Mission Trip Presentation
Sunday, October 13th, 11:15am
The SJC youth who went on a mission trip to North Carolina this summer will talk about their experiences and present what they learned during their week with the Episcopal Farmworker Ministry. This presentation is part of the ongoing “Out of the Box” series that highlights ways members of SJC and others are living out their faith beyond the walls of the church.
Commit to Serve!
JUNE 23-29, 2019
Nathan and Ashley are eagerly awaiting commitments from members of the middle school and high school youth group for our MISSION TRIP!!! We cannot wait to serve with this crew and dive into deepening our spiritual connection with ourselves and each other.
We are hoping to collect a $75 deposit for each student by Sunday March 10. Its time to decide to make a difference in your life and in this world!
FAQ’s about the mission trip:
Where are we going?
Dunn, NC, a rural, agricultural community on the Coastal Plain of Eastern NC.
What are we doing?
Working with the Episcopal Farm Workers Ministry and the Trinity Center on the Outer Banks.
But what are we going to DO there?
We’ll do some farm work and some projects to support the community of farmworkers. We will hear stories from migrant workers and open up our hearts and minds to a greater human experience.
Who is going on the trip?
Definitely Ashley Wade and Nathan Bourne. We hope to bring a group of ten students – there are still several spots available!
What students are eligible to go?
All rising 7th-12th graders.
How much does it cost?
The ticket price per student is about $750, but we will be fundraising and assistance is available. As with all programs at St. John’s, money shouldn’t be a deciding factor for your family! Do know that each student will be responsible for helping with fundraising efforts for our group.
How are we getting there?
We’re taking the St. John’s van. It’s about a 14 hour drive and we’re planning on doing it in a day.
Where are we staying?
For the first five nights we’ll stay at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Clinton, NC. They’ve offered for us to take over a couple Sunday School rooms and their parish hall. Our last two nights we’ll be at The Trinity Center on the Outer Banks.
How do I sign up?
Email Nathan (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP and bring in your $75 deposit on Sunday March 10th.
