2018 Youth Mission Trips

The Mid-High mission trip was an URBAN PLUNGE to Lincoln, NE. We “plunged” into ministry learning about the various ethnic cultures in Lincoln. We “plunged” into ministry with the homeless, children in foster care, and the physically and mentally challenged adults.

Nine youth and three sponsors plunged into cleaning at the Cornerstone Family Facility and the Yazidi Cultural Center. The youth assisted with crafts and games at the Salvation Army kids club along with organizing the pantry. At the Mosaic Facility for physically and mentally handicapped residents, the youth pulled weeds and reset bowling pins for the residents’ bowling games. We donated 40 hygiene bags to the Foster Care Closet when we helped them set up for a community meal. Being in mission is not about us — it is about following Jesus’s example of servant hood.  

The Senior High Mission trip was also an URBAN PLUNGE trip but this time to Dallas, TX. The CAUMC youth took the “plunge” to be in mission and ministry to the homeless and to the people living in poverty in South Dallas.

Ten youth and two sponsors became skilled at harvesting vegetables at the Community Gardens and then delivered them to a food pantry. Our detective skills were needed when checking expiration dates on donated food items at Life Message Food Bank. Our cleaning skills were needed at Our Calling — a day center for the homeless. We used our artistic skills as we helped children at the Village Oaks Apartments paint trash cans to replace throughout the complex. And, we handed out 50 hygiene kits at the Dallas International Street Church, where our music skills were called upon during the worship service.  It was a blessing to be able to serve others as Jesus served!

The youth fund their mission trips through football parking.
