Youth Mission Trips
Our youth have traveled both internationally, to other states, and to the poorest parts of Colorado to participate in mission work. CYF (our high school group for youth in grades 9-12) has traveled to Chicago, Los Angeles, an Indian Reservation in South Dakota, Mexico, Costa Rica, Texas, and other places to serve in orphanges and soup kitchens, as well as completing many rebuilding projects in poverty-stricken or disaster ravaged areas. Youth also have the opportunity to attend a Fall Retreat with other Disciples congregations where mission is a key element of the weekend. Opportunities for mission for high school aged youth are typically announced in January.
Our Chi Rho youth (grades 6-8) trips in the past have included planning, cooking, and serving two meals per day at the La Puente Shelter in Alamosa, Colorado, and traveling to do various mission services in Laramie, Wyoming. This opportunity is usually announced in the spring.
Alternative Tour to Israel and Palestine
Each year, Jeff & Janet Wright lead a Global Ministries People-to-People pilgrimage to Israel and Palestine, seeing the holy sites and Global Ministries mission partners, and visiting with Muslims, Jews and Christians. You can learn about their January 30-February 10, 2015 trip at In the Footsteps
