GO YOUR OWN WAY

We will design a justice-based program just for you! Tell us when, where, for whom and  how long!

On Friday March 13th as our province of NL was shutting down as the Covid-19 pandemic came to our doorstep, my very involved 10 year old came home from school sad and scared.  Her busy life of school, Girl Guide meetings, after-school basketball practice, figure skating lessons, church youth group and Kindness Club at school – the things she loves about life and gets to enjoy with her friends, were shutting down as fast as could be and there was a slight panic in our household.  The Spring Virtual GO Camp saved us during the Winter and Spring months of the pandemic.  What started out as a week turned into the whole Spring and we are forever grateful. GO Camp brought schedule to our rudderless days and helped her be in contact with people her own age when she missed her own friends so much. She did not have to think about pandemic stuff for that hour spent with new friends in faith from across the country each day. Your work and time spent with our kids has truly been a lifeline and the truest proof of God’s love through Jesus being shared by the power of the Holy Spirit.  We cannot say thanks enough to you for rescuing our daughter from the isolation of the pandemic and for reminding her of this wonderful United Church to which she belongs as God’s family loving and supporting her – even from a distance.”

The GO Project

 

The GO Project started at Islington United Church over 10 years ago, out of a desire from the youth group at the time to go on a mission trip. They found it difficult to find an organization that fit with their understanding of theology and our call as Christians to be the hands and feet of this world while being radically welcoming. The youth, along with their fearless minister, Michael Shewburg created their own trip, in their own backyard, and in the years to follow invited others to join their journey.

Over our 10 years of ministry within the United Church, The GO Project has run youth programs in seven cities, and children’s adventure camps in over twenty cities and towns across the country.

Lent Series: Clare

“The GO Project is not only a community where I am inspired to be better, GO actively fosters a space for me and everyone involved to grow into our best selves. Every year that I am part of GO, I finish the summer with some added perspective that changes the way I look at our world and how we live in it, and in September, I return to school fuelled by the memories of moments that changed my perspective and brightened my life.” – Clare

Lent Series: Lauren

“The GO Project had a huge impact on me as a young leader. It was working on farms and community gardens with GO that I first fell in love with tending and nurturing the path – which is now a daily practice for me with farming.” – Lauren

Lent Series: Rebecca

“The people I have met through this program helped me learn about intentional relationships, about the world and the greatness we all carry within. The GO Project is a major part of who I am today, of the relationship I have with God and I carry the work of GO and all the people I get to call friends with me in all that I do.” – Rebecca

Lent Series: Alex

“Seeing children passionate about going into the world and doing God’s work inspires me to continue this type work. I am very thankful for what GO does for the communities it is apart of and look forward to seeing what it continues to do!” – Alex

Lent Series: Amy

“GO fosters a creative and inclusive environment, where staff and participants grow into their faith together. GO has taught me to be open to the transformations that come from every step along my journey and to be grateful for the challenges, learning opportunities and people that have pushed me to grow into my own grace.” – Amy
