At SullivanFirst we have an opportunity for high school students to attend a week each Summer serving at a work camp through Group Mission Trips. During this week of camp, students get placed into teams with other students and adult leaders and have the opportunity to work on a resident's house in the community in which we work in. This work could range from interior or exterior painting, building a ramp, fixing a fence, or repairing a front porch. Students are challenged to grow in their faith as they interact with evening programs and worship experiences while serving others. While it only lasts a week, the impact from a work camp lasts a lifetime.
This year's mission team headed to Wilmington, NC June 17-25 and spent a week of camp working in this community! Our theme this year is The Road and throughout the week students joined others on this journey of faith and learned more about followers of Jesus who were traveling to Emmaus.
