Middle School Mission Week





Currently Registering!

Through June 30



Open to Completed Grades 6, 7, 8









Middle Schoolers at Mentor UMC look forward each year to Middle School Mission Week— a boredom zapper, community service, crazy fun and games, global fundraising, making new friends and learning about Jesus kind of week all rolled into one! 

A typical day looks like this: 

Sign In
Wake Up Rally and Mixer
Announcements
Worship
Devotion
Project and Lunch
Discussion and Snack
Group Game
Repeat!

We plan a different activity for each day, and most students find they have the best time when they come the whole week.  You may omit a day if you can’t be there. These projects are what we have lined up for this year Mon - Thurs (4 hours per day will count toward service hours): 

  • Deepwood
  • Shoes and Clothes for Kids Inc.
  • Greater Cleveland Food Bank (sorting and repacking non-perishable food) OR MedWish* (expiration checking and sorting donated medical items)  *must be 13 yrs or older
  • Painesville Catalyst Adventure and Shoe Distribution
  • Liberia, Africa Car Wash Fundraiser (learn about Liberian Youth and raise funds for school fees)


Let’s not forget the Games, Prizes, Fun ‘n’ Stuff day on Friday, Overnight, Food and more!  It’s an unforgettable week, and it’s a fun way to give back just a little. We have so much.  Please pray that we can bring the love and healing of God to those we serve, and be changed ourselves in the process.
