we have worked with all week are invited to attend our family supper and worship service. We plan fun activities for the youth in attendance on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights after supper. SOS Week always begins on Father's Day.
We are partnering with Micah's Mission to make learning centers and craft projects for the teachers and students.
HONDURAS MISSION TRIP
Every other summer we go to Pena Blanca, Honduras with Expanding Borders Ministry. While there, we have taught English in an elementary school, helped with construction of an orphanage, done SOS work on homes, taught Vacation Bible School, led Sports Camps, and taught health education to young mothers in the area. This trip is open to anyone high school age or older.
