This is a disciple-based trip on which Rusty St. Cyr will be discipling Spil Leaders and anyone else who has a heart for leading small groups (Lyfe Group Leaders-strongly encouraged to come). Come ready to fellowship with peers, spend time with Jesus, experience personal growth, and serve Twin Rocks Friends Camp with projects and cleaning that will help them prepare for the upcoming camp year.
Puyallup and Seattle with One Another Foundation: The main focus of our service would be in working with local Puyallup ministries helping with various project that benefit homeless and low income in the city. Volunteering would happen through existing organizations such as food banks, clothing banks, homeless shelter, a youth drop in center, etc. Service in Seattle and, or Tacoma is also expected. Expect to grow and learn with others in many different projects and atmospheres: some physical and some social.
