Epworth 2017

July 20-23, 2017 | Grades 7-12 | $175


Epworth is a regional mission trip to St. Simons Island, Georgia, designed as a foundation for missions beyond our community. The Epworth experience proves valuable in that middle school students will be exposed to labor intensive mission work prior to going on more in-depth high school mission trips regionally and internationally. We will have the opportunity to build relationships with one another and also with those who we will be serving in the St. Simons/Brunswick area. The Epworth mission trip is open to all students in grades 7-12, and high school students who desire to participate will be placed in a leadership role on the mission trip.

All who attend will experience two days of rewarding mission work, evening worship and activities, morning devotionals, small group times, beach and pool fellowship time, dinner out on St. Simons, and time to souvenir shop and/or play putt-putt miniature golf in downtown St. Simons.

What is the trip cost?

$175 to be paid in full by Thursday, July 20, 2017.

This cost covers 3-nights lodging, 7 meals from the Epworth dining hall, trip supplies, dinner out in St. Simon’s, and event t-shirts.
