A trip to connect, to serve, to learn, and to grow. Why Alabama? To explore racial history in America in a place uniquely suited to do that and to take ourselves and our church to a new understanding of God's Kingdom and what His call is upon us in light of that.
We’ll also be getting our hands dirty serving alongside partners in community. We may be renovating homes, feeding neighbors, and basically serving where our partners indicate the greatest needs exist. While we’re currently not clear on the serve opportunities, what we are clear about is this - God will use you to have impact. We’re confident you’ll also find your life being impacted along the way.
What we'll be doing in Alabama
Serve. For many years, the economically neglected and distressed community on the west side of Montgomery has been under-resourced (google “Washington Park - home to Campsite 4 on the historic trail from Selma to Montgomery”). We’re partnering with organizations that are committed to this neighborhood with God-sized visions. Whether renovating homes, feeding community, or serving in any number of ways, we need all skill levels.
Connect. We’ll develop and deepen relationships with others from your site, your site leadership, and the partners and people we meet in Alabama as you bond through a unique experience and shared mission. In the midst of this, your relationship with God may grow to a new place as well.
Learn. We’ll visit world-class museums and monuments to explore racial history in America and take ourselves and our church to a new understanding of God's Kingdom and what His call is upon us. (And you'll have some fun along the way…that’s important too!)
