MUMC Youth Complete Successful Mission Trip

Aug. 6, 2009

This past July, 12 young men and women from Mequon United Methodist Church, along with their adult leaders, traveled to Ashland, Montana to volunteer in a mission effort to assist residents of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation. The mission trip for the MUMC Youth was sponsored by GROUP Workcamps.

Over 400 youth from all over the country worked with the residents of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, providing assistance with needed roofing and painting projects, while also building wheelchair ramps for those needing access to various buildings within the reservation.

 

The Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation experiences extreme poverty as unemployment on the reservation is as high as 70%. The youth from MUMC arrived back to Mequon with great satisfaction of placing their christian faith into practice, providing great assistance to those in need, while making many life building memories and relationships with those they met amongst the workers and residents of this community.

 

If you have a young person who is interested in joining the MUMC youth group to aid in building their faith through action, the MUMC Youth Group provides many opportunities during the year besides the annual mission trip to assist those in need. Please call the MUMC church office at (262) 242-4770 for more information.
