Youth Mission Trips

Youth Mission Trips

Youth.Mission.TripEach year we take a Youth Group Mission Trip.  This page has information about past and upcoming mission trips.  Our mission trips are open to youth entering ninth grade or higher and to adults. We need adults to join us.  (Youth who are younger than ninth grade may attend if a parent also goes on the trip.)


The 2019 Mission Trip will be to Minnesota June 9-15, 2019. We will be working in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul) area.  We are going with Pekin First UMC and Savoy UMC.  We will work with a number of agencies. Included will be:

  • VBS at Hennepin Avenue UMC - this is an all-day vacation bible school and they need our help. Website, VBS.
  • Hope4Youth - Hope4Youth is an organization located in Minnesota that meets the basic needs of young people (ages 23 and under) experiencing homelessness in our community.
  • Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit that provides nutritionally complete youtubemeals specifically formulated for malnourished children - worldwide. More info: www.fmsc.org
  • Mary's Place - Mary’s Place offers transitional apartments for homeless families with children. It is downtown, near Target Field. https://sharingandcaringhands.org/marys-place has a number of ministries. Life story of Mary Jo. We met Mary Jo (born 1942) and give her a prayer shawl!
  • Salvation Army - The Salvation Army in St. Paul has a children's playground which needs to have mulch spread and the grounds of the Salvation Army need to be refurbished. We will work at St. Paul Citadel.
  • Managers On a Mission - Their mission is to develop Christ-centered future leaders of the sport industry.  Website.

We stayed at the Cross of Glory* church in Hopkins, MN. *We also worked on a ministry outreach trailer that the Cross of Glory church uses.  This trailer converts into a stage which can be used, for example, in a park for their praise band. Every other Wednesday, the Cross of Glory church does a music in the park outreach to Hispanic persons.

2019 Scripture: Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”  And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

The cost of the trip is $100 per person.  Wesley permission slip (can download and print).  The other required forms are available in print form from the church office.

Joyful Noise Concert is Friday evening.
