YWAM Hot Chocolate Service Night

  • Meet at DPC at 6:20pm

Friday February 24th, we're going to meet at 65 Dorland at 6:20pm and walk together to the BART station at 16th and Mission. We will be serving at YWAM San Francisco at 357 Ellis St from 6:45-9/9:30pm and then BARTing back to church where pickup is at 10pm or if you need a ride, I'll be providing rides home. YWAM is a fabulous organization our church partners with and their experience working with youth ministries is extensive. Youth ministries from across the Bay Area and country come to YWAM for service projects throughout the year. Friday evenings they have a Hot Chocolate Ministry where they send teams out around the neighborhood and provide folks with a nice hot chocolate and the opportunity to pray for them. Each evening begins with a training/orientation  for the teams led by YWAM's experienced staff and there is a debrief afterwards as well. We will be holding our own debrief when we get back to DPC together that night. Our prayer is that it will be a valuable time to be stretched and grow as leaders and students alike.

**** Just for peace of mind, for safety reasons students are never sent out in groups without an adult from our church present who is leading the team.

What to Wear: Closed-toed, comfortable shoes and Layers.
What to Bring:
1. A DPC 2016/17 permission slip AND a YWAM Permission slip (click here for under 18 and here for over 18).
2. $3.90 for BART.
3. $5 for the cost of the service supplies. (DPC will cover the other $5 as it's $10 per person).
