Youth - not just our future,
our present NOW
A Giv2 chapter is happening now! in the NVA.
Youth, grades 6-12 can get together a few times a year for a service project right in the
NVA, have some fun together, share a meal, games - Wouldn't it be great to get together
with 50 or 60 or more youth from other churches to do something to help others.
Check it out at
Member churches include:
Middlebury, Mill Plain, Naugatuck, Oxford, and Wolcott as well as two Episcopal
churches All Saints, Wolcott and St John's, Waterbury.
