Sr. High Youth Mission Trip to Cincinnati, Ohio

Our Sr. High Mission Trip this year will be going to Cincinnati to work with Group Missions' Week of Hope.

Teenagers learn Christ-like empathy and compassion as they meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults. Five days of service. A lifetime of rewards.

Scholarships are available. Participation in Car Washes, Pancake Breakfast and the In-Tent Ministry can drastically off-set the cost. Trip will include a couple excursions to be determined later.
