MORTON, Ill., — Sixth, seventh and eighth graders are participating in Mission survivor for the 12th year.
It’s an opportunity for junior high students to learn, grow and develop in their faith while serving the Morton community.
Students will be sleeping in tents at Fox Farms in Morton throughout the week.
Their daily activities consist of serving those who serve others in need.
They will cook a meal at a soup kitchen, volunteer at a food pantry, sort clothes at thrift stores, and more.
Teach [them] young. If they start out young they grow up knowing who they are and whose they are and the connection between all of humanity knowing that it takes service and servant nature to get close to who God is.Gabriel Wanck, Associate pastor of Morton United Methodist Church
The kids will be serving the community until Wednesday this week.
Registration is closed, but opens back up next summer and is available to anyone interested.
