Middle School Youth Mission Trip

Our Middle School Mission Trip is June 18th-23rd. We will be partnering with our host church, Maxwell Presbyterian Church, to serve and learn from the people of Lexington. Our trip will hold a variety of focuses as we look broadly at the needs of the city. Middle School youth will be given opportunities to serve God and neighbor while learning and growing through new formed relationship with each other and those we serve.

Final Thoughts

I am looking forward to our trip to Lexington, KY. The variety of the trip will allow our middle schoolers, many for whom this will be their first big trip away from family, to experience many different ways to serve. This trip will also provide valuable time for our middle school youth to grow friendships and experience bonding moments. I am very excited to see how our youth’s faith and relationship with God might expand through their connection with the people in Lexington. I know that the experiences waiting for us in Lexington will be life-changing and impactful. I cannot wait to watch it all unfold.
