2017 Youth Works Mission Trip
We are in the process of registering a group from First Lutheran to a Youthworks! Mission trip this coming summer. The site we have scheduled with is St. Paul, Minnesota, close to home, yet a very different context than small town Le Sueur.
We have reserved 15 Youthworks! slots for the week of July 23-28, the week just before GIANT Celebration weekend. We will drive up on Sunday afternoon, July 23, and return on Friday, July 28. The cost will be $272/per person. The trip will be open to youth who have finished sixth grade up through high school.
See Sarah if you have any questions, and plan to come on January 25 if you are interested. You may reach Sarah at 665-2615 or at snovak(at)flcls.org
FLC Mission Trips of the past
In the summer of 2008 First Lutheran youth took part in our first-ever Youthworks mission trip. A group of 16 ventured to downtown Minneapolis and did various mission projects in an urban setting that year. In the years since then, our youth have taken part in Youthworks missions trip to St. Paul, MN, and among Native American communities on the Leech Lake Reservation near Cass Lake, MN, and on the Cheyenne River Reservation, in SD.
In 2013 and 2014 we again went to the metropolitan areas of Thunder Bay, Ontario and Kansas City, MO with Youthworks. Additionally we have had local mission opportunities. All of them have been very worth-while experiences for the participants to be the “hands and feet of Christ” alongside other Christian youth.
In 2015 we did a local mission trip. During the summer of 2016 we participated in a Family Mission Trip through Youth Works to Yankton SD.
