Service. Slides. Skittles. Slillyness. Slumber Party. This will definitely be the highlight of your summer! We’ve partnered with 7-8 churches in Oregon to show God’s love to our Portland Community. Each morning we’ll break into groups and serve at a variety of non-profits in Portland. We’ll meet back up each afternoon and visit a new swimming hole each afternoon. We’ll finish each evening with games, God’s Word and gabbing.
WHEN: Sunday, July 30 – Thursday, August 3, 2017. Will begin after dinner on Sunday and conclude after breakfast on Thursday.
THEME: "Justice Matters." Our main focus scripture for the week will be the story of the persistent widow in Luke 18:1-8.
HOST LOCATION: First Presbyterian Church (1200 SW Alder St. Portland, OR 97205). They have an amazing commercial kitchen, tons of bathrooms and multiple floors so boys and girls will sleep on seperate floors.
COST: $175/participant. We’ll be doing several fundraisers to off-set the cost for families that need financial assistance. Let’s work together if finances are a challenge. We want you to be there!
WHAT TO BRING: Sleeping mats/air mattresses, sleeping bag, pillows, extra clothes, toiletries, towel, swim clothes, bible.
WHO TO BRING: Your friends. It doesn’t matter if they’re Christian or not. They’ll have a blast and know they’re making a positive difference.
DEADLINES: $100 non-refundable deposit due per youth by Sunday, March 26th (Make checks out to Intown Church and hand them to Jillianne). The remaining balance is due by Sunday, June 18th (minus any fundraising).
NEEDS: We need an adult male chaperone willing to serve all four days to help us drive our students to each location (or at least 2 days and we can split it). We could also use a couple high school youth leaders who want to help serve and plan some silly games.
Note, pick-up and drop-off times may be modified as we get closer to the event (+/- ~1 hour).
