We are hopefully doing two Mission Trips this year, a Spring Break trip (March 1-8) and a Summer trip (the week after finals end, May 11-18)
Both trips are primarily construction based, but don't worry! If you have never been on a mission trip or built anything so much as a bird house, that's okay! We are all volunteers and no one expects any of us to be professionals. Both trips will have professionals on site. These trips are more than labor- they are relational, fun, and a learning experience for all. It is amazing what can happen when people come together in God's love.
*If you are unsure if you can come on any of these trips because of cost, let us know, we work something out. Anyone who wants to go can go!
Spring Break Trip: Swan Quarter, North Carolina
Disaster Response: Hurricane Relief!
We are planning to drive to Swan Quarter, NC, to help out with Hurricane Relief from several hurricanes that have afflicted the area (Isaac and Irene) by helping with home repairs and construction of new homes for those who lost their homes entirely. We will be staying in a school in the area.
Cost: $150 + cost of food
Deadline to sign up: Feb 9, midnight
If you are not sure, but you are interested, go ahead and put your name on the list so we have an idea of possible group size.
Summer Trip: Rosebud Reservation, Mission, South Dakota
*Whether we take trip depends on amount of interest
Rosebud Reservation is the second poorest county in the United States. Tree of Life Ministry is a multi-denominational, cross-cultural relief agency sponsored by the Dakotas Conference of the United Methodist Church. To read about their ministry and their mission statement, check out the website: http://www.treeofliferelief.org/
We would fly to Mission, SD on Sunday the 11th.
Cost: $600 + cost of food
Deadline to sign up: Jan 26th, midnight
To go on this trip, there will be fundraising! Those going on the trip are expected to help with fundraising efforts.
If you are interested in either trip, sign your name in the appropriate spread sheet so we can begin to gage interest!
This link has two spreadsheets, the titles are shown on the bottom tabs.
You can also sign up on the sheets on the bulletin board in the fellowship hall!
That is all!
