Summer Mission Trips 2017
Sun, Jun 18, 2017, 8:00 AM – Thu, Jul 13, 2017, 5:00 PM CDT
This summer our youth have two amazing opportunities to experience the world and serve God inside and outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Mission trips include project work, shared meals, connections with members of the community, morning and evening prayer and reflection, socializing and fun. Through these experiences, our youth build friendships, create bonds with people in the community they serve, and deepen their faith.
Urban Adventure-Mobile, AL. June 18-25. Urban Adventure is a week-long domestic experience for our high school youth. This year our adventure will take us to Mobile, Alabama as we partner with Raise the Roof Project, a home repair ministry partnership of Dauphin Way United Methodist Church and St. Paul's Episcopal Church. Our efforts will begin in the South Broad Street community where we will participate in home repair projects, primarily roofing and build relationships with homeowners. We'll lodge at Camp Christian in Tillman's Corner. Our evenings will include dinner, worship, speaker, fellowship options (including swimming!) and group time for debriefing. Our weeklong trip will conclude with a couple of days to enjoy the beaches and attractions of Mobile and the Gulf Coast. Open to youth currently in grades 8-12. Cost is $450 includes ground transportation, lodging, a t-shirt and most meals.
Urban Mission-Nashville, TN. July 9-13. Urban Mission is an overnight “mini-camp” for our middle school youth. We’ll stay at St. Augustine’s Chapel on the Vanderbilt campus. During the day we will travel all over Nashville to serve with various organizations and in the evening, we will return to St. Augustine’s for dinner, games, movies and evening prayer. Some of the organizations on our list are Magdalane House/Thistle Farms, Nashville Food Project, Matthew 25, Nashville Cares, St. Luke’s Community House, Second Harvest, Society of St. Andrew and Open Table. Our week will also include a half-day excursion to explore the Music City and cool off with ice cream at Bobbie’s Dairy Dip. Open to youth currently in grades 5-7. Cost is $150 includes transportation during the week, lodging, a t-shirt and most meals.
