Service Experiences

Each Immerse week is different, partly due to the variety of needs, and partly due to the skills and interests of each Immerse group. For example, if we have a group of students passionate and skilled in soccer, we may have them lead a 2-hour skills’n’drills tournament for at-risk kids at a neighborhood community center. If we have a group of kids passionate about art, we may have them hear a testimony from a local Christian artist and volunteer in the F Street Church art studio. Some of the Immerse experiences that we anticipate for 2018 include:

-Providing childcare and serving a meal at the People City Mission
