Youth Mission Trip Update – July 5-10, 2020
Due to changes from YouthWorks, our youth mission team will now be traveling to Charleston, WV. In this more urban location, our youth will serve and build relationships with a variety of people in Charleston through the Boys & Girls Club, Union Mission and local senior centers, as well as partnering with a local church through facilitating children’s programming. We still have room for additional youth and chaperones, so if you are interested, please see Amy.
