Elementary Family Mission Trip

Family Mission Trip Vision: Families can serve God together in a new and unique way, forming memories that last a lifetime. Children will see the Gospel being brought to life through their own service and by witnessing their grown up’s service!

Who Can Participate: Elementary and middle school age children and their adult (parent, grandparent, guardian.) Each child must have an adult to serve along side them.

When: Friday, April 24-26, 2020

Cost: $250 for 1 adult/child pair, 1st payment of $100 due 10/20/2019

Meals: Dinner Friday through Lunch Sunday is included in the cost. Breakfast and lunch will be prepared and eaten at our hostile in their kitchen. It will be a cold breakfast and bagged lunch. Dinner will be at a casual restaurant. Dietary requirements can be met.

Housing: We will be staying at The Pilgrimage in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of DC. They offer bunk beds in a hostile style setting. We will arrange rooms depending on who has signed up keeping in mind the age of children, gender, and needs. We know that each family is coming with a variety of experiences staying away from home so will be as flexible as the space allows.
