High School Summer Mission Trip 2019
Deadline to express interest: September 30
Next summer, the high school youth have the opportunity to participate in the first year of high school ministry with the Jeremiah Project ( in Jonesville, VA. This experience is being developed specifically for high school youth, and includes hands-on service projects, usually including significant construction, along with quality worship and programming and opportunities to connect with youth from other churches. The dates for the high school week are June 30-July 6. Because this date overlaps with the 4th of July holiday, we need to gauge interest. If enough youth are available and interested, the total cost for the week for families will be $200.00 payable by March 1. A refundable (until Feb. 1, 2019) $50.00 deposit will be due by October 26 once we have confirmed that there is interest. To express interest in the trip, please e-mail Dwayne Stinson
