This last Saturday, Succasunna United Methodist Church Middle School Youth Group hosted its Annual Christmas Bazaar.
This event helps you start your holiday shopping early, as the vendors representing jewelry, cosmetics, crafts, books, cooking, bags, baked goods and more. The $1 donation at the door helped support our youth participation in the Christian Outreach Project (christianoutreachproject.org).
More about the Christian Outreach Project:
The Christian Outreach Project is a non-profit organization, part of the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. For one week each summer, COP sends groups to houses in local communities to provide housing repairs to homeowners who are unable to handle the projects themselves.
For one week in June/July, teams of youth and adults from churches gather at the Camp Hoover Girl Scout Camp for a week spent in Christian fellowship providing house repairs during the day and participating in camp activities in the evening. Participants start each day with a time for reflection and prayer. After breakfast, they pack bag lunches and set out in work crews for job sites. While working on homes, many youths have the opportunity to interact and learn from their homeowners. After work participants enjoy dinner provided by local churches and return to camp for evening activities, singing, and worship.
