2017 Youth Summer Mission Trip Information and fundraising opportunities:
Location: Rutland, Vermont
Dates: July 22 – 29
The city of Rutland, Vermont is surrounded by the pristine beauty of the Green Mountains. This is a region loved by visitors and residents for its seemingly limitless outdoor recreational activities year-round, including skiing, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, and water sports. But like many small towns, economic concerns, poverty and unemployment exist. In this town of 16,000 over 20% of individuals receive food assistance from the government and many of the local families living below the poverty line have young children at home.
Mission Trip Fundraisers:
Spaghetti Lunch with desert auction – 2/19 right after church service.
