CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.- “Who is my neighbor,”? is the question students from Sneedville, Tenn. will answer through a service learning visit to Chattanooga from March 27 to March 29, 2015.
On Friday, the Beth is organizing a youth lock-in for Sneedville students to spend time with their peers in inner-city Alton Park.
“Even though they live in different parts of the state and have different problems, we are bringing them together to help them find solutions to some of the struggles the students are dealing with, and to give back to both communities.”
On Saturday, Sneedville and Alton Park students will visit and feed the homeless at Miller Park, and give to the kids at the Chambliss Shelter for Children.
The purpose of the service learning trip is to show the kids that no matter how different their lives might seem, each of them still has the same need to experience and share love and the eternal hope found in Christ, regardless of who their neighbor is.
This past October, Beth Center students went to Sneedville to understand how their neighbors live.
The trip is part of a partnership program between the Jubilee Project, Inc. of Sneedville, Tennessee and the Bethlehem Center in Alton Park, Chattanooga.
The Bethlehem Center is a 94-year-old nonprofit organization that contributes to the community in a holistic way by offering literacy, character development, arts education, and leadership training to youth and families in South Chattanooga.
