Mission Trip 2012

It is a tradition for the Sr. High group to go on a mission trip every summer.   This Summer we are heading to Juneau, AK to work with the Douglas Community United Methodist Church during the first week in July.  We will be building an outdoor space at Douglas community as well as doing some repairs on the parsonage.  We will be assisting the local church with their tradition of feeding the multitudes on the 4th of July.  We will spend a day at Eagle River camp where we will team up with another mission group that will be working at the camp all week.  We will also be working with the local homeless community though volunteering at the Glory Hole.  One of the challenges that has been given to the team is to figure out how to feed themselves with the amount of money equivalent to one weeks worth of food stamps.  Two teens are paired up to come up with a menu for one day during the week.  The teens are responsible for creating the menu, buying the food on a budget, preparing the meal, and cleaning up after each meal.  It will be a good challenge and we look forward to the trip.
