U.S.E. ME (Urban Service Experience)
The U.S.E. ME ExperienceOver the last several years, Great Lakes Urban has hosted a wide variety of mission groups at the urban ministry sites of organizational partners. Some groups have been made up of mostly teenage youth or college-age adults, while others have been fully intergenerational. The purpose of hosting these short term teams is to provide a high quality serving experience that emphasizes personal learning, relational development, and collaborative work and blesses the community being served. GLU desires that all who participate will experience the power of doing ministry “with others” rather than simply doing things “for others”. Intended outcomes for all volunteers include:
In these difficult times as a church we have taken the challenge of a new beginning. This means we are going to the unknown to reach the lost and bless our community, in these past weeks in our church we have been hearing about Faith, we were invited to believe and have hope even if the circumstances says there is no hope. You and your group are the answer from God to our prayers. We are immensely grateful to God and with all of you for showing us your love, we would never forget your support and kindness, you will always be in our prayers.
Thank you brother Willy for being such a big help and getting to know us and letting us have a great stay and teaching us. You are very awesome and inspiring. Remember Jesus loves you and God bless.
On behalf of the International Village Block club and the Stockyard Community I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you. The time and service that the youth volunteers provided was ever so appreciated by us. You are always welcomed in our community.
