For many years running, Union Church of Lake Bluff teenagers pile into rental vans and head to Missouri on a summer work trip to volunteer their time. Coming in 2019, with our record-setting number of attendees, is a change in venue! This promises to be an exciting opportunity and youth and adults are eagerly anticipating the annual trip.
The group also spends time helping those in need from the surrounding community, attending to tasks such as building wheelchair ramps and painting houses.
We are grateful for the work trip, for all the wonderful youth who go each year, for the amazing adults who take vacation time to sweat and work hard, and for the residents and the campers we come to know. There is no more powerful experience of faith in action than this trip!
