ABOUT THE GROUP:
This group is for High School youth from 9th grade through 12th grade. It is ecumenical, which means it involves youth from local churches of varied denominations. The group is called the N.E.W.S (Newtown Ecumenical Workcamp Servants) because through the years we try to serve people in the North, East, West, and South. Our members are lovingly known as "workcampers".
Each year a service trip is planned to take place during a weekin the summer. Planning and fundraising for the trip is a year-long process for these youth, but it is all worthwhile when they learn how they can improve the living conditions, the spirits, and even the faith of the people they work for.
For the 2018 Service Trip our NEWS plan to assist in the rebuilding of homes and residents' spirits in Biloxi, Mississippi through the Back Bay Mission.
