Minnesota Presbyterian churches
New Life Presbyterian Church (Roseville), North Presbyterian Church (St. Paul) and Trinity Presbyterian Church (Woodbury) partnered for a youth mission trip that offered 18 youth, four adult volunteers and the three pastors an opportunity to explore social justice, environmental justice, stewardship and sustainability. Working together daily for a week, the group had daily morning worship, shared daily God sightings, worked in a community garden, made sandwiches for a homeless encampment in Minneapolis, visited George Floyd Square, met with leaders from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in the Longfellow neighborhood, learned about sustainability at Lily Springs Farm in Osceola, Wisconsin, and served at the Department of Indian Works in St. Paul by stocking shelves in their food pantry and sorting bags, clothing and toys.
As we reflected on Scripture daily, we were inspired by the call of the Holy Spirit to love each other profoundly, be generous and live gently in how we experience others and God’s creation.
— April M. Davis Campbell, pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church
