This Summer, our Youth are coordinating an all-church local mission week we’re calling our “Staymission.” We decided that there’s plenty to do around here, and plenty of people to serve. We also have lots of students in our program who are holding down summer jobs and attending summer classes, so we wanted to give them the opportunity to serve without demanding they take “off” a week or more.

Sunday, June 27 we will gather for an all-church BBQ at the dinner hour in cooperation with the Outreach and Fellowship committees. Fellowship will assist our Youth in serving dinner and providing some entertainment. Outreach will facilitate a neighborhood walk-through so that SFPC can leave a little something fun for each resident to celebrate Independence Day and let them know all that SFPC has to offer them as a vibrant worshipping community.

Monday and Tuesday June 28 and 29 at 8:30 a.m. we will load up the van with able-bodied Youth and adult volunteers as well as the trailer with yard tools and other supplies and head to our members and friends houses to do some miscellaneous sprucing up. Monday at noon we will all go for lunch and a swim at Mitch’s house. Tuesday at noon we will have lunch at the church before we break for the day at 1:00.

Wednesday morning June 30 at 8:30 a.m. we will meet at church at 8:30 and head down to Urban Mission to volunteer for the morning. Afterward we’ll go for lunch and a swim at Laurel’s house.

Thursday morning we invite all of our youngest SFPC friends to join us! We will start out at the church assembling Essentials Bags for people in need. Then we’ll head to a park downtown to do some light clean-up and heavy playing. We’ll end our Staymission with a picnic at the park.  We’re really looking forward to staying home to serve our neighbors well. Join us!
