Youth Mission Work Trips
“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.” Hebrew 13: 16
Mission work is a cornerstone of Youth Ministries here at First Congregational United Church of Christ. We believe that given the chance, our youth will grow their walk with God in leaps and bounds when working in the Mission Field. Hands-on connections with peers and adults from our own Congregation, as well as with folks from the communities they are serving, give our youth a tangible and meaningful role in the Body of Christ. These experiences are nothing short of life-altering.
Our week-long mission trip is for youth in grades 7-12. Every other year, we serve a long-distance venue on the Island of Puerto Rico. Throughout the year our youth and parents raise funds to support these mission work trips through events such as a Car Wash, Tostada Sunday, Chili Cook-off and more.
