Our Wilmington Mission Trip is something new for DCPC Youth! We will be headed to the city of Wilmington, NC to serve in a variety of local ministries including soup kitchens and home repair. This trip is organized by Vigilant Hope, a longtime youth-focused mission trip ministry that has worked in Wilmington for years and established great local relationships. Our middle and high schoolers will be grouped together for travel and sleeping arrangements but will have the chance to serve in groups made up of members of all the different represented churches (including Harrisburg UMC and Steele Creek Presbyterian). During the evening we will come together for fun and games and worship. This is a great way to serve a population that the Bible has made it a priority to serve!
When July 8-11
Who Can Go Middle & high schoolers (current 6th to 12th graders)
Financial Assistance We do not want this fee to be an obstacle to anyone who wants to go. DCPC’s Journey Fund is in place to help pay for trips like this. Click here to find out more and apply to the Journey Fund for assistance.
Registration Window Now through March 25.
Next Steps To get on the list, pay the $200 fee by March 25th. The payment can be made in the church office by check or online (be sure to add “Chattanooga MT Deposit” in the memo field).
Minimums Unlike our conference trips, this is a new trip for us and therefore kind of an experiment. In order to do this trip, we will require a minimum of 5 youth and 1 female leader signed up by March 25 to make this trip possible. All fees will be refunded if we do not reach our minimum.
Cancellations DCPC will be making payments to Vigilant Hope in advance of the actual trip which often makes it impossible to recoup fees in the case of cancellation. In other words: we will do our best but can’t make any promises. In some cases registration and fees can be transferred to another youth on the wait list.
