New York High School Mission Trip

July 12-19


WHO IS GOING:  You are!
The New York Team is open to all students currently in 9th through 12th grades.  Youth and Worship Ministries are combining    forces again to bring you a two-for-one: Mission Trip & Choir Tour (and you do not have to be a part of youth choir, or have construction experience, to be a part of this trip).

WHAT WILL WE DO:  We will be working with the Sandy Rebuild Project, a ministry of the North American Mission Board (NAMB), to continue rebuilding homes of families devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Hurricane Sandy was the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, as well as the second-costliest hurricane in United States history.  

Following Super Storm Sandy, churches responded swiftly and compassionately to the devastation left in its wake. Thanks to the thousands of volunteer days provided by volunteers, this has been a     season of help, healing and hope.  Teams have supported those affected with meals, chainsaw teams, mud-out, childcare, showers, laundry, water purification, emotional and spiritual care.
