These youth/young adults will walk along side of a peer mentor for this5-day event that includes worship, small groups, volunteering at worksites, and community building events. It is a week for youth working together to serve God, and grow and develop in their faith. Special Needs SERVE is run through Youth Unlimited, and will be hosted in Fruitland with support from area churches.
