Toledo Area Conference Mission Partner congregations have established an innovative mission opportunity for ANY group from your congregation – Adult Bible Study groups, Youth groups, Inter-generational Groups…Come for a day or the whole week!
Through this mission opportunity participants will: experience Morning Blessings at St. Paul’s and the weekly Agape meal at Salem, both in downtown Toledo; eat at Cindy’s Corner Cafe at St. Lucas in the South end where there is a free lunch every day; help distribute groceries at Redeemer’s Feed Your Neighbor food pantry on the near west side of Toledo, and go shopping at Glenwood’s Giving Store – a free store near down town Toledo; take walks to learn about the homeless community and/or participate in youth enrichment activities with kids that face the reality of poverty every day.
Remember Jesus said “you will always have the poor with you” and that our Lord came to proclaim “good news” to the poor. Immerse yourself (or your ministry group) into a mission trip that truly shows how the riches of faith are present even when the wealth of the world is absent! Summer in the City is a life-transforming experience that will take your faith on a journey of enrichment and growth like no other in SUMMER 2015
Congregation hosts are: Redeemer, Toledo and Salem, Toledo, together with Glenwood, Toledo, Olivet, Sylvania, St. Lucas, Toledo and St. Paul, Toledo.
