On Sunday, November 6, youth and their adult sponsors from six St. Louis area Disciples congregations gathered to get to know one another, learn, and participate in a mission project. The event, held at Union Avenue Christian Church, included youth and adults from Affton, Community, Compton Heights, Liberation, Union Avenue, and Webster Groves Christian Churches.
The group learned about St. Louis Winter Outreach – a program serving homeless people in St. Louis - and assembled personal care kits for residents of a new Winter Outreach facility. Items for these care kits were donated by members of each of the participating congregations. These congregations hope to work with one another and other St. Louis area Disciples congregations to share youth ministry programming in the coming months.
