MIDDLE SCHOOL (6th-8th) MISSION EXPERIENCE - June 27-July 2, 2021
WHO: Current 6th-8th graders
WHEN: June 27 - July 2, 2021
WHERE: Duluth, MN
COST: $375 per student. If you register and we are full, you'll be added to the waiting list and your deposit will be refunded if no room opens up.
WHAT: We serve with an organization called Youthworks (twin cities based and has locations all over the world): We’ll stay at a church that graciously opens up their building to Youthworks for the summer, we’ll follow the leadership of the Youthworks staff (usually 4-5 Jesus-loving college aged young adults who have been trained and equipped for the task) and serve the community in ways that they’ve asked for help. In the past we’ve worked at elder care homes, food shelves, organizations that work with the homeless population of Duluth, yard work, kid camps, salvation army, etc.

HOW: We’ll be taking large SUVs and minivans. If you have a vehicle you’re willing to let us use, you’ll get a $150 credit towards your trip!!!
WHY: You should come on a Mission Experience because it is a great way to grow, to discover what it looks/feels like to be fully focused on your relationship with Jesus and serving Him while you serve others. Mission Experiences are a blast. We have opportunities to be more courageous, more selfless, and use our gifts to bless others. They’re also a great way to get to know more folks around here.
REGISTER: CONTACT LINDSEY SCHMIDT to see if spots are available. Register at the link below. We have 13 youth spaces and they’ll fill up quick! (We may be able to add more). There is a $50 deposit that is due when you register. If you register and we are full, you'll be added to the waiting list and your deposit will be refunded if no room opens up. The full payment needs to be made before we leave for our trip. As always, let us know if money is the reason you’re hesitating, we have resources to help!
