Mission Trips

One of the most important commitments of our church is to our yearly Youth Mission Trip.

Since 2007, First Church has participated in a week long summer mission trip in the United States.  We work with Group Mission Trips to select our trip and we raise the funds we need to attend through diverse and fun fundraisers. 

In July of 2017, our mission trip was to Cedar Grove, West Virginia.

While at mission trip, we are able to dig in and learn more about our own faith and to provide hope and home repairs to those in need.

Each year about 40 youth and adult volunteers from our congregation travel to underserved communities throughout the United States to help repair homes, and interact with the people of these communities as well as other youth groups from around the country.

This annual trip is available to youth going into the 9th grade in the fall through age 20.  It is very meaningful, exciting and looked forward to by all who attend. 

To date, we have traveled as far away as New Mexico and as close as New Jersey.  We have a beautiful country and many need some extra faith and support and we are excited to be there for them!

This has been such an immensely rewarding and popular mission project that we recently committed to partner with Group Mission Trips to host the Wallingford Workcamp Team, a work camp experience in our local community.
