Madison churches hold cooperative Youth Mission Project
MADISON, Ind. -- Youth of Madison churches undertook a cooperative effort to lend aid to local residents this past week, June 23-28. They combined their efforts and performed minor home repair for those in need of assistance. The project, called Madison Mission Week, invited all local churches to share their youth, donations for materials and meals for the workers. The Madison Consolidated High School hosted the youth in the cafeteria as a makeshift mission center and lodging area. Youth from various denominational faith traditions worked for a common goal of helping others. Madison Mission Week began with one teen's Question. Upon returning from a mission trip one local teen, Madison North United Methodist's Macky Hecox, asked, "Why don't we do this in our own town, for our own people? We just leave and never see them again. At home we could work and keep the connection as a beginning of a relationship, rather than leaving." The teams performed minor home repairs such as painting, landscape, roof and enjoyed fellowship and worship opportunities. The experience concluded with a celebration by the Ohio River in downtown Madison at Bicentennial Park with worship and a cookout Friday evening.
