This Summer we will be taking a Middle School Mission Trip to Kansas City. This trip will be July 31st through August 6th. Any student who is currently in 6th, 7th, or 8th-grade is welcome to apply for a spot on this trip. We will have limited spots available. If your student applies for this trip, we will let you know by the beginning of January if they have been accepted. The total cost of the trip is $400. However, through fundraising, we hope to lower the price for each person. If money is an issue please contact Caleb. We never want finances to be the reason that a student is unable to participate in one of our events/activities. Please download the application below!
