As our youth ministry continues to show God’s
love through acts of service, we’re offering
weekly volunteer opportunities for our high
school students. This is the perfect way for our
teens to help those in need and enjoy
fellowship with First Church youth
members…while earning required service
hours for school!
One of our church’s outreach organizations is Beyond Our Walls, which is located in North
Charleston’s Dorchester Terrace neighborhood. Along with the alarmingly high number of atrisk children, the area is known as a “food desert” because of the lack of access to nutritious
food. Our youth will work with this phenomenal organization to tutor elementary students in
their after-school program, help in the planning and implementation of their new community
garden, as well as giving these precious children the consistent loving care that they deserve.
Sign-ups for our high schoolers are currently available for one-hour shifts. Please contact Jen
with any questions or ideas for additional youth volunteer experiences.
After 2 years on pause, this beloved mission is back to
repair, rebuild and restore homes of the needy across
Only 16 of the 43 camps will open this summer, so spots
are extremely limited. Let Jen know immediately if your
high school or college student would like to be a part of
this life-changing service in mid-late July.
