Prince of Peace (POP) Lutheran Church, 2985 Center Rd. in Poland, will be starting a monthly youth group that will meet at the church on the first Wednesday of the month. The group will focus on local and international service projects aimed at giving youth a chance to make a difference in the lives of other youth.

"The POP Youth Monthly Missions Group will meet on the first Wednesday of every month from 6-7 p.m. at the church," said Program spokesperson Nora Smith. "Any youth grades K-12 are welcome to join. The first meeting will take place Sept. 5."

Smith said the first meeting will kick off with a program to assemble school kits for Lutheran World Relief. The kits will be sent out in October along with personal care kits and quilts the church members have put together.

"They often go to countries where children are displaced by war and may be living in refugee camps, but it isn't limited to that," Smith said.

Other projects for the new group this year include Christmas caroling at a local nursing home, putting together care kits for Akron Children's Hospital and supporting the local police and fire departments.

"We don't have any other events planned, but would like to have some fun activities for the youth as well," Smith said. "I think that giving the youth the opportunity to serve others teaches them valuable lessons and gives them something to feel good about. We need to support those in our community and abroad."

At this point she said she would be very pleased to have 10 to 15 children, but would hope that the program could expand down the road.

Anyone needing additional information on the new youth program can contact the church at 330-757-3272 or like the Facebook page "Prince of Peace Evangelical Lutheran, Poland, OH" for up-to-date event information.

"We invite you to join our mission," Smith said.
