2016 Mission At Our Doorstep will take place July 18-23. 2016 Mission At Our Doorstep Booklet
July 18-23 will be our 4th annual Mission At Our Doorstep, a week where you can participate in a Mission Trip without leaving the Twin Cities. As always, we will have a variety of activities with a variety of organizations. We always plan mission opportunities for all ages and all skill levels.
This year we will use Monday, July 18 as a day for the Mission Team to make sure we have everything we need to make your time well spent, as well as an opportunity for sewing bags. Beginning on Tuesday, July 19, we will have mission opportunities during the day and in the evenings. We will be putting together Hygiene Kits, Clean Up Kits and School Kits for Church World Service; lunch bags and sandwiches for Simpson Shelter; decorating Meals on Wheels bags; supplying and filling backpacks for Youth Links and for elementary students; handing out lemonade and dog treats in front of SpringHouse; putting together Bags of Grace; and making sandwiches for the Dignity Center. We will be asking for donations of items and/or money for many of these activities.
We have several mission opportunities that will happen away from SpringHouse. On Wednesday, July 20, we will help Sunrise Bank with their Habitat Build. We will need all who are able to be a part of this exciting addition to our week. We will also participate in a packing session at Feed My Starving Children on Thursday, July 21, in the evening. On Friday, we will gather at Hopewell Music Cooperative in North Minneapolis and do whatever they need done. Brianna Farah, our Soprano Section Leader, is the Executive Director of Hopewell. We will end the week by spending time on Saturday, July 23, at Avenues for Homeless Youth helping out in any way that we can.
The Mission and Outreach Team is very excited about Mission At Our Doorstep 2016. Much work and many decisions go into planning the week and the team has done an outstanding job this year. We will be putting a booklet together that has all of the information you will need to fully participate during the week. We will also have a list of the supplies needed for the different mission opportunities.
