Spring Break Trips 2019

Registration for all trips will open on January 10th!

Please note that you must register for your trip prior to paying the deposit for your trip!

We are excited about learning how to live out core values as a church community! So this year we are having five trips that focus on them. Take a look at these trips and decide which is best for you! If you are interested in one of our international spring break trips, please click here!

Please contact the trip leaders (listed below) if you have any questions regarding a trip.

The GRACE of God truly is amazing.  No matter where you are in your journey of faith – from exploring and full of questions to living in deep intimacy and maturity – GRACE plays an important role.  That’s why we are going to spend a week in Florida centered around God’s GRACE, and why we would love to have you join us!  Whether you are brand new to the Christian faith or have been walking with Christ for years, we believe this trip has the potential to radically transform both our individual lives and our community.  

Plus, there’s the added bonuses of time at the beach, opportunities to meet new people, time at the beach, sunshine, time at the beach, and of course, time at the beach in the sunshine with cool new people that you just met.  We will even have a chance to do some community service, to engage with some of the members of the church that is hosting us, and maybe even spend a free day at an Orlando theme park or learning to surf!

So come join us!  You probably can’t find a trip down to Florida for the cost of this trip and you certainly won’t find another one full of the people we hope will be there.  We encourage you to take a step of faith and see what God might do!

Join us in Destin for a week full of faith as we boldly engage the local beach scene in spiritual conversations and look for opportunities to love on the community in action and word as we pursue being a community that is SENT. Our lodging accommodations will be within walking distance from the Gulf of Mexico, and we will travel a few miles farther to get to more populated areas of the beach to pursue the community. Whether you’ve never shared your faith before or it’s a spiritual discipline woven into your everyday life, we expectantly trust God will use this week to strengthen, build up, and refine your faith. One of the best ways to experience God’s grace anew is to share it with others. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome (1 John 5:3).

In a society that is so focused on productivity, work, and success how do we prioritize rest? Together we want to look beyond what the world considers ‘rest’ (like bingeing Netflix or sleeping for 12 hours), and wrestle with the question, what is Biblical rest? Over the course of five days we’ll learn what the Bible teaches about rest, why it’s important for us, and then spend time practicing!  It will be a spiritually refreshing trip as we learn what it means to entrust our daily lives and schedules to the Lord.

Dates: 3/10/19 – 3/15/19

In September, Hurricane Florence tore through North Carolina and destroyed many communities. The initial aid to these communities was helpful, but there is still much work to be done. As a church, we have an amazing opportunity to be the hands & feet of Jesus by helping these communities heal. So come join us as we travel to North Carolina to be part of the redemptive work God is doing there! We will partner with Send Relief (one of the nations largest disaster relief organizations) to rebuild areas hit by the hurricane. This is a great trip for anyone who enjoys serving, or wants to grow in serving others. It’s also a great trip to get to know other people in the church as you work alongside them & connect with them. No construction or carpentry experience is needed!

Join us as we spend spring break just outside of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountain National Park in Tennessee! During the trip, we will be focusing on reading and learning how to study the Bible. Our hope is that this trip would provide a space for us, as a community, to connect more deeply with God through his Word. We believe that engaging with God’s Word produces LIFE TRANSFORMATION.

We will be staying in a lodge at a camp that has hiking trails into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Most days we will engage with different ways to study the Bible, as well as spend ample time reading through a bible reading plan. We will also have some time to go into Gatlinburg, as well as time to hike in the park or relax at the camp!

Dates: 3/9 – 3/15
