to Mar 30

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 addition to some sightseeing and exploring, we will serve with a variety of populations hearing the stories and witnessing the struggles and vitality of agency clients. 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.
