Adult Mission Trips
Fall 2019 Mission Trip
This year we are planning to offer a fall mission trip to assist fellow Floridians in rebuilding their homes and lives after surviving Hurricane Irma. All skill and experience levels are welcome. The costs will be minimal, as we will be staying on cots in a church, preparing our own meals and will not have any construction fees. Teams will work Monday – Friday. The Conference Disaster response office will likely deploy us in Southwest Florida, perhaps in Immokalee or Everglades City, Nov. 10-16, 2019.
Our next planning meeting is from 6–7:30 p.m. Oct. 14 in Knox Hall Room 150. RSVP here.
Make your payment for the mission trip here.

Nicaragua Mission Trip
While we have enjoyed a long and meaningful partnership with El Ayudante in Nicaragua, due to the civil unrest there, we are not planning a church-sponsored mission trip there this year. Please keep the people of Nicaragua, and especially the staff of El Ayudante, in your prayers.
There is still an opportunity to serve with El Ayudante if you are interested in going on your own. El Ayudante is offering trips June 29 – July 6, 2019 and July 6 – July 13, 2019. If you are interested, please register directly with them.
Please Note: The US State Department continues to urge caution and vigilance for anyone traveling to Nicaragua. Read their latest Travel Advisory.
