Our Summer mission trip in 2019 will be to Nashville, TN. We will be participating in a “Week of Hope” mission trip with Group Mission Trips July 13-20, 2019. This trip builds on existing partnerships with local ministries and nonprofit organizations in Nashville. This year’s trip theme is Relentless and is based upon the stories of David.
All participants must fill out the online registration form No later than May 15.
Haymarket Church Student Cell Phone Policy for Mission Trips
We would prefer NO PHONES for the entire week. We DO NOT allow phones during our time at camp. (All adults will have phones and students are welcome to call home as needed.)
Students may bring phones and will be allowed to use them on Saturday & Friday (travel days). Phones must be turned in Saturday evening when we arrive at our stop-over location. Phones will be charged for students (if a charger has been provided) and returned to students on Friday morning to take final photos and get contact information from new friends and to use during the travel home.
Students will be responsible for 4 fast-food meals on the way to/from Nashville. (Saturday dinner, Sunday lunch, Friday lunch and dinner) Students should bring enough spending money to cover those meals. (Kim is happy to hold the ‘travel home’ money if that is helpful to your student for budgeting purposes.) Occasionally, work teams will stop for an ice cream or a treat on the way back from worksites, so having a few extra dollars for that is helpful but not required.
On Tuesday afternoon students and leaders will visit Nashville Shores Waterpark for our ‘free night’ adventure. Waterpark tickets and dinner have been taken care of. If your student desires additional snack/games/etc. money for this adventure, he or she should be sure to bring it.
Packing for the Trip
We will be stopping on Saturday night at a church ½ way to our destination. We will NOT be unpacking all the luggage for this brief stop. Students need to pack a backpack with clothes for sleeping on Saturday and for Sunday travels.
See online packing list.
Stat tuned for specific trip departure times and details.
We will leave AFTER LUNCH on Saturday, July 13 to travel halfway to our destination.
About Our Trip
Students will be working on projects that seek to meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults. We won’t know exactly what our projects are until closer to time but can expect to work with people in settings like homeless shelters, soup kitchens, camps for low-income children, and more.
