Youthworks Mission Trip

Our congregation partners with an organization called Youthworks to provide mission trips for our High School and Middle School youth each summer.  So far, the High School youth of our congregation have traveled to Birmingham, AL, and New Orleans, LA.  Our Middle School youth have travelled to Chattanooga, TN, and Savannah, GA.

While we are on the trips the youth spent time working on physical mission projects such as sorting clothes, working in food banks and food pantries, and even painting the exterior of houses.  We also get time to work in Vacation Bible School projects, local YMCAs, Boys and Girls Clubs, and other centers for children in the inner city.  They also prepare their own meals every meal of each day.


However, these mission trips are not just for youth to work.  The youth do devotions each day as well as have time each day to process what they are seeing and experiencing.  Mission trips are a time of growing individually as well as providing service for a community in need of seeing God's love.

2015 Youthworks Mission Trip
In 2015 we decided to take a combined Middle School/High School group on the Youthworks Mission Trip to Wetumpka, Alabama. Youthworks has partnered with a local church that operates a satellite campus in a nearby mobile home park. During the school year the church hosts Wednesday evening activities along with weekly study/homework help sessions. By teaming up with YouthWorks during the summer, the church can expand the program to become a Vacation Bible School-style Kids Club that operates four days a week throughout the summer. We joined youth groups from around the country to run the Kids Club, as well as to clean and paint several residences in the park. We spent one morning at a nursing home visiting with residents, which may have been the highlight of the week for many of our kids.
 
Combining the Middle School and High School groups had challenges, but we found that there were huge benefits in the kids getting to know each other better across a wide age range. We love having the flexibility to decide on a year-to-year basis how we might practice being the hands and feet of Jesus in these special trips. Being "together apart" in a new place gives all of the participants, youth and adult chaperones, a chance to see God's great creation in new ways.
