2018 Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic: Youth 

33724554325_9f859d86d8_oFUMCCG invites our Youth family members to join us on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic from June 11 - June 17, 2018. To build on last year's efforts to spread God's love and compassion, we need 10 youth (grades 9-12) volunteers. For the first time, our Youth will have a chance to connect one-on-one on a spiritual and personal level with their Dominican counterparts, and join us in building and furnishing 5 classrooms among other efforts - all leading up to the first-ever Christian graduating class in this neighborhood in 2020!
