High School Youth Mission Trip
Location: Detroit, MI
June 23-30, 2019
Mandatory Meeting for everyone attending: Wednesday, January 16, 7:30-8:45 PM in Fellowship Hall (Adult Mentors, Parent & Youth must attend).
What We Will Do
Every year we have a variety of fundraising efforts to defray the cost of the mission trip. A key to our success will be the participation of all youth in the winter “Soups & Songs” event on March 16. Additionally, we will continue the spring youth Stock Sales that our church has so generously supported in the past and which take place April 28 and May 5. Fundraising proceeds are evenly split between those students who participate in each fundraiser. The final trip cost will be determined after our spring fundraising is finished. Our financial goal for this trip, after fundraising for those who participate, is to be in the neighborhood of $500. We cannot give a final cost until May, once all fundraising is finished.
Eligibility and Registration
All incoming ninth-graders through graduating seniors in 2019 are eligible to travel with us. We will also be accepting applications for a limited number of college mentors and adult mentors. Join us for this life-changing opportunity! To complete your reservation, please print and return the permission slip and expectations list along with a $150 non-refundable fee (payable to First Congregational with HS Mission/student’s name in Memo line) to the church office.

Responsibilities for each of these mentor roles are outlined on the respective application forms. The Youth Mission Team will review all applications as they arrive and notify you when any decision has been made.
