SERVE & GIVE IN OUR WORLD
2018 Savannah, GA Mission Trip
Join us this summer as we travel to Savannah, GA, July 28-August 5. We have reservations for the first 10 people to register. We are still working out the details as for the work we will be doing there, but we know God will put us in positions where we are needed most but we do know there is a place for anyone.
We are working with Lutheran Disaster Services of Georgia. We will be doing physical labor assisting members of the community or surrounding community with repairs from flood and tornado damage. They have big and small projects from cleaning, hauling debris, painting, repairing/replacing drywall, working on roofs, rebuilding steps, and various projects as these. We have a list of small tools we are asked to bring for these projects.
We will be traveling on July 28-29, working Monday-Friday, and traveling back Aug. 4-5. Housing will be through a local church and we plan to overnight in hotels while traveling.
This is an Intergenerational trip for high school students 16 years or older. Anyone traveling between the ages of 11-15 must be accompanied by a parent.
Registration forms can be found below or at the Welcome Center with more details. To book your reservation, a $100 deposit is due by June 15th. Total cost of the trip will be determined once everyone is registered but participants portion will not exceed $325. Contact Niki Pohnl for more details.

2014 Nicaragua Mission Trip
Summer of 2014 was an exciting time for us! We sent 33 youth and adults to Nicaragua. During our time there, we helped with feeding programs, schools, and immersed ourselves in their culture. So much so, that our driver/translater, Edgard, ended up coming to Wisconsin to visit a few months later! View photos from our trip here.
