Mission 5 to 5000

October 14, 2017

How hard is it to live on low, fixed income?

In "early" October, Ottawa's youth came together for a Mission 5 to 5000 activity. They learned a bit about the challenges of living in Ottawa on limited income, and were challenged on what the Bible had to say about those living near or in poverty.

Then it was off to the grocery store! Each youth had $2 to shop for dinner. They quickly pooled their resources and cooked a FANTASTIC dinner! They also discovered something that many poor people already know ... community and fellowship!

EXTRA BONUS! Youth also helped plan youth events in 2018.

Leading with Care

October 12, 2017

In early October, some of Ottawa's youth leaders came together to learn about the church's Leading with Care policy.

We covered a lot of material - including why the issue is so important and what possible ramifications exist for not following the policy but most importantly, people shared examples from their own experiences and how they dealt with some of the challenges.

All in all - people found it useful. More workshops will be scheduled for 2018!
