Youth At Conference dig into mission
Three missions engaged 30 Youth At Conference (YAC), sixth-graders and older. Coordinator was Paul Corr of Alva.
They worked May 30 at Closer to the Earth, an urban farming project of the Community Youth Outreach program, on OKC-Quayle church property.
With a focus on environmental education, the youth-led project includes an organic garden, greenhouse, worm farm, and zero-landfill effort. The Oklahoma Conference’s Youth Service Fund (YSF) supports this project.
The youths also boxed 9,000 pounds of food for the Regional Food Bank and worked at a Habitat for Humanity house in southern Oklahoma City.
Mornings featured the mission experiences, with fun-center trips after lunch. Transportation was arranged by Elizabeth Jardine of Muskogee and Ann Browning of the Conference staff.
