School’s out, and we’re ready to party. On June 3, we’re heading to Carowinds. Register online HERE. Arrive at the Crosswalk by 7:30 a.m. and bring a bag lunch and money for a fast food dinner. We’ll return to the Crosswalk at 11:30 p.m.
New York City is the capital of the world and is home to people from every habitable continent. Moreover, it is a major source of cultural influence. If we’re serious about taking the gospel to the nations and engaging culture at its heart, NYC is a strategic place for missional involvement! That’s why we’re excited to partner with an SBC church plant called New-City Church in Long Island City to advance God’s Kingdom in the Big Apple. We will be staying at the New York School of Urban Ministry, and each day, we’ll be working alongside New-City Church to serve the local community and to make inroads for the gospel there. And we’re also going to have a ton of fun along the way.
We’ve worked hard to keep the cost of this mission trip as low as possible because we want every student to participate. We will have some fundraisers leading up to our trip, including the Student Choir Dinner Theater on March 5, in order to lower the cost of the trip even further. We also have partial scholarships available. Additionally, we would encourage students to look for opportunities on their own to earn money toward the cost of their trip.
Meals (with the exception of fast food travel meals and 3 meals in the city)
Students are further required to complete a mission trip application (HERE), to perform 12 hours of community service by July 2, and to attend all NYC training sessions. If a student is unable to attend because of a school function or a family trip, arrangements must be made to make up for missing the training session (let Ricky know ASAP if you have a scheduling conflict with any of the training dates).
Training Sessions will meet in the Crosswalk on the following Sundays:
April 2 (5:30-7:30 p.m.)
May 7 (3:30-5:30 p.m.)
June 4 (3:30-5:30 p.m.)
July 9 (5:30-7:30 p.m.)
Each participant must turn in a signed AND notarized Berea FBC Permission and Medical Release Form (available HERE) in order to attend.
