Spirit of Hope Youth Group Helps Peace Lutheran with Outreach Program

From July 20-31, 10 youth and 4 adult chaperones from Spirit of Hope Lutheran Church in Parker, CO went on a Mission Trip to Gulf Shores, AL to help Peace Lutheran Church LCMC with their Vacation Bible School and Back to School Outreach program.
The people of Peace Lutheran Church have been reaching out to families in their community who have experienced difficulty due to natural disasters and the BP gulf oil spill. 
The youth at Spirit of Hope were eager to take part in the missions trip.  Although their church is currently undergoing a building project, the Youth Mission Team held fundraisers, eventually earning enough money to go on the trip. 

Youth Mission Team members are Blayze and Dakota Fittje, Courtney Giles, Chloe and Nick Lehnerz, Chrissy Nefe, Dylan and Tiffany Poch, Gregory and Sarah West, along with adult chaperones Pastor Dave Fisher, Cathy Meyer, Glenn and Wendy Poch traveled from Colorado to Alabama by car.
Along the way, the team was offered food and a place to stop for the night by Trinity United Methodist Church of Muldrow and Roland OK. 

When they arrived, members from both churches came together, putting their musical, theatrical, organizational and leadership skills together to host Vacation Bible School at Peace Lutheran.

At the conclusion of the program, participants received tote bags full of school supplies and school uniforms.

    We at Spirit of Hope are extremely grateful not only to God for this opportunity but also the outstanding sisters and brothers in Christ at Peace Lutheran. Their hospitality and kindness to us was incredible! Praise God for being in LCMC and getting to network in this way. Pastor Dave Fisher, Spirit of Hope Lutheran Church, Parker, CO
