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.
