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 in 2018 included:

  • Taking children from the Homeless Shelter on field trips
  • Sorting and distributing clothes at the Homeless Prevention Center
  • Serving multiple families in need (sick, elderly, disabled) with yard work, cleaning, gutters, etc.
