Junior High I
Leaders: A mission trip where all you have to do is sign people up!
Camp Greenwood and Retreat Center, located 30 minutes northeast of Grand Rapids, MI, consisting of 240 acres located on 5 interconnecting lakes, is excited to offer youth and leaders the opportunity to SERVE God’s less fortunate. Starting Sunday, June 24 – 30 is SERVE Week. Serve will consist of 2 camps in 1 week. Junior high kids will work and small group together, while senior high will do the same. Then we will come together for eating, playtime, praise and worship. Youth and their leaders will descend on this wooded, yet modern property to celebrate God’s goodness. Sunday evening starts with a mass meeting to include praise, worship and a motivational speaker, setting the tone for the week. Participants will stay in modern cabins complete with a bathroom and shower. Meals are served in the dining hall overlooking Woodbecks all sports lake. After breakfast and individual quiet time, participants will get in vehicles to SERVE in Grand Rapids, Rockford and Greenville. Projects will include small construction, Servant-Evangelism, street ministry to homeless and runaway kids, working at a soup kitchen, Salvation Army, a food bank, nursing homes brightening the day of elderly people and various other ministries located in Kent County. Our goal is to provide a ministry of touching people by touching their lives. When you return from your SERVEsite your stay at Camp Greenwood will include free time to use our sail boats, kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, pontoon boat and fishing craft. Use your free time to enjoy archery, volleyball, soccer, hike the many trails on our property. Use a 3 story floating iceberg or just rest. Each evening we gather to share how we saw God at work throughout the day, praise and worship Him and listen to an awesome speaker. The highly energetic staff at Greenwood is anxious to make this the best week of loving God and His children. After four days of SERVing God by SERVing others, we will celebrate our unity by going to the pristine shores of Lake Michigan in Grand Haven. In the evening we will return to camp for a closing ceremony, a good night’s sleep and depart on Saturday by 9 AM.
