2019 Summer Mission Trip
Youth Mission Trip, July 12-21, 2019
We brought 15 students safely out to the Blackfeet Nation in Montana and back in July. It was an exhausting 10 days and we returned emptied of energy but filled with a passion for God's work that we're excited to bring back to our local community. God was at work in the hearts of each of our students and it was a great experience! We were stretched outside of our comfort zones but saw some tremendous growth in the group.
We also got to experience the great vastness of our God through the mountains and scenery. A couple highlights from the trip were our day in Glacier National Park and the Big Daddy Weave concert.
SAVE THE DATE! On August 6-8, 2020 we will send middle school students and several adult volunteers to the Northwest Conference's annual MUUUCE (Most Unbelievable Ultimate Urban Camping Experience) at Crossroads Covenant Church in Woodbury, MN. In August 2019, our group of 8 middle school students and two adults experienced the most fun possible that you can pack into 3 short days (including a carnival, Valleyfair, and a stop at Big Fun Factory). Worship and powerful speakers were also highlights that helped our students grow in their faith while also having fun. More information about this event in August 2020 to come as it is available. Stay tuned!
