Bruton's Youth Group is returning to West Virginia! From July 21-28, 2019, students will have the opportunity to work with the Appalachian South Folklife Center in developing the life of faith and serving those in need in and around Pipestem, WV. Our days will be framed by prayer and work as we strive to share God's love with those who are in need by working on residents' homes. After a week of hard work, we'll head to the New River Gorge to go rafting and to enjoy God's creation as we rest and fellowship together.
Ahead of our trip, those signed up will be required to get together a few times to build community and to learn about our work in West Virginia. These gatherings are essential to getting off to a good start!
The Appalachian South Folklife Center hosts groups like ours every year on their property for summer-time mission work. They accept applications from locals experiencing poverty, needing help with projects around their homes due to disability or lack of funds. The Folklife Center property is also a very peaceful place to be.
Our work projects will be chosen based on what we can manage to accomplish with the group we have. The Folklife Center provides us with support through professional directions, tools, safety, etc.
After working from Monday to Friday, we will head to the Ace Whitewater Resort for fun time at the lake and rafting on the New River. This time is also important spiritually as we talk about God's gift of rest (sabbath) and how we encounter God in creation. We hope you'll join us!
