SAVE THE DATE – SUNDAY, AUGUST 16
CBWC Youth Groups across Western Canada are invited to take part in a special one day SERVE at HOME event. Here are the basics:
1) Individuals and groups are encouraged to spend time on Sunday, August 16 SERVE-ing their local community
2) If you are looking for a meaningful and logistically simple way for your group to serve, consider the Canadian Baptist Ministries’ Active in Mission Walk/Bike/Run-a-thon
– Sadly 1.7 million people die each year as a result of diarrhea. Canadian Baptist Ministries is inviting you to stay active in mission by running/walking/biking to promote health and dignity for all. Money raised will help build composting latrines for those who do not have access to a safe and sanitary place to use the washroom. The cost of 1 life saving composting latrine is only $750. To find out more about the latrine project check out this short 2 minute video:
Includes live worship with Fraser Campbell, SERVE 2021 update, a special message from Louise and CBM, an interview with KURIOS director Steve and more.
SERVE | July 4-10, 2021 | Location TBD
Each summer hundreds of youth from British Columbia to Manitoba gather for a week to serve a Canadian community. Past locations have included places like Yellowknife, Flin Flon, Swift Current and High River. Last summer SERVE took place in Weyburn, Sask, where youth participated in service projects such as gardening, visiting senior’s homes, making meals and painting. In the evenings 250 youth and leaders gathered to share stories from the day, worship, play wild games, and hear from a dynamic speaker. SERVE is like the best parts of summer camp combined with the best parts of a short-term mission trip. Overall, youth hope to bless communities like Weyburn by demonstrating the love of Jesus through active service.
