YOUTH PHILADELPHIA MISSION TRIP
The youth Philadelphia Mission Trip will be April 22-26, 2019!
It costs $250 which covers lodging, food throughout the week, and travel! Students are encouraged to bring approximately $50 for food traveling to and from Philadelphia and a special meal during the week. All payments can be made with cash, check, or money order.
ALL SLOTS HAVE BEEN FILLED FOR THE PHILADELPHIA MISSION TRIP and registration is currently closed.
We are creating a wait list in case another student cannot keep the commitment to go. If we have enough people added to it, we may be able to add another van.
If you would like to put your student on a "wait list" please email Kyle at with the subject line
"philadelphia wait list" and in the body of the email simply put your child's name AND your phone number. Those on the wait list will be selected by a first come, first serve basis to replace any student who already signed up but may not be able to come.

PRAYER AND COMMISIONING DURING 10AM SERVICE
All missionaries who will take part in the Philadelphia mission trip will be prayed for as a "sending out" during the 10 am service on the Sunday before the mission trip.
Families can decorate this bag with their missionary or the missionary can decorate it themselves. Feel free to make it as personally designed and unique as you feel! We encourage families to write prayers, scriptures, and words of encouragement on one side and have students to create their own personal design on the other side.
