Mission At Our Doorstep 2015 is coming!
July 7-8 and August 19-22.
Thank you for all of your help during our July session!
Here is the August schedule – we will update as plans solidify.
The next installment of Mission At Our Doorstep will take place on Wednesday, August 19 at Avenues for Homeless Youth. On any night in Minnesota, 4,000 youth and young adults are homeless and on their own. More than 10,000 young people in Minnesota experience homelessness every year. Avenues for Homeless Youth provides emergency shelter, short-term housing and supportive services for homeless youth in a safe and nurturing environment. Through such service, Avenues seeks to help youth achieve their personal goals and make a positive transition into young adulthood.
Our plan for the day is as follows:
CLEAN UP THE YARD (10 am – 1 pm)
-Weed the gardens, sweep, pick up the trash on the grounds, and clean the outside of the building

Signup sheets are located on the back wall of the North Sanctuary. It is very important that you signup for this mission event.
There will be a project in the community during the day and a project at SpringHouse that evening.
We will work in someone’s yard that is in need of some TLC. If you know someone who could use this help, please let Pastor Laurie or one of the Mission & Outreach Team (Kirsten Cackoski, Pat Dunlop, Karen Kandik) know.
