The 2019 Middle School Mission Trip will take youth who have completed grades 6-8 to Des Moines, Iowa, for service-learning projects and other fun activities. The trip will provide a special opportunity for youth to know each other better, create lifelong memories with their church community, and explore community work being done by different organizations in the Des Moines area. Daily devotions will help youth connect all aspects of the trip to their spirituality and their faith. Throughout our service and learning opportunities, we will ask “What is God up to?” and “How can we join in?”
