Local Mission Events
Mission Earth
Each fall, we invite middle and high school youth groups to join us for a day of service and learning in partnership with Creation Care Alliance.  We work at a variety of local agencies and learn about how our beliefs impact the way we care for our neighbors and our planet.  
Midnight Manna
In February, local high schoolers join us for “Midnight Manna”, an evening spent working at Manna Food Bank and learning about food insecurity in WNC.  There is typically a local youth band, great food to share and lots of fun and fellowship.
