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 2020...
WAVE will be traveling to Cusco, Peru June 10 - 20, 2020
Cusco is the historical hub of the Inca Empire. At 11,000 feet above sea level in the Andes mountains, Cusco’s beauty and history are stunning. We’ve partnered with local pastors and churches throughout the Sacred Valley. Your trip to Cusco will be an impactful mix of service, learning, and sharing God’s love. People travel from all over the world to visit this stunning destination in South America.
Our service in Cusco will be coordinated through local indigenous churches. Your team could be helping to add space to their existing church buildings, or making minor repairs. Your week will also include relational ministry opportunities such as ministry to the elderly, and Bible school options for local children. Projects vary depending on coordination and on the ground needs of local ministry partners. Bring a heart to serve and learn!
Riptide will be traveling to Kenosha, Wisconsin July 5 - 11, 2020
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.
