This year JM went on a ministry trip to Tamarack Valley.
JM Monday morning before he left for the trip.
Our church gives opportunity for both our middle school youth group and high school youth group to go on a ministry trip. The middle school does work service trips IN Michigan.
Tamarack Valley is a Christian Center with programming in Science and Nature Study, Times Past, Living Michigan History and camping for individuals, families and groups.
The group goes and freely gives their time for 5 days to do work projects. They chinked a log building, built a small building from beginning to end and cleaned up brush. They also went to a nursing home to spend time and sing to the patients.
This is a great opportunity for JM and the other students to spend time ministering to others! He had a great time working and serving others WITH his friends.
They returned on Friday afternoon. On Sunday evening they present what they did during the week to the church family.
