Youth help make all things new on mission trip

Y2K paints everything in sight at Angel House

In late July/early August the EPC Y2K youth group traveled to Fort Collins Colorado to participate in Group Workcamp's "Week of Hope."  The group spent the week serving the residents of Loveland and Fort Collins. 

The main project for the week was painting the headquarters of "Angel House" an organization that provides transitional housing and other services for homeless families. Some of our youth also helped out with a relief agency that provided food and other household goods to the victims of the nearby wildfire. 

But all work and no play would have been no fun. So if some of the paint went astray, so be it. The group also had a lot fun with games, ice skating and going to Water World on the way home.  

Next year's mission trip will be to the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. Compassionate outreach is one of the three most important things we do at EPC, with involvement by every age group. To find out more about EPC's efforts to show the deep love of God for all people, click here.
