SOJO 2019 INTERNATIONAL TRIP: JUNE 14-30, 2019
Service, Sabbath & Study
The 2019 trip will be organized around the themes of Service, Sabbath, and Study as follows:
Service: We will spend a week in Crișcior, Romania at Casa Emanuel Home. Here will we lead a VBS, share in the life and activities of the children at the home, and also complete various facilities and maintenance projects around the home such as painting and landscaping.
Sabbath: Drawing on the traditions of Christian pilgrimage, we will hike portions of the Lutherweg (The Luther Trail) in Germany and reflect on our Christian faith as a journey.
Study: We will visit several historical sites which were significant in the life of Martin Luther and the Reformation – Erfurt, Stotternheim, Eisleben, Wartburg, Eisenach, and Wittenberg.
This trip is for graduating 9th through 12th graders who are active participants in the youth program at Southminster. The cost of the trip is $3,850 per person. Students will have the opportunity to participate in three church fundraisers and apply for a scholarship up to $500.
If interested, students must complete a trip application and submit it no later than Wednesday, October 31, 2018. Applications are available online - CLICK HERE - and in the Church Office.
Please contact Karl at firstname.lastname@example.org or Pastor Tara at email@example.com for more information.
Sojo is invited to prepare and serve breakfast at the East Liberty Men’s Shelter once a month. This opportunity to serve brings together the Southminster family of all ages. Contact Jeff Bragdon (412) 600-4675 if you are interested in joining the team. Carpools meet in the upper parking lot promptly at 6 a.m. and return to the church in time for Church School Hour. Out-of-school community service hours can be granted.
