2017 Middle School Mission Trip

June 12-15, 2017

This Summer we will be going on a local mission trip with the middle school youth. We will…

  • Volunteer with Metropolitan Ministries serving the poor in the Tampa area,
  • Help fix up the West campus.
  • Have a lock-in in the West campus gym.
  • Finish up with a trip to the beach the next day.

Monday and Tuesday we will leave the church at 8:30 am and drive to Metropolitan Ministries near downtown Tampa.  We will spend the day helping with families, assembling food, or other forms of service which they do for the needy in Tampa every day.  This will not only serve those in need in our community but also let the youth see the poverty situation in Tampa and what is being done to help those in need.  At the end of Monday and Tuesday, we will return to the church (Central campus) where parents will pick up the kids for the night.

On Wednesday, we will head over to the West campus and do some work around the campus.  That night we will have a lock-in at the West campus in their gym and classrooms.  We’ll have a time of worship, play some games, eat some pizza and snacks and have a great time.  Then Thursday morning we’ll go from the West campus to the beach for a few hours and be back at the church (Central campus) by evening.

The total cost for the trip is $125.

In addition to participation in the Metropolitan Ministries service activities, this includes lunch on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday as well as dinner and snacks and activities for the lock-in on Wednesday night.  Breakfast will be provided on Thursday morning.

We are not requiring a deposit.  The total is due by June 4.
