High School Spring Break in Los Angeles

Memorial Presbyterian Church Youth Ministry is headed to L.A. with high school youth for an amazing week discovering the intersection between faith and service with DOOR!

In the evening we will be challenged to consider our service experience as worship, reflect on our day, and examine how the Gospel asks us to respond to injustice.

Cost of $250 (scholarships available) includes airfare, lodging, meals, and guided program.

Forms and non-refundable $150 deposit due by Dec. 1st

For more information on the organization who will be leading us visit the DOOR Los Angeles site.

Blue Light Service
Dec

6:00 PM18:00

Blue Light Service

Project Blue Light is a nationwide recognition of those law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. It began in 1988 in Philadelphia when Dolly Craig wrote a letter to COPS (Concerns of Police Survivors) stating that she would be honoring her late son-in-law, Philadelphia Police Officer Danny Gleason, during the holiday season by placing a blue light in her window. Project Blue Light of Midland County has expanded this recognition to honor, revere and remember law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other emergency service personnel who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We thank you, and we salute you. You are invited to stay for a reception immediately following the Blue Light Service.
