We are excited to kick off our Summer Trader Trips 2016!
All of our egm youth and SR. High Groups will be heading out on their Trader Trips during the same week this summer. Starting on July 10th – each group varies in duration.
5th/6th Grade students will be gathering and heading to Holland, MI. So close, yet there are so many amazing things that we can learn about this community. The dates of this trip are: July 10 – 13. We will be home late in the evening on the 13th.
We will be staying at Holland Heights CRC. This will serve as our home base. Each morning we will get up, pack our lunches, and head out for days of serving with local organizations, doing “meet a need” (like random acts of kindness), exploring the community, and of course finding time for group games, and activities.
Our hope is that the as we take this week in the summer to trade in the things of this world for the things of God’s kingdom – we will be challenged and a fire started in us to share our love for Jesus in tangible ways. The exciting part is doing it in community – with people that we can share our experiences with, build bonds and memories, and challenge each other to continue to step out in our faith even after the Trader Trip is done.
The cost of the trip includes lodging, transportation (we will travel in 2 fifteen passenger vans), food, and activities. As the trip gets closer we will be asking each team member to bring a food donation for our “pantry”. The pantry is what we will eat breakfast from and pack our lunches for the day. We will keep it simple.
