Colorado Mission Trip 2014
Last August the families in our preteen ministry took part in our first ever family mission trip, to Colorado. A family mission trip is just what it sounds like; It is a mission trip designed for the entire family to participates. We had individuals of all ages, the youngest being just three years old. Few things change someone like a mission trip, and we desired to not only change individuals but their entire family!
Families got the chance to worship together nightly, serve together in the community, and had an opportunity to play together as well, not to mention all the time spent together in the vans, it was an 11-12 hour trip. We served alongside Edge Church- one of the fastest growing church plants in North American Mission Board (NAMB) located in Aurora Colorado.
Our group distributed over 1,300 door hangers advertising Edge Church and a one-day VBS the next day. On Saturday we partnered with members of Edge and put on a one day VBS for the community in order to help Edge make contact with families in that area. 50 individuals from the community attended, and during the invitation 5 children and 1 adult received Christ!
It was so great, we are going back! August 7-10th, 2014 we will return to Colorado to work with another church plant in Denver area. This mission trip is for families of preteens which means if you have a member of your family in 5th or 6th grade, then your entire family is welcome no matter how old or how young the other members maybe. Be watching the announcements and the bulletin for more information about this life changing event!
