Living in Faith Together
2020 Youth Mission Trip dates are July 19 to July 25!
In Summer 2020 our youth will travel to Elkview, West Virginia to work alongside 400 other youth in the “Elkview River Workcamp” organized by Group Mission Trips.
Elkview is in the beautiful Kanawha Valley of West Virginia’s coal country, taking its name from the wonderful Elk River that flows through the area. Although it is near the busy capital of Charleston, little growth in manufacturing, professional, or construction jobs has left this area with a struggling economy.
The dwindling coal industry has hurt folks in this area and a devastating flood in the summer of 2016 caused more damage than anyone expected. With much work still left in the process of rebuilding, Elkview is a great location for the hands and feet of Jesus to make a different. Throughout one week in this community, you will discover a chance to help individuals who lost almost everything and are longing for a new connection and helping hands.
