 Requirements to join:

  3. Want to work and serve others!

Why did we start a SWS Youth group?  

We realized that the older kids needed more responsibility and time.  They are always helping and serving the little people at our normal projects and this is very powerful and helpful but they want to fly.  So, we're giving them the chance to fly and have time to finish their projects quickly and efficiently without having to stop.  Let's see what these kids can do!

This group will meet one hour earlier than the normal project plus monthly projects held at a hosts home.  If they would like to sew, they will be required to bring their own sewing machine.  Some projects that we have are:  origami, sewing a quilt, baby blankets, baby burp rags, baby slings, diapers, hat looms, wooden toy blocks, bead geckos and piece quilting.  The sky is the limit!
