10:45-11:15am Information Meeting for South Africa Mission Trip (youth room)

There is a conversation starting about a Mission Trip to South Africa in March 0f 2020. As a family begin thinking about this opportunity and experience. It will coincide with part of ASD Spring Break, and we are encouraging youth and their parents to be a part of this team. We'll have an interest meeting in the next few weeks. 

Parents, while your youth is enjoying faith growth opportunities, please consider joining opportunities for your own faith growth.

2019 Youth Mission Immersion Update!

We had over 80 youth and adults participate in our Youth Mission Immersion! It was a great, soul filling weekend of worship, fun, fellowship and service to others. I am so proud of our youth and all that they do to make this world a little better place. Thank you also to all of our wonderful adults who helped and to the families for supporting your youth as they chose to spend their time volunteering.
