What The Edge did this Summer...
This past summer The Edge had 13 participants who were challenged all summer to put their faith into action. We did service projects at 5 different churches which included landscaping at Northwest Foursquare Church in Federal Way and Lifepoint Church in Des Moines. We teamed up with the youth interns from Grace Church in Federal Way and cleaned up around a low income apartment complex. On one afternoon we helped Lake Sammamish Foursquare Church in Bellevue reorganize their closets and classrooms. Lastly on a summer evening we assisted New Hope Seattle in Shoreline host a community outreach event.
Not only did the students learn to serve other churches, but they also helped in their local community. We distributed hundreds of fliers advertising our 1st ever Fireworks stand; as well as volunteering countless hours at the Fireworks stand the week before July 4th. Each week this group of students made sure Uturn was setup and ready for our weekly service and assisted in the cleanup process.

Over the course of the summer they also had great group discussions which included such topics as servant leadership, being a leader at home, conflict resolution, spiritual gifts, salvation and personal mission statements. All of our students were challenged to articulate their faith and were better prepared to lead not only in Uturn JH but also in their homes and schools.

Hopefully you won't miss out on this upcoming opportunity to get more involved with Uturn JH. Sign up for the Fall Season of The Edge.
