Senior High Mission Trip to Atlanta Georgia

Our Senior High group is going on it's annual Mission Trip. This year we are going to Georgia to be a part of DOOR Atlanta (Discovering Opportunities for Outreach and Reflection). Through DOOR's Discover program, groups spend time serving with a variety of local agencies and ministries and learning through evening speakers and activities.

The experience is about more than preparing a meal at a soup kitchen or playing with children at a day camp. It is an opportunity to work alongside local community members, to learn from local leaders, and to listen to the stories of neighbors, clients, and churches. The people and stories may challenge your initial perceptions of the city. But they reveal the ways that God is working. They will help you to see the face of God in the city.

A DOOR Atlanta Discover experience centers on the theme of Bread for the Journey and answers the question of "who is our neighbor?" by using the Bible and writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Participants engage this theme and focus question through service work and community interactions. All participants go to The King Center to learn more about social justice and the changes the city of Atlanta has experienced because of the Civil Rights Movement.

Service Opportunities
DOOR Atlanta partners with 32 agencies across the city. Participant service experiences may include: a local soup kitchen, packing and sending medical supplies to third world countries, or working on a local urban farm, or another experience.
