Deadline for Alaska Mission Trip This Week

Summer is a long way off but this Thursday (February 28th) is the deadline to sign up and place a deposit on our summer trip to Willow, Alaska.   We will be leaving Knoxville on June 28th bound for Alaska for one week.  The purpose of the trip is to build a closer relationship with Rev. Fran Lynch, the Holston conference's own missionary based in Willow.  Church Street supports her ministry each year and we look forward to this opportunity to learn more about the work she is doing on our behalf.   The team will be working several projects around Willow including cutting firewood alongside local families, reading to children in the summer program at the Willow library, and helping out in the food pantry.  We'll also have a brief opportunity to take in some of the natural beauty of Alaska.  The cost of the trip is $1,500 and includes travel, lodging, most meals, mission supplies, and insurance.    

If you are interested in joining the team or need more information, please contact Associate Pastor Darryll Rasnake at drasnake@churchstreetumc.org or 521-0279.
