Vacation Bible School
Each year children from the entire community and their friends join together for a week of stories, games, art, service work, science and lots of other fun stations. We focus on the key teachings of our faith and explore them through each activity.
Morrow Musical Theatre Camp
Students in grades 4-8 are invited to perform in our Morrow Theater Camp held in August of each year. All students entering grades 4-8 are invited to join. We spend a week putting together a musical as well as learning about an important issue in our community/world. We then put on several performances with the ticket proceeds supporting a group addressing the issue we've studied. Recipients have included those helping: new immigrants to our country, to build a school in Sierra Leone, to expand local after school programs, with earthquake relief.
Summer Student Leadership
Student leaders make our ministries run! College-aged, middle school and high School students can be student leaders for many of our summer ministries. They can lead Vacation Bible School, be assistant directors and camp directors at our theater camp, and can lead teams of volunteers for home repair projects. It fun and rewarding work in which students grown in administrative, leadership and organizational skills.
Home Repair Week
For one week in June/July, teams of youth and adults gather to provide home repairs in partnership with local family support groups. We work in areas around the country including locally in NJ and in different parts of Appalachia.
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, they have the opportunity to interact and learn from their home owners. After work, participants enjoy dinner, evening activities, singing, and worship.
Neighbor to Neighbor
Neighbor to Neighbor is a local summer home-repair program. Volunteer teams of adults and students provide home repairs free-of-charge to qualifying senior homeowners in the SOMA area. Students split into teams and spend the mornings working on the exterior of homes. Deck repair, painting, landscaping are the primary projects. There will be opportunities for afternoon activities and evening get-togethers for volunteers.
