June 26 – July 1, 2022
After a year hiatus, we are excited about our Sr. High mission trip for current 9th – 12 graders. You may remember that we partnered with Youth Mission Co. last year for a part of our winter retreat. We will be partnering with them again for this trip!
We will be heading to Memphis! While in Memphis, “we will explore the deep civil rights history in that city, and the ways that it is still alive today. Memphis is the ‘home of the blues’ and we will discuss what those blues are all about and how we can address the systemic issues that cause those blues.” We will stay at a local church and be led by Memphis Youth Mission (MYM) staff through daily volunteering, Bible studies, and reflection.
The cost of the trip is $500 per youth and includes travel, lodging, most meals, and a program fee. Lodging will be indoor camping style (rooms with lots of floor space for air mattresses) at Idlewild Presbyterian Church in Midtown area of Memphis. Additional information about travel will be available soon.
This mission trip has limited space, so sign up early! Please note that WPC members will have priority signup.
