Youth in mission

Elm Park United Methodist Church, Scranton, Pa., hosted a United Methodist Action Reach-Out Mission by Youth group from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut in July as part of a week-long mission event to reach out to the community of Scranton.

Projects completed by the young people included building two handicap ramps, providing and installing a chair lift, painting, trash removal, yard cleanup, and much more.

Elm Park church also hosted a dinner during the week for recipients of the services provided. Together with the mission team members they shared stories of their experiences through the week.

“The kids did so much more for us than just scrape and paint our deck and foundation; they gave themselves, their hearts. We shared devotions,” said recipients Joe and Carol.
