Serve RVA: July 30-Aug 3

Coming out of the Boston Mission Trip last summer, the youth of Trinity wanted to create an opportunity to serve the needy in their hometown. Running with this idea, we have created the Serve RVA mission trip. During the first week of August, the youth will be serving the community through their work at the Pace Center, Central UMC, Shalom Farms, the Bellemeade Community Center, and Feedmore. Please be in prayer for the revitalization of the city of Richmond, as well as this inspiring young people who are looking to bring Christ into the city.

All of the groups began to understand how much is lost in each of these dire situations. This time spent learning about different ways to #LoveJusticeDoMercy gave us a new perspective on what we can do in our community.

Teens, nowadays! It’s not a new phenomenon that adults are befuddled by the choices teens make. For example, twenty-one Trinity teenagers and seven chaperones recently spent a week of their summer vacation in Boston serving the poor, the hungry, the homeless and the mourning. They chopped onions for a feeding ministry, they moved boxes for a housing ministry, they visited with the homeless who wanted nothing more than a conversation, and engaged with people who had lost loved ones.

A typical day meant rising before dawn, driving 2 miles away for a shower, squeezing in a quick breakfast,
preparing for the day with a devotion, and Read more
