Hometown Missions More Than a Weekend

Hometown Missions, our usual diocesan outreach weekend expands beyond just a weekend this year! Hometown Missions will take place Sunday, June 4 through Wednesday June 7 in Albany, Georgia. Diocesan Youth will come together with adults from the Albany Congregations to offer a Vacation-Bible-School-themed event for the children in the area around St. John’s and St. Mark’s, Albany. This area was one of the hardest hit in the tornados of the winter and spring, and there are very few activities for area children this summer since resources have had to be diverted to the clean-up and rebuilding efforts.
Youth who are currently in Grades 8-12 are encouraged to come to Albany to help work with these children, and to make a difference in their lives! Youth will lead children throughout each day’s activities, will spend parts of each evening preparing for the next day, and of course will take time to play and sing and spend time together!
Youth are asked to arrive in the afternoon on Sunday, June 4, and will need to be picked up on Wednesday, June 7, also in the afternoon. We will be sleeping at St. John’s and St. Mark’s, so youth will need to bring sleeping bags, pillows, and sleeping pads (optional) in addition to their usual packing.
The total cost for this four day event is just $90. Scholarships are available upon request. If you will be seeking a scholarship, please register and pay the deposit only and then contact Joshua Varner at jvarner@gaepiscopal.org To register, go here.
