Spirit Lake Mission Trip
Registration is now open for our Mission Trip this upcoming summer. Hopefully we can answer some of your main questions below. You can email us if you have any further questions. Thanks!
WHAT IS THIS MISSION TRIP ABOUT?
We will be going and working with Missionaries Mike & Libby Flowers to help share the love of God at Spirit Lake Reservation.
How will we share the love of God?
· Through the act of helping people’s physical needs (helping with projects such as construction, repairs, clean up, and roofing)
· Through the relationships with the people who’s houses we work on
· Through the children we meet at Day Camp
(Day Camp is an optional participation opportunity each day).
· Through the people we get to know and spend time with at the Ministry Center from other areas (usually one or two other churches staying there also)
· Through our relationships with each other over the course of the whole trip
