Westbrook Youth Mission Trip 2019
The Westbrook Congregational Church is preparing for a mission trip to Frederick, MD this summer, July 13-21.
About the Mission Trip
Not everyone that comes to Youth Group goes on the mission trip in July. For teens that choose to do that, we ask a little more of them. We ask that those teens go beyond the Sunday evening meetings to “try on” a religious life. This means being a part of our Fellowship and their chosen house of worship/church (e.g. attending Sunday morning services at their church). The mission trip experience relies heavily on a group of teens that trust one another which is why we need people that are going on the trip to be present for our lock-in and as many Youth Group meetings as possible.
The company that arranges the trip, Group Mission Trips, has over 40 years’ experience creating intention, safe environments for teens to explore their faith. Each teen from our group is assigned to a different work site with 5 strangers and, through laborious tasks, the teens develop new understanding about themselves, community, and God. Jobs from previous trips have included replacing roofing material, adding decks, building wheelchair ramps, and painting houses. But the real results from previous trips have included vocational callings, restored lives, repaired relationships, and stronger communities.
Join us in the sanctuary for our worship service:
- Traditional service every Sunday morning at 9:45am
- “Second Sunday” Intergenerational, contemporary worship every 2nd Sunday of the month with live band
Nursery and Sunday School @ 9:45 am service
The Rev. Dr. Jan Gregory-Charpentier, Pastor
