Spring Service Saturdays

Service Saturday 2

Stretch your muscles, get a little dirty and make a difference! Help spruce up the grounds for our busy spring and summer seasons. We can’t do it without YOU! We’re hosting two spring work days on March 24 and April 21 – we’ll gather at about 8:30 a.m. and work will be completed by 4 p.m.

Projects vary, depending on the weather and the skills of the workers – carpentry, cleaning, painting, raking and more. We may even remove or install a dock. Serve together with friends and family and gain a sense of satisfaction. Lunch is provided. These are the perfect days for adult church groups, families, friends or even individuals!

Check out this flyer for more information. RSVP to DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202. Can’t make it out on one of these days, but want to help? Let us know – we welcome planned service days for groups throughout the year.

Buddy to Buddy Mission Experience – June 30 – July 3

Buddy to Buddy Experience Blog 1_16_18

This close-to-home mission experience June 30 – July 3 offers teens the opportunity to “live kindness, do justice and walk humbly.”

Youth (completed grades 8-12) buddy up with one or two young people from Hoyleton’s youth residential programs and share in crafts, nature hikes, dock swims, canoeing and more with their new friends. When the Hoyleton campers head home each day, buddies and their chaperones reflect on their experiences, plan for the next day and tackle a work project before relaxing, playing and enjoying their favorite camp activities.

Participation is by church or region group, as opposed to “open enrollment” like summer camp. Chaperones (age 21 and older) provide overall supervision for their youth. Click here to learn more or contact Shirley at DuBois Center at shirley.director@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202.
