Summer Service and Learning Trip

7th and 8th Grade | June 11th – June 17th

For the summer of 2022, we’re headed to Milwaukee WI! Serve Boldly (The ministry partner that we work with) seeks to respond to our neighbors in need by working with those who are already caring for the city. There is a developed network of ELCA congregations and ministry sites that we serve alongside to meet the needs of the people. Much of our work in Milwaukee is focused on hunger and children, but we are committed to meeting whatever needs our friends and local leaders identify.

Of course, we still have time to enjoy this beautiful lake city and its unique local gems like the Harley-Davidson Museum.

Total Cost: $650.00 per student / $300.00 with fundraising 

$100 deposit is due upon registration. Scholarships are available if needed; please indicate in the registration

Space is limited, so register NOW or if you have questions, please contact the trip lead Pastor Ben
