2018 Trip to New England
This summer, June 23-29, 2018, we have the opportunity to travel to New England to work alongside one of our partners in ministry, Christ the Redeemer Church in Quechee, Vermont.
About Christ the Redeemer: In 2015, the congregation of Quechee Community Church faced a decline in church-goers and financial hardship. After exploring many options, they decided to close their doors and sell the building. The remaining members of Quechee Community Church saw their beautiful, late-1800s church as a central part of the village and longed for its legacy of Christian ministry to continue in Quechee. In 2016, members of the Quechee congregation approached the elders of Christ Redeemer Church with the possibility of stepping in and purchasing the building as a possible church planting or church revitalization opportunity.
Christ Redeemer Church purchased the property in June 2016. Since that time, volunteers and contractors have participated in maintenance and upkeep of the building. The building has also been used for community Bible studies, Vacation Bible School, and other community events.
Cost: $600 per person (includes airfare/lodging/most of your meals)
Location: Christ the Redeemer, Quechee, VT
Trip Description: Working alongside Christ the Redeemer church plant in Vermont. Helping to do several service projects in the area, serve the body of Christ the Redeemer.
Lodging: We will be staying in an Airbnb not far from the church we will be serving.
June 23: Fly into Boston, drive to Quechee, VT
June 24-28: Work on and serve the church in Quechee, take one of those days to visit other NETS church plants in the area
June 29: Fly back to Houston
Personal Commitment: We desire participants who are believers in Jesus Christ and are working to demonstrate a Christ-like heart to serve, share, grow, and work together as a team. Mission Trips are marked with built-in “opportunities” that press people to be flexible, sacrificial and humble.
Team Commitment: We will have 2-3 team meetings before the trip that team members would be expected to attend. Most of these meetings will be on Sunday’s mornings.
