Opportunities for Service & Missions
Loving God through serving others is our strength. We are always looking for more opportunities to serve. It challenges our youth and leaders to dig deeper, put others first, learn more about God, and grow in their faith and love for God.
JUP Youth serves in 3 areas: Worship, Local, and Beyond.
Serve In Worship
Worship is vital for our growth; therefore, JUP Youth, and our Children's Ministry, attend worship once a month for an intergenerational service. Everyone has the opportunity to serve in any area, including choir, liturgical dance, greeters, ushers, children's church, nursery, children's moments, liturgists, sound, media shout, and serving communion. Sign up sheet for next month is located on the Welcome Center in the Narthex/Lobby area.
In lieu of our Sunday morning meeting time on the first Sunday of every month, we will meet Sunday night 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM.
Our Spring Break Missions Trip, Keepin' It Local was a huge success. 22 youth and 4 adults kicked Spring Break off right and kept it local by sleeping and working at the church, homes, and surrounding community with service projects and random acts of kindness. Jobs included yard work, moving furniture, trimming palmetto trees at the church, harvesting and replanting a vegetable garden, replacing an existing butterfly garden, stocking our NIK room with enough food to feed 172 children for 5 weeks, prepping 3,000 eggs for our annual egg hunt, and making a pancake breakfast for the whole church. Our youth were also responsible for planning, purchasing, cooking, serving and cleaning up 4 meals for their peers.
Our Summer Missions Trip, Follow the Son was a BIG success. JUP Youth started with a beach sunrise right here on the East Coast and then followed the SUN across the state to see the sunset on Honeymoon Island on the West Coast while talking about and living out what it meant to Follow the SON. The group stopped at various stops along the way serving others and participating in mission opportunities.
Summer 2020 Missions Trip will be announced March 1st during our regularly JUP Youth gathering (5PM - 7PM). Dates will be June 20th - 26th. Parents will join us at 6:40 PM for an information meeting.
