GILFORD — United Methodist Youth from Tilton-Northfield and Gilford churches are preparing for a mission trip this summer to New York City. Led by youth leader Randi Rocco and Rev. Preston Fuller, the mission looks to be a great experience for the mission oriented youth group. There are a number of various tasks they will be doing on the mission; each day they could be doing anything, from serving food to child care. Currently the youth are working on various fundraisers to be able to fund the mission trip.
On Saturday, April 18 from 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. there will be a Pancake Breakfast held at the First United Methodist Church in Gilford. The youth will be preparing and serving a meal of pancakes and sausage, milk, orange juice, and coffee. The cost is a love offering. People may also give donations to either Methodist church toward this mission.
The First United Methodist church is located at 18 Wesley Way, off Rt. 11A.
