Seventeen Trinity teens and four leaders are embarking on a journey which will culminate in a week of ministry in Northern Idaho next June. The older youth will be joing teens from all over the country at Shoshone Base Camp where they will gather to learn about service as a way of life. The youth will be serving the rural poor, as well as spending time in Bible study, relationship building, and outdoor activities. The younger youth will be staying at a camp on Lake Coeur d'Alene, where, as a part of their camp program, they will be working alongside children with disabilities.
All this will happen June 21 - 26, 2015, but before that, there is still a lot of work to do! The trip will cost the team about $400 per person, and the fundraising has already begun! (That's where the Christmas wreaths come in!)
There are several things that the youth have decided to do in order to raise money for the trip. Here are some of them:
1) Christmas Wreath Sale (runs through Sunday Nov. 9th): Support the team as you purchase locally grown, harvested, and handmade wreaths. Contact Mindy Nash with questions (click here).
2) Trinity's Talent Show & Dinner. Skip cooking dinner and join Trinity community for dinner and entertainment on Friday, November 21st, 5;30 - 7:30. Click to here to sign up! Click here for more details.
3) Monthly Babysitting Fundraisers. Two responsible adults and a swarm of teens will monthly babysitting fundraisers at the church on Saturday nights as you do your shopping, chores or a date with your spouse. Stay tuned for the dates of the upcoming offerings.
4) Youth for Hire. If you can use some help with yard work, organizing that garage, pet-sitting, dog-walking, or babysitting oru teens would love to help. Money is to be paid directly to Trinity and will applied to the teen's fundraising account. Minimum payment for the hired hands is $10/hr. Any contributions over $8/hr are tax deductible. Questions? Contact Julia Corbett here.
