Week Of Hope


Week Of Hope - community service youth mission trips

Grand Rapids, Michigan

This is an opportunity for MIDDLE SCHOOL youth to spend a week together and with youth from other churches serving others.

WHERE:  This year we will be traveling to Grand Rapids, Michigan to participate in Group Mission Trips’ Week of Hope. We will be staying at a beautiful church in Grandville, MI.
Indoor showers will be provided at the YMCA right across the street, with 10 showers per gender. The church does not have air conditioning, so we will need to bring fans. 

WHEN:  We will leave St. Mark’s on Sunday, July 22nd and return to St. Mark’s on Friday, July 27th.

WHO:  Any youth currently in grades 6 through 8 are eligible to attend. In addition, youth must be 12 years of age or older by the time we depart on July 22nd.

COST: $300 per youth. We have reserved 10 spots for youth.

Sign up before the spots fill!
