NOVEMBER 11-14, 2021 (Thursday afternoon through Sunday morning)
WHAT WILL WE DO?
We will be working with Community Missions of Niagara Frontier and will do things like:
Work in the kitchen preparing meals and then serving them
Work in the community food pantry sorting and distributing food
Do gardening and landscaping at the mission center as our skills permit
Paint and do maintenance to the center as our skills permit
Work in the clothes closet sorting and distributing clothing
There will be many opportunities to become acquainted with the clients at the center. You already be doing these types of things at your church. Here you will see them done in a different context and learn how you might build your local ministry.
WHERE WILL WE STAY? We will stay at the Stella Niagara Retreat Center (www.StellaNiagaraRetreats.org). If you cannot stay the whole time, your cost will be adjusted. The trip is flexible so participants may arrive and depart as they need.
WHAT DOES IT COST? Cost for the full trip is $270.00. This covers lodging, 3 breakfasts, 3 lunches and 3 dinners. It also covers some project/material costs as well. If a person is present for less than the full time, they may request that their cost be reduced proportionally.
INTERESTED? Complete the application below and send to the ABCNYS office. Deadline for completed application: October 21, 2021. The trip is limited to 10 participants by Community Missions of the Niagara Frontier. We will create a waiting list in case Community Missions liberalizes their policy,
