On June 16 through June 21, Racine First UMC hosted 60 youth on mission from the Dakotas Annual Conference. The youth stayed and shared worship and fellowship with First UMC before heading out into the community to help many different organizations with work that needed to be done. They made repairs, served meals, and reached out to many communities that were in need of a willing hand to improve lives and structures. Jean Whiteside, Media Coordinator at First UMC, said, “We are very blessed to be able host this amazing group of young people and their chaperones. God works through the willing hands of our youth and His Spirit shines bright.”
