Workcamp (Mission Trip)
At Pass-A-Grille Beach UCC, we pride ourselves on being a mission church...
.. We believe that one of the greatest ways we have to show our love for God and for others is by the way we serve them. Our goal is to help youth learn how to live out their faith by the way they care for others! Whether it is through a Workcamp, or a few hours spent preparing food for the homeless, we believe in serving others.
One of the greatest ministries our youth programming provides is the opportunity for our youth to travel to various sites every summer and experience the joy that comes from giving of one’s self. We have committed to taking the senior high youth overseas once every four years so that each of them will have the opportunity during their high school years, to experience life in a culture very different from their own. These Workcamps have been life changing experiences, not only for the individual youth involved, but for the entire group.
We seek to find new ways to reach out to our local community through service projects and volunteering as well.
Summer of 2019...
WAVE will be traveling to San Juan, Puerto Rico June 7-15, 2019
Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico in September 2017. Millions of people were left without electricity, with limited access to clean water, and with damaged homes. While supplies and assistance have been arriving to the island since the hurricane, help will be needed for years to come to rebuild Puerto Rico.
Prior to the hurricane, Group International Mission Trips had strong relationships with mayors and local churches in several municipalities, and never has the time been so right for those strong relationships to shine. We will be working with closely with the mayors and the churches to provide much needed assistance to hurricane victims, whether that will be through distributing food and supplies, or identifying which homes are in need of critical repair and providing teams to help with painting, roof repair, debris clean-up, or whatever else is needed.
We will be lodged in safe and secure facilities with access to electricity and running water, and will be provided with meals and drinking water. We encourage you to link arms with us in helping our friends and fellow US citizens rebuild their homes and their lives.
Riptide will be traveling to Charleston, S.C. June 22-28, 2019
Week of Hope is packed with practical acts of love and service. Students build meaningful connections as they serve people through our strong partnerships with local ministries and nonprofit organizations. They'll learn Christ-like empathy and compassion for others as they meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults.
As students serve in the name of Jesus, they’ll develop friendships with the people being served, with other teams, with their own youth group, and, most importantly, with Jesus. Denominational differences disappear as like-minded youth work together for a common purpose. and work side by side with youth helping serve the community through various means of service outreach.
