Incredible Faith Mission:
Want to do something meaningful this summer?
How about a week of service and learning?
Incredible Days is a Covenanted Partner organization of the Southern New England Conference of The United Church of Christ, and is excited to be collaborating with the SNEUCC’s Edwards House Meeting and Retreat Center in Framingham, MA.
What is it?
Incredible Faith Mission: Boston will be filled with folks eager to experience a week of mission work in Boston. Participants will stay at the comfortable and accommodating Edwards House where you will eat and sleep but also get to reflect, play and enjoy the center’s amenities. We will commute into Greater Boston daily to do service projects focused on
addressing urban poverty. Throughout Boston proper, groups will work with
partner organizations to serve meals, sort donations and help at homeless
shelters. There will also be time put aside to allow for some cultural immersion and
fun time, where you can truly enjoy and appreciate Boston. Equally important,
we will have discussions where we learn how history has shaped urban poverty in
cities. Participants get the chance to both see and learn what poverty in Boston
looks like today and what can be done to help.
Who can participate?
Incredible Faith Mission: Boston is open to youth and intergenerational groups ages 14+.
People of every tradition and background hear the call to serve others and work for justice - Incredible Faith Mission: Boston is built around that call. Mission work allows us to put our beliefs into action, and helps people of all ages deepen their faith while living it. Incredible Faith Mission: Boston will be a week spent living in an intentional community of love and service. You will leave the week feeling transformed with new understandings of urban poverty.
