About the Sermon: What does it mean to take a break from our usual routines, and why can it be so freeing? Come hear from a Youth Group member about our spring 2023 service trip to Philadelphia and all the people we met, projects we worked on, and experiences we had, all the while considering how important it is for our spiritual health to try new things.
