Join us for City Week! City Week is a 4-day mission trip for teens and adults. It offers four days of amazing transformation, serving at Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County (UGM). Participants will be a part of the daily rhythms of UGM, having opportunities to prepare and serve meals, lead worship services, work with children and families and much more. City Week will be held on July 26-29 at UGM from 8:30 am – 3 pm daily. Participants will drive to and from UGM each day. You don’t have to attend every day.
What makes City Week special is the connection that St. Martin’s has built over the years with UGM through prayerful giving and making and delivering sack lunches to the mission. Coming to UGM for a week, St. Martin’s teens and adults see the impact, and build even stronger ties by getting to know volunteers and staff. Our people get a chance to work directly with the children, teens and adults at UGM. St. Martin’s clergy will participate each day with our teens and adults.
