YOUTH MISSION TRIP INFORMATION
Dear Parents and Teens,
Are you looking for volunteer hours this summer? Are you looking for an awesome experience where you help others, have fun, meet youth from around the country and experience God together?
Then Longview Chapel has an opportunity for you this summer as we head to Memphis, Tennessee June 29 - July 3 with the national Youth Disciples Mission Trip! We’ll be sleeping in real beds (a big deal if you’ve slept on the floor before), have fun events each night following worship and get to build memories and make friends from all over the country.
More information will be available as we receive it. Contact our Youth Director, Amy Beckett if you'd like to know more about the trip and our programs for youth.
