There’s still time for 6th-12th grade youth to register for the 2019 Summer Youth Mission Trip to Milwaukee!

Registration Deadline – November 6th!

Our trip will be July 21-26, 2019 and once again we will be partnering with YouthWorks. All students who have completed 6th grade in spring 2019 through seniors who have graduated in the spring of 2019 are welcome to join us.

The cost of the trip is $324 per youth. If you are interested in learning more and potentially registering for the trip, contact Gloria.cox@pilgrimoakpark.org.

We’re looking forward to the mission trip next summer, but we’re not waiting until then to engage in service projects! This month our youth will be creating Thanksgiving Baskets for 3 of the local families served by Housing Forward. These baskets will include items to help each family round out their Thanksgiving feast, as well a few special treats.

Food and fellowship are just a few of the things that we’re all grateful for at this time of year, and it is out of this spirit of abundance that we want to help make the holiday a bit more special for some of our neighbors. We’re targeting to spend ~$50/basket, and if you’d like to support us by making a monetary donation, we’d gladly accept it! Contact Gloria.cox@pilgrimoakpark.org to help out.

Also, we’ll once again be sending a small "thinking of you" Advent season gift to those youth and young adults that we might not have a chance to see as often as we'd like. We want them to know that while they may be out of sight, they are still in our thoughts and prayers.

If you know of a young adult (think 18-24ish) that you think would like to be on my mailing list, please send their current name and address to Gloria.cox@pilgrimoakpark.org. by November 10th.

Advent will be here before we blink twice!
