Mission Trek

Welcome to our Mission Trek Page.

Sign Ups for the 2017-2018 school year are taking place for the Mission Trek program.  What is Mission Trek you ask?  Mission Trek is a Justice and Service oriented program for 6th-12th graders.  We commit ourselves to serving our community throughout the year and strive to see the face of Christ in everyone we serve.  The year is fully of a variety of service projects, fundraising and community building activities.  We take all year to prepare our hearts and minds for our week long summer Mission Trip.  This is a life changing week full of surprises, laughter, and hard work.   Come and join us on this journey and let yourself be the hands and feet of Christ.
