Participants will provide mercy-and-service work with Philadelphia Lutheran Ministries and its member congregations in that city.
NYG Servant Events provide a short-term opportunity for young people to serve their neighbor in a new setting, stretch their understanding of the talents and interests God has given them, and be encouraged in service by other LCMS Christians.
