By the Summer 2019 Interns
Interning at the church this past summer has been an awesome adventure. Working alongside each other and the other staff members is something we will not forget. While taking part in all the events this year, we have been able to experience God in many different ways. As a group we really enjoyed the mission trips and Bible Times. As a staff of seven, we were split up for each mission trip but were able to grow in our faith. For the middle school mission trip, we helped build two decks. Seeing how dedicated and eager the middle school kids were to helping those in need was unbelievably gratifying. While on high school mission trip we renovated a 100-year-old church. From painting the walls and ceilings to hanging sheet rock, our youth were able to come together and work as a team. For most of us, this was our first time as adults on these trips. Getting to connect with the kids from this standpoint gave us a new appreciation for everything FUMC has done for us throughout our previous years as youth. We have all learned so much during this internship and have really grown in our faith. Thank you for giving us this opportunity, it is something we have truly enjoyed and will take with us as we return to college.
