High School Youth Mission Trip
July 12-21, 2013
We have been accepted for this coming summer!!!
We will be heading to Dickenson County, Virginia!!!
Last year we sent our missionaries out to share the Love of Christ with families in Appalachian Tennessee. Our goal was to help make homes Warmer, Safer and Dryer for families in need Gods Grace, and I think we accomplished our goal! The Rev. Glenn "Tex" Evans started this ministry/mission after seeing for himself the desperate need of the people in rural Appalachia. He declared at that point that he needed missionaries to answer the call to "Help people right where they are, just the way they are". This model of radical love has continued and grown every since. This past summer marked the 27th year of partnership between the CUMC Youth Ministry and Appalachia Service Project. I can honestly say that the 2012 trip was the best ever! Despite the outdoor/cold showers and portion controlled food supply our youth and leaders found Gods Grace and Love in abundance. That said - I think the 2013 trip has a great chance to out shine it!
When we go on mission trips with the intention of giving back to Gods people a portion of what God has already given us, something incredible always happens... We come home so incredibly enriched by God and the people of Appalachia that it is almost impossible to put into words. The Appalachian Service Project, with CUMC, is something that you will have to experience to understand! We look forward to you all joining us in July, 2013!!!
