July 10th - July 14th (Middle School Only)
“In the summer, we pull out the stops to make a week of service meaningful, memorable and fun. We hire top college students from all over the country to build friendships with participants, and skilled technical staff to oversee the home repairs at the sites. Our staff members share the message of God’s transforming love throughout the week. About 200 participants each week converge in Pittsburgh to join in our work, building servant leaders and upholding the dignity of vulnerable homeowners.” ~Pittsburgh Project

Youth For DC Cause
July 16th - July 21 (High School Only)
Youth 4 the DC Cause (Y4DCC) connects high and middle school students with under served communities throughout Washington. A typical day on Y4DCC begins with a group building activity in the morning, followed by a service-learning field trip in the afternoon. Each day ends with a time for reflection and Bible study that helps youth discover how their faith can lead to personal and social transformation.
This year we will be working with The Pilgrimage, an outreach ministry of Church of the Pilgrims in DuPont Circle.
Students can register for this trip by submitting their name, grade, and a $100 non-refundable deposit to Crossroads UMC.
July 31 - August 1 (Middle and High School)
Help guide a group of DC Elementary students through a 4 day version of VBS (Vacation Bible School). For more information or to register.
