Spring Break Mission Trip

Spring Break Trip SmallPurpose: The purpose of this trip is to provide assistance for families in Dickinson, TX who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. In the community of Dickinson, families are still rebuilding and feeling the effects of one of the most devastating hurricanes in our countries history. We will be joining the Galveston County Long Term Rebuilding Organization in partnership with World Renew and Merge Ministries through the Evangelical Covenant Church. We will be primarily participating in construction projects throughout the week while learning more about the long term effects of the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey.

When: March 9-16, 2019

Who Can Come? The trip is especially designed for anyone High School through adult ages. For families who would like to bring younger children or students, we ask that they be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. We plan to take a maximum of 20 people.

What skills are required? Any basic home improvement skills (painting, light carpentry) are definitely appreciated, but you don’t need to be handy to participate in this project. Our goal is that 25% of our team (4-5 people) are experienced and confident with home improvement projects. (People who would be described as “handy”.)

How much does it cost? The total cost for the week is $200. This includes a $50 non-refundable deposit that is due at the time of registration. This fee covers all of the expenses of the week.

Registration Deadline: Sunday Feb. 3 ($50 deposit)

What do I need to bring? Tools will be provided. We will be staying at Kingdom City Church located in Houston, so participants should plan on bringing air mattresses, cots or sleeping on the floor. Participants should pack clothing that you can work and get dirty in.

Who is leading the trip? Our trip leader is Alexia Lang, our new Director of Student Ministries.

High School Summer Mission Trip

High School Mission Trip SlideThis summer, July 6-13, our students will embark on a cultural immersion mission trip – without ever leaving the country. We’re partnering with the Covenant’s Merge Ministries to put together this trip that will take us to the heart of the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. Dale Lusk, International Director of Global Engagements for the Evangelical Covenant Church, will walk with us during the week as we serve in towns and Covenant congregations with a large number of immigrants. One part of the trip will be service. We’ll dive into home repairs, community projects and even some fun children’s ministry events. The second component of the trip is more challenging. Like international mission trips, this trip will allow us to experience new cultures, both in their approaches to daily life and worship. It will be an opportunity to learn new perspectives and meet new people. We’ll hear stories from some who have immigrated here, we hope to have a chance to hear from a border patrol agent and Dale will share with us about the Covenant’s commitment to timely dialogue surrounding immigration. The goal is not to sway opinions, but simply to hear stories. We recognize that we, as humans, will always have different opinions on subjects. But the art of open dialogue and goodwill despite differences is being lost. We look to the Bible in these difficult times. And the Bible has many examples of people coming together in goodwill despite differences, think the Good Samaritan and Jesus with tax collectors, etc. We’re exciting for this brand new missional experience.

When? July 6-13, 2019

Where? Our team will stay at the Covenant Church in La Villa, TX. – Iglesia Misionera del Pacto. We will also be serving at People’s Covenant Church in San Juan, TX and Iglesia del Pacto La Trinidad.

Who? Students entering 9th grade through exiting 12th graders

How much? $350 includes transportation, accommodations and meals during the week. Send extra money for two meals on the road. $50 non-refundable deposit due March 10.

Middle School Summer Mission Trip

Mission Peoria2Mission Peoria, for Middle Schoolers, is July 21-27, 2019. For one week, we will spend our days in a rotation of worship and service. Every morning, we begin listening to God’s voice through the Bible, then we head out to work at a local service project. In the afternoon, our serve teams go to a local park or church for Metro Kids, a VBS like program to neighborhood children. During Metro Kids, the students are the leaders. The adults are simply there for support, encouragement and help with problem solving. In the evenings, we return to our home base at Riverside Community Church where we spend the evening in powerful worship and encouraging, insightful small group discussion of the day.
