NYC Summer Mission Trip
Saturday June 20, 2015 to Sunday July 5, 2015
NYC Summer Mission TripSaturday June 20, 2015 to Sunday July 5, 2015
What is New York City Trinity Church? Trinity is located in the historic Clinton or Hell's Kitchen section of New York City. Started as a Sunday School mission over a stable on Tenth Avenue in 1877, the 100-member congregation - though limited by space, membership size, and funds - carries on a diverse ministry that continues to focus on youth and children along with the homeless and the elderly. Housed in two old tenement buildings, almost 140 years old, Trinity has tens of thousands of dollars worth of infrastructure challenges that threaten to impact their ability to carry out their ministry.
How do we serve? Where do we stay? The work will be basic building care and repair, helping the members of the neighborhood and church and possibly taking neighbor kids on day trips. The needs of the church are wide ranged and very dynamic so the type of work activity changes quickly. Probably the most important aspect of each day (aside from worship time) and night is building relationships and fellowship with the people at the church.
What does an average day look like? Each day will start with personal reflection and group devotion. Each day lunch will be together (often in central park) and will conclude with a mid day devotion. At the end of the workday we will travel to the showers and then have free time until around 10:00 PM. The day will conclude with worship and devotion.
Who can go? Anyone 18 and older is encouraged to attend. Those between 15-18 must be accompanied by a parent/ guardian, and be able to contribute to the work projects being done. This is not the easiest trip both physically and mentally, there is not much alone time, there is a lot of walking, and God will place personal challenges right in front of you that are not easily solved or sidestepped.
Cost? $350 per person (community meals, lodging, ground transportation).
When are we going?
Group 1: Saturday, June 20 - Sunday, June 28 (full)
Group 2: Saturday, June 27 - Sunday, July 5 (register here - 3 spots left)
When do I have to register? The deadline is May 1st. With a non-refundable deposit if $100. The remainder of the cost due June 1st.

Honduras Summer Mission TripTuesday July 7, 2015 to Tuesday July 14, 2015
What is Honduras Mission? Our Honduras Mission trip is located in Azacualpa, Honduras. Established in 2001, The Children’s home exists to serve the needs of the children who live there and the people of the surrounding community. In addition to caring for the children, the home is a hub for many community outreaches like a daily feeding program, church services, sports leagues, and classrooms for education.
How do we serve? Mornings are spent working on projects (painting, light construction etc.), afternoons are spent interacting with the children and helping with feeding program and of course playing soccer. Evenings are spent experiencing the local culture and visiting local churches.
Cost? $950 per person (community meals, lodging, air and ground transportation).
When are we going? July 7 - July 14 (register here)
