Music is an integral part of the worship experience at Washington Street — and it’s one of the many ways we express our gratitude and love for our Lord.
The Washington Street United Methodist Youth Fellowship (WSUMYF) is a close-knit vibrant group. Throughout the year, the WSUMYF participates in a variety of activities, spiritual retreats, and mission/ service projects. These events greatly impact the spiritual development of the youth so that they can mature with a strong faith and love for God. While these events are very beneficial, they can be costly. In order to relieve the financial burden of our youth and their families, we will be periodically hosting Equal Exchange fundraisers.
I recently traveled to Haiti with an organization called United Methodist Volunteers In Mission (UMVIM) to work in coordination with an orphanage/school called the Ryan Epps Home. The Ryan Epps Home is a small facility located in Croix De Bouquets and is home to approximately 130 students of which around 30 have residencies at the orphanage. Our goals for the trip were to aid in the construction of two or three houses that would serve as a home for families that work at the orphanage and also to spend time working at the orphanage with the children.
