2017 Kingdom team dates
July 31–Aug. 4
Kingdom teams will partner with local organizations that are serving refugees and immigrants in Lancaster, Pa.
Participants will stay in a cross-cultural community setting at Immerse International in Millersville, Pa.
K-teams will serve refugees and immigrants in Lancaster alongside local community partners involved with the growing refugee population. Participants will learn simple discipleship and disciple-making principles for following Jesus in daily life. They will apply these discipleship and kingdom principles as they serve refugees and others.
Outreach activities may include serving refugee children and youth through clubs, crafts, tutoring, English conversation activities, sports and games, and other activities that build community and evidence the love of Christ. In collaboration with various community groups, EMM K-teams will provide such activities for newly arrived refugee youth in a summer school program, helping them practice their English skills and gain confidence in relating to others. Other activities may include prayer-walking, cultural learning experiences, and service projects such as setting up an apartment for an arriving refugee family, sorting donations, or other projects that benefit local organizations serving refugees.
