Sixth- through 12th-grade youth from Newton’s United Presbyterian Church and Grinnell’s Friends Church experienced a night “Out of the HOME-dinary” on Nov. 15 at Friends Church in Grinnell. After a time of fellowship and a movie, several youth spent the night outdoors in cardboard shelters they’d constructed to experience homelessness firsthand. A hot breakfast was served courtesy of the Friends Church the following morning.
