The Youth Initiative is THRILLED to announce that we have a brand new program!
After much examination of our staffing, resources, and vision for the Youth Initiative, we are no longer offering Friday-Saturday overnight weekend experiences. In place of these weekend immersions, we will be offering Day Immersions that eliminate the overnight component.
Here’s why we’re so excited about this new program:
Day Immersions offer us flexibility and the opportunity to work together to make your experience with BSM exactly what your group needs – whether that’s a meaningful service opportunity, a critical examination of justice in Scripture, a worship experience, or even all of the above!
Day Immersions will work around BSM’s Breaking Bread schedule, meaning we can schedule your immersion any day we serve a meal – Monday through Saturday – from September through April. Following either serving or being served during a Breaking Bread meal with our guests, we can build your day to include any of the following: a theological reflection, a secular educational component, a prayer walk/mural tour of Center City, and a worship service. One of the most exciting things about the Day Immersions is that we can now offer them to church youth groups, regular volunteer groups, adult church committees, or even just a group of friends!
