Dear Ones of ORUCC,

We are so happy to announce that this year the youth from 7th -12th grade will participate in a Justice Mission Trip to Duluth, MN from Sunday July 9th to Saturday July 15th. We can ALL support this important ministry that enhances the WHOLE church and the world.

We all want to support our youth and chaperones as they raise money for this trip. Here are some ways the WHOLE church can support and participate in this essential ministry at Orchard Ridge:

Come to Culver’s on Mineral Point Road for dinner on Monday October 24th from 4pm-8pm. A percentage of proceeds will be donated to our youth mission trip. For youth and parents/chaperones who want to serve, there are still a few spots left!

Just for FUN, come to Treinen Farm Corn Maze & Bonfire in Lodi, WI, Friday October 21st 6:30-9:30

We have reserved our own bonfire area with benches and picnic tables. Feel free to bring your own food if you wish and we will provide s’mores! This area will serve as our home base while you enjoy and explore the farm, pumpkin patch, animals and maze.

To join us, purchase your own ticket at this website and upon arrival ask for the Orchard Ridge UCC Bonfire area.

On a personal note, I am so grateful to be part of this church that values our youth and doing justice in the world. It inspires to me to learn from the youth and seasoned chaperones about the life-long impact of this amazing tradition. I will be at each of these events as a pastoral presence and I so look forward to deepening in relationships with the youth and families in this time.

Blessings to you,

Pastor Julia

You can make a difference.
