Ark (Grades 7-8)
Our Ark Group is made up of youth in grades 7 & 8. These young people meet at least once a month. This group participates in a variety of activities throughout the year, including fun, fellowship activities as well as service and mission projects. Each summer this group goes on a mission trip somewhere within a few hours of Ivy Chapel. Past trips include Urban Mission Experience in South St. Louis, DuBois Center, a United Church of Christ Church Camp in Illinois, and Shannondale Community Center in Salem, Missouri. Some of their work included working in a food pantry, working with poor children, painting miles of fence, cleaning up a cemetary, and painting homes for those in need. They also enjoy fellowship time, team building and exploring their relationship with God.
