ABOUT MISSION TRIPS…

Each year, senior high youth participate in a week long mission trip scheduled over the February or April public school vacation week. Past trips have been to Miami, Biloxi, Puerto Rico, San Antonio, Los Angeles, Kentucky, New Mexico, Jamaica, West Virginia and Black Mesa, AZ to work on projects for those in need due to poverty or natural disaster.

When you sign up for the Mission Trip, you are agreeing to attend all the preparatory meetings and participate in the Mission Trip worship service when we return. Each participant will also have responsibility for participating in some fundraising leading up to the trip.  



 2017 Youth Group Mission Trip 
Black Mesa, AZ (Navajo Nation)
April 15-22, 2017

In February of 2014, the Youth Group Mission Trip visited the Navajo Nation in Crownpoint, New Mexico. While there, we served a proud people in a stunning landscape. For our 2017 trip, we have chosen to visit a different part of the Navajo Nation.

Black Mesa is located in the high desert of northwestern Arizona, between the Grand Canyon and Four Corners National Monument. It is rural, with the closest city being Flagstaff, AZ, about 150 miles away. And it is mountainous, ranging from 5000 to over 8000 feet above sea level. It is believed that the Navajo, Hopi, and Apache have populated the area for over 7000 years.

There is no doubt that the need is great. Because a lack of economic development, unemployment among the Navajo is very high. Further, alcoholism and drugs are severe issues. Many of the older people do not speak English, and their children are often unemployed or have moved away, so there is a great need to care for the elderly. For some it is a struggle to keep adequate food and nutrition, and proper home maintenance is at times unattainable. Often Navajo live in trailers that were poorly constructed and have been used far beyond their adequate functionality. Many houses and trailers are structurally unstable or leaking, creating a need for improved living conditions.
