Youth Missions and Activities
Youth Mission Week – July 11-16
“Stay where you are. Find your own Calcutta. Find the sick and lonely right where you are.”
— Mother Teresa
Youth and adults from John Wesley joined with those from First Isle of Palms, Aldersgate and St. Andrews Parrish Methodist churches for Youth Mission Week. They volunteered at sites at HomeWorks, TriCounty Family Ministries, LEARN Horse Rescue, Shifa Health Clinic, Beyond OUr Walls and East Cooper Community Outreach. Youth from middle school through high school worked together to make a difference in the community.
