Spring Break Mission Trip

Mixing service with fun, every other year, our youth take a mission trip over Spring Break to a bigger US city to learn more about the community and how we can be the living light of Christ anywhere we go.

Youth Spring Break Trip – Every other year, we take a mission trip to a bigger US city like St. Louis, New Orleans and Chicago to learn more about the community and how we can be the “living light of Christ” anywhere we go. The other years, we take a fellowship spring break trip! Our ski trips to Winter Park, Colorado have provided much needed bonding time and an opportunity to learn to #bethelight in every sort of activity.
