Becoming Disciples of Christ
"What are you looking for?"
• Jn 1:35-42
It is a question meant for all men of every time and in all places and situations. It is the question put to the two disciples by Jesus. What are you seeking? What is the purpose of your existence? Who are you looking for? As a community, teens are invited to explore their faith and grow in virtue through Christ's teachings.
Summer Mission Camps
We invite all teens to a summer mission camp that is life changing! We need to register in October because there are limited openings!
Matthew 25 Workcamp
June 22-26, $75
We travel in assigned Work Camp groups to assist in serving food, do yard or landscaping work, make/serve lunches, assist the elderly, paint and other service projects throughout the Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties. Work Campers will interact with the people they serve. They will also learn a lot about themselves, what Jesus teaches in Matthew chapter 25 and how serving the poor, homeless and needy can make a difference in their lives as well as in the lives of the people they serve.
