MARCH 1, 2015 - Begin Submitting Missions Proposals
Now is the time to begin planning your mission trip dreams for 2015. Our Missions Committee is currently revising its guidelines. Until those revisions are complete, no new plans for 2015 (aside from trips already announced and approved in 2014) will be approved. In the meantime, begin dreaming, and plan to submit your proposal on or after March 1, 2015. The 2015 Form is AVAILABLE HERE.
UPCOMING MISSIONS TRIPS:
FOREIGN MISSIONS FOR 2015:
HONDURAS - JULY 7-14 for adults
This short-term mission trip will engage its participants in construction, women’s projects, and Bible School for children. The work will take place in the Copan Deanery of the Diocese of Honduras of the Episcopal Church. Construction will focus on the upgrading of an existing church building to add facilities for dormitory and kitchen use. The re-fit building will serve as a training center for the regional needs of the Church. Terry and Brien Koehler will be the team leaders.
GUATEMALA - JUNE 29 - JULY 12 for youth
This short-term mission trip will engage our youth in a varied program of mission service in Guatemala. It is offered in partnership with St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Kerrville, and Gavin Rogers will head the leadership team.
DOMESTIC MISSIONS FOR 2015:
Short FUSE WACO - JULY 16 - 19 - for all ages middle school and above
Short FUSE, our introduction to a mission trip experience for all ages (middle school minimum), cross-generational family participation encouraged, in Waco, Texas (July 16-19, 2015). Singles welcome and also encouraged. The Short FUSE is a cooperative ministry with Christ Church Outreach. The ShortFUSE (FUSE=Family Urban Service Experience) is conducted in partnership with Mission Waco, one of the premier urban ministry organizations in the U.S. Our team will experience a “sampler” of ministry opportunities serving children, the elderly, and the homeless. This is an easy opportunity: it is close to home, it doesn’t take much time, and it isn’t expensive. We have doubled the capacity for this trip in 2015 based on highly positive feedback from 2014 participants. Participants in 2014 ranged in age from 14 to 80!
