Seventeen Senior High Youth Group members and four adults recently spent a week in Washington, D.C., working with the Youth Service Opportunities Project. YSOP, founded in 1983, is "committed to helping young people become part of the solution to societal problems by showing them how even their smallest actions can make a difference in the lives of others." Beth Horne, our pastor at the Highlands, accompanied the group to Washington and has written about it--and shared some additional photos--on the Pastor's Page
