Youth Mission Trips

Youth Mission Trips

Youth.Mission.TripWesley youth have enjoyed going on mission trips for many, many years. Below are a few of the recent mission trips.



 In 2022 Wesley Church will be taking an all-ages mission trip to Granite City, IL, July 10-15, 2022. Youth are welcome to attend. Youth entering 9th grade or high may attend. Youth entering 8th grade and lower may attend if a parent comes on the trip. More information is available in the Missions Team Mission Trips page.



The 2021 Youth Mission Trip was to southern Illinois, June 20-25, 2021. We worked at Little Grassy Camp.   We stayed at First UMC in Carbondale, IL (where Howard White is the pastor). On Tuesday evening, we were part of a Kidz Blast: Summer Night Out at Grace UMC in Carbondale, IL (where Jungil Rhee is the pastor).

The 2020 Youth Mission Trip has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. We hope to go to Nashville, TN, in 2021.  The details of what we'll be doing will be worked out later, but may included Project Connect Nashville, Hands On Nashville, and UMCOR. 
Youth going into 9th grade or higher may attend. Youth going into 8th grade and lower may attend if a parent comes on the trip.
