On Sunday, January 20 at 4:00 p.m. through Monday, January 21 about 11:00 a.m., our 10th-12th grade youth will have a MLK Lock-In for Service. The group will begin this Lock-In by attending the MLK Evensong together. We’ll get some pizza for dinner and then we’ll get to work painting the Catacombs of the church (church basement). In this space at St. James’s, dozens of AA, Al-anon, and related support groups meet each week to support people through their recovery. Really important ministry and holy work takes place in this space but the room is in dire need of some fresh paint, flooring, and baseboards, among other things.
We’ll enjoy lots of fun music, social time, food, and we’ll sleep in Michaux House classrooms overnight. Youth can earn 6-8 hours of community service too!
