The Youth Mission Trip 2018
The youth trip was held the week of June 18. We had 5 youth and 6 adults attending our week at Little Grassy UM Camp. We spent our week on Disciple’s Ridge. We bunked in the cabins on the ridge and during the day we were refurbishing the cabins. We painted 4 cabins and put together several beds to furnish the cabins with. We had a wonderful trip working for the Lord. We met new people and spent time in fellowship together every day. It was a wonderful experience for all of us on the trip. We will be talking about our work on August 5 at the church service at the park. Thank you to all who went on the trip and those who donated funds to allow us to go. Stay tuned…we are working on details for next year’s trip.
