July 9-17, Caravan 2022! What is Caravan? Caravan is a week-long mission trip for incoming 9th grade to 12th grade graduates. It’s a chance to travel to a different community where they will serve and deepen their faith without the daily distractions of home. This year we have 17 spaces reserved through Youthworks to serve the community of Logan, West Virginia. This is a rural community. We will learn about the area as we help with kids club, repairs and wherever we are needed. The cost is $1,131 per person. $450 from the youth and the rest through fundraising! St Andrew has been sending youth and the leaders on Caravans for 28 years. St Andrew believes in the amazing changes that happen in youth when they have the opportunity to be a part of Caravan. Join us July 17th as the youth will share their experience as they lead church service at 9am! For information about Youth Group and/or Caravan, please contact Dawne Carver via the church office at [email protected]
