Middle School Summer Mission Trip: July 15-21
Why should I go to St. Paul?
The Middle School mission trip to the St. Paul will provide you an opportunity to exercise your faith in a context that will encourage growth by "living out" scripture as you partner with God by working in neighborhoods that are seeking to live missionally by serving the needs of their communities. We understand more clearly the love of Christ when we proclaim the gospel in both word and deed. Mission trips can become the launch pad... a drawing back of the bow... a wind-up for the pitch, as they equip and encourage students to go home and love the communities they travel into every day when they roll out of bed. So let's go Middle schoolers, let's love and serve like Christ!
Another plus for going on this trip is the cost of this trip, which is half the normal price. The reasons being 1) Serving grows our faith so I don't want cost to be a hinderance. 2) I'm getting the word out later than normal so smaller time frame to sign up. Lower the price to offset the time crunch but I do have limited spots.
Serving in St. Paul
• Partnering with Godtown to seek and serve. Take a look at what Godtown is all about
• During the week, students may experience a variety of service opportunities from helping at a food shelter, helping with building restoration, taking part in a community garden or community barbeque and other ways to engage the neighborhood.
You will have the opportunity to serve alongside a great organization that is working to support the St. Paul community. Their goal is to provide a community ministry experience that engages people of all ages in daily prayer, ministry to the neighborhood, hands on mission work, mentorship, and instruction.
