Sierra Service Project Trip 2016


High School Youth from Campbell UMC went on a mission trip with Sierra Service Project (SSP) from
July 3rd to July 9th.

There they joined other youth in repairing homes, serving the community, strengthening their faith and building relationships.

Check out photos of their work, excursions, and fun while at Smith River in northern California…

For the most part, Sierra Service Project (SSP) teams work SSP_2016_DrillHelperon homes in the communities they serve.  Occasionally, teams work on churches, community buildings, and schools in the hosting communities.  In addition, they sometimes participate  in other types of community service activities like community gardens when there is a need and the work is appropriate for youth work teams.  About one half of the projects in Smith River in 2015 were for community organizations.

For more information regarding Sierra Service Project, see their webpage.
