Mission Trip Stock Sale This year, our rising 9th-12th graders, recent graduates, and adult chaperones will travel July 20-27 for a summer youth mission trip to Appalachia, an area rich in resources and beautiful landscapes, but scarred by floods and economic hardships due to the decline of the mining, steel, and manufacturing industries. Our ministry team will tackle various projects in the hopes of uplifting a local church and infusing fresh hope into the community. A rise in homelessness and drug abuse has fractured the hearts of many, and hopelessness is all too common in the region. You are invited to invest in this work by participating in our annual “Stock Sale.” Shareholders will receive a stock certificate, daily e-mail updates from the mission trips with photos and news, and a seat at the popular “Shareholder’s Luncheon” in the Fall when the youth will talk about the trip and share a slideshow of their mission work. These trips are life-changing for our youth and chaperones who participate, and for the communities we serve, and we cannot do it without your support. Please visit the display outside the common room after worship beginning Sunday, May 5, to purchase your stock.
