The 2011 Senior High Mission Trip
In July of 2011, twenty students and leaders spent a week exploring the nation’s capital and serving alongside a variety of ministries and agencies that serve the most vulnerable people in the city. It was an unforgettable experience as we encountered God through worship, learning, laughter, service, play, brokenness, and justice-seeking.
A big thank you to all who helped support the Senior High Mission trip team through your donations, prayers, and encouragement.
The 2010 Summer Mission Trip
17 members of the Sr. High youth group traveled to southeast Montana July 17-25, 2010. There they worked alongside the people of the Northern Cheyenne Reservation to do home repair for low-income people in the community, a day camp for younger children, and sports ministry with older children. In addition to outreach and service projects, our students had a chance to meet with tribal leaders to learn about the culture of the Northern Cheyenne people and the struggles that come out of the Native American experience.
Some stats about the Northern Cheyenne Reservation:
