My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. You’re deeply rooted in him. You’re well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you’ve been taught. School’s out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving.
Colossians 2:6–7 The Message
Our congregation sponsors participation in Church of the Brethren work camps. These week-long service opportunities are held in numerous locations around the world, and are an opportunity for youth, young adults, and entire families to travel beyond the familiar surroundings of home and encounter life and service in another context.
