Upcoming Mission Experiences for our Youth
SAVE the Date! For our 14 year old students and older (and their friends) – We are booking a SPRING BREAK mission trip to Jonestown, VA to help local families who live in poverty by improving the condition of their homes. You must be 14 or older to attend. No building experience needed.
We will need adult chaperones.
Trip date: Sunday, April 15, 2018-Saturday, April 21, 2018.
Transportation: To be determined – coach bus or vans
Cost: Approximately $500 per participant, but we are anticipating that each participant will pay about $200, through fundraising and personal payments. Cost includes all meals and accommodations.
From Appalachia Service Project (ASP): ”ASP provides one of the most rewarding structured service opportunities in the nation — bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families. For 48 years, we’ve made homes warmer, safer, and drier for families and provided transformational service experiences for volunteers. Last year, 16,231 volunteers served with ASP, providing critical repairs for 493 families and constructing 26 new homes.”
We will be offering this service opportunity exclusively to our teens between now and November 15th to gauge interest. On November 15th, we will extend the opportunity to other Madison churches if our trip is not to capacity.
Please call or email Sue to demonstrate interest or with questions: email firstname.lastname@example.org or call, 203-843-6206.
