S@W Camp 2018 – June 16 – June 23
Servants At Work (S@W) is a week long servant ministry in Durham, North Carolina involving high school and college age youth and adult community leaders in upgrading housing, motivating community cooperative efforts by helping persons to help themselves, and providing all participants with opportunities for personal growth and service. S@W provides a mission opportunity for youth to experience “hands-on” discipleship. Jesus has called us to love our neighbor (Luke 10:29-37). S@W, as a ministry of McMannen United Methodist Church, was created to help youth experience Christian servant-hood. “And he said to all, ‘If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.’ ” (Luke 9:23) Many of our neighbors live in homes needing repair and/or accessibility improvements. Participants at S@W physically improve homes of needy families and reach out to these families and one another in friendship.
