Youth Mission Trip

July 7 - 13

Albuquerque, NM, USA

We have 16 slots for this summer’s Mission Trip. Northway youth and sponsors will travel to Albuquerque, NM for a Be The Neighbor experience the week of July 7-13. We will need to make a firm confirmation of the participant list by March 1. You can learn more about the trip and fill out the registration form here.

Youth grades 6-12 and adults will spend the week in Albuquerque to learn will about the area’s long and diverse cultural history, and will also have the opportunity to visit the historic site of one of the 19 indigenous Pueblos. The week will include both service and educational experiences. Our group will speak daily with expert guest leaders, visit the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, spend a day in a local Pueblo area, learn about the Doctrine of Discovery, and have conversations about practicing cultural humility. We will have time together each evening for a justice-based Bible study and discussion focused on learning about root causes, systemic issues, policy and advocacy, so that when we return to our community we will have new awareness, understanding, and vision to work for justice beyond the mission trip week.

Group trip leaders include Chesna Riley and Rachel Schawler. Trip organizer is Pastor Ken Crawford. Please contact the church office to sign up and with any questions.

Once registered, we will contact you to submit a brief medical form with emergency contact information and release of liability.
