Well, it’s DC Encounter time again! We will leave November 16th and return November 19th. This mission trip is for participants in 7th and 8th grade. We will go to Washington DC to serve the homeless, work in DC Kitchen preparing food for soup kitchens and shelter and other related activities. Youth in 10th, 11th and 12th-grade students can go as peer leaders. Only Peer leaders are required to get one reference. Applications and reference sheets for peer leaders will be on the church website www.catchthespirit.org, the Kid zone Sunday school office and Trinity House. The cost of the trip is approximately $200 to $225. (We will have an exact number once the facility we stay at and the bus company give us quotes)
We will have a mandatory meeting (only one) on November 4th at 12 noon in Trinity House. This meeting will be for parents and students. We will collect outstanding fees and paperwork, hand out the itinerary, packing list and adult leader phone numbers. We will give a brief summary of the trip and answer questions. Youth will split from the parents and go with peer leaders to do some “getting to know you activities”.
