Mission Trips

Each Summer Middle and High School students will have the chance to serve, learn, and grow together as we take mission trips to various places. This summer we are going to the following places:

Jr. High Youth Mission Trip
Lexington, KY
July 15 – July 20, 2018
Cost: $350

For the 2018 youth mission trip,  Jr. High students will join forces to participate in a Presbyterian-affiliated mission experience called Mission Immersion. The Mission Immersion is an urban ministry designed to educate and challenge participants to reach out to “least of these” by exposing them to the plight of lower-income and individuals experiencing homelessness in Lexington, KY. Through a variety of social ministries, youth will use their gifts and strengths as they engage and bring about change to those in the city. This urban mission experience will motivate people to act in constructive, appropriate, and loving ways, both now and in the future, challenging individuals to consider ministry and service an essential daily part of living out their faith.

High School Youth Mission Trip
Hazard, KY
Week 1 – June 17-22, 2018
Week 2 – July 22- 27, 2018
Cost: $420

For the 2018 youth mission trip, the  Senior High Youth, will be traveling to Hazard, KY to participate in the Housing Development Alliance. The HDA is an organization that believes that safe, decent, and affordable housing is a fundamental human right. The HDA is an equal opportunity housing provider, which works with a variety of homeowners, including, but not limited to, young working couples with children, single parents, persons with disabilities, and elderly persons. During our week, we will volunteer on various phases of construction, from shingling to digging footer drains, framing floors and walls to painting or landscaping. We hope that this week-long program will create an environment that will encourage youth to probe deeper into their faith and how they can help in a community that is so close to home.
