Summer Mission Trip for Youth
Last summer, Bruton Parish's middle and high school students made the long journey to the mountains of Georgia to serve children of that area. For summer 2018, our travels will not take us as far but we will be serving a place where the needs are even greater. This June, our youth group heads to the mountains of West Virginia - to the heart of Appalachia - to serve those in need through the Appalachian South Folklife Center.
    The Folklife Center will host us on their beautiful property in Pipestem, West Virginia, and we will travel from there to help fix up the homes of folks who live nearby. Additionally, the Folklife Center will share with us programs on the people, culture, and history of Appalachia so we can gain a sense of those whom we serve and the land which they know and love. During this time, we'll engage in the prayers of the Daily Office from the Book of Common and Prayer and discuss our experiences as a group. Following the hard work, we will head to the New River Gorge to raft, swim, and have a good time for a couple of days. Current 6th-12th graders can sign up directly at bit.ly/brutonyouthmission2018.
    We hope you will keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we prepare for this journey of faith. Additionally, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 21 at 6pm for a big spaghetti dinner fundraiser to raise money for the trip. At the dinner, you will also be able to bid on different parts of the trip to offer specific support for our journey. Tickets will go on sale starting next year.
