“But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” I John 3:17-18
Are you interested in learning something about mission work? Are you looking to have fun while moving more deeply into a meaningful co-existence with all of God’s people? Then MissionWichita invites you to join us this summer as we explore what servant ministry looks like in an urban setting. During MissionWichita you will do the following:
- Learn more about poverty and mental illness.
- Volunteer work with Episcopal Social Services and local parishes. (And YES this will count as service hours if you are required to do some for school or a club.)
- Relax, hang-out and do fun activities in the evenings.
