On January 11th, the Middle School and High School Youth Group had the opportunity to visit the Jersey Animal Coalition, an animal shelter in South Orange, NJ. The staff and volunteers are amazing people, full of passion for caring for the cats and dogs who come to the shelter.

The love and care that goes into rehabilitating the animals is moving, and contagious! Many of the kids left the shelter with an interest in volunteering their time there.
