“This year’s mission trip was incredibly eye opening… I learned that what God can do through you is just as important as what He can do for you.”

Each day, four teams went into the field to serve at GAP Ministries, St. Luke UMC, Turn Back the Block, Augusta Wesley Foundation, St. James UMC, and Reaching Potential through Manufacturing. Overall, the team spent approximately 1400 hours that week sanding, painting, nailing, siding, building a playground, and deconstructing with our local mission partners. 

A special thanks is extended to those that supplied these teams with housing, food, and most importantly covered them in prayer. Below are some testimonials from the participants:

“I love mission trips because you get to be surrounded by the best people that constantly encourage you and speak life into you throughout the week. Making those relationships and seeing the difference you make in people’s lives is priceless. Yes, we go to work and help others, but we gain so much more out of it than just that.  We gain a faith family and new understanding for the blessings God has given us.” Jordan – TN

“This year’s mission trip was incredibly eye-opening. From serving the homeless to painting for a Montessori School, I learned that what God can do through you is just as important as what He can do for you. This has been and always will be my favorite tradition with my favorite family.” Lydia – TN

“This was my first mission trip and it was a week I don’t think I’ll ever forget. While on this trip, I felt so much love from all the different members of the church and the community. The people that we were assisting made it known that they were thankful. It was a different kind of feeling for me. I learned a lot from this mission trip and I’m glad I found the time to go.” Edward – TN
