YOUTH MISSION TRIP
Friday-Saturday, June 10-11
We will be leaving from Peace on Friday, June 10th.
Sunday-Friday, June 12-15
Once we arrive in Denver, CO, we will be serving with an organization called YouthWorks. They arrange and lead mission trips for middle and high school students all over the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. We will be lead by a group of college students or young adults who will live in Denver for the Summer. They will lead us both in service projects, learning about the community, and learning about our faith.
Saturday - Monday, June 16-18
We will leave Denver on Saturday, June 16 to return home. We will have a fun day on the 17th and return to church on June 18.
St. Louis, MO
Denver, the capital of Colorado, is an American metropolis dating to the Old West era. Larimer Square, the city’s oldest block, features landmark 19th-century buildings. Museums include the Denver Art Museum, an ultramodern complex known for its collection of indigenous works, and the mansion of famed Titanic survivor Molly Brown. Denver is also a jumping-off point for ski resorts in the nearby Rocky Mountains.
Our group will partner with those seeking to bring hope, we'll have the opportunity to see the changes and challenges the city of Denver is facing, serve with local food shelves, a Sidewalk Sunday School program that brings the message of Jesus to different neighborhoods. Worship while taking in a beautiful mountain view, explore the community, and hear from local residents about what it looks like to live and serve in Denver. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2000.
