Being the hands and feet of Jesus

1 / 6

2020 Spring Break Civil Rights Tour

Y-Serve (Young People’s Christian Association) is the longest-running student organization at EMU! We are students eager to offer service to our community and beyond. Our goal is to serve others as the hands and feet of Jesus. 

Jesus answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself. Do this and you will live.
Luke 10:27, 28b
