Youth Choir: Fundraising for Germany Trip, Summer 2020
Our Youth Choir is going to Germany this coming June to nurture our ties with our partner congregations in Köln-Pesch and Weinheim. They will give concerts and lead music in worship in both churches, as well as sing in other locations. They will also make a pilgrimage to the cities of Munich and Worms to study the roots of anti-Semitism, the rise of Nazism, the Holocaust, and the role of Judaism in Germany today. They plan to spend time this spring in study and spiritual growth in preparation for this trip.
In an effort to raise funding for this trip, the Youth Choir is sponsoring the fundraising project, Hire-a-Youth. Please consider supporting these industrious young people by hiring them for projects you have in your home that you do not have the time for or that just need some additional hands. When a youth is hired for a job all proceeds will go directly to his/her trip account.
If you would like to support our Youth Choir’s trip to Germany but don’t have the need to Hire-a-Youth, you can donate directly to support this amazing opportunity for our children.
