Last Thursday, the Heartland Community Church Youth Group (FYSH) and Battle Ground United Methodist Church Youth Group (Larger than Life) assisted in cleaning the LUM emergency shelter and office building as well as gardening and outdoor chores. One group worked with the 5th Quarter students to harvest their garden—and all of the fresh produce was donated to the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry. To view more PHOTOs, click HERE.
This was part of their 4th annual Mission Lafayette service week, where a group of middle and high school students work together to serve the local community. Their goal is to give these young adults an opportunity to grow their faith through service work in their home town.
LUM is very thankful for the help from these two hard-working youth groups. LUM relies on groups like these to get most of our outside work done.
If your group is interested in helping out with yard-work or mowing the lawns, please email or call us (firstname.lastname@example.org | 765-423-2691).
Check out the video of their week of service in Lafayette. LUM appears around 4:56.
