2021 UMCL Youth Mission Trip

ABOUT:

What better opportunity to kick off your summer than serving others!

I am sure you are aware of the devastating Tornadoes that swept the western area of Kentucky. This year we want to respond to the call of loving our neighbor by traveling to the affected area and blessing the community by helping with house repairs and disaster relief to help affected families rebuild their lives.


All students and their friends are welcome to serve and spend an unforgettable week with us!


Included are:

•          Opportunities to serve the local community to build back their communities.

•          Live worship and fun youth-oriented services

•          Game nights and ice cream runs

•          Fellowship with local neighbors and other youth teams from different parts of the country.

•          A full day of fun to enjoy local attractions.
