WORKCAMPS (Mission Trips)

 

 

At Pass-A-Grille Beach UCC, we pride ourselves on being a mission church...

 

We believe that one of the greatest ways we have to show our love for God and for others is by the way we serve them.  Our goal is to help youth learn how to live out their faith by the way they care for others!  Whether it is through a Workcamp, or a few hours spent preparing food for the homeless, we believe in serving others.


One of the greatest ministries our youth programming provides is the opportunity for our youth to travel to various sites every summer and experience the joy that comes from giving of one’s self.   We have committed to taking the senior high youth overseas once every four years so that each of them will have the opportunity during their high school years, to experience life in a culture very different from their own. These Workcamps have been life changing experiences, not only for the individual youth involved, but for the entire group.

 

We seek to find new ways to reach out to our local community through service projects and volunteering as well.

Summer of 2022...

 

WAVE will be traveling to Imperial, Pennsylvania,  June 16 - 24, 2023

 

Pittsburgh, along with its surrounding neighborhoods like Imperial, is a place of pride, positive people, and endless possibilities. You don’t have to look far to see the genuine need of the elderly residents in the North Fayette Township communities. An aged population where many younger residents have headed south for warmer winters has left senior citizens without help for basic home maintenance.

 

An area deep in history of the bygone days of the Industrial Boom when steel, coal and oil fueled the national economy, Western Pennsylvania is home to the confluence where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers meet to form the Ohio River; known as the Three Rivers region. The local residents take great pride in their sports teams as well, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins and Pirates. There is so much to do, so much to choose from, in a city of three rivers, three major league sports teams, and dozens of recreation possibilities within the region and immediately beyond.

 

You do not have to look farther than the West Allegheny local Food Pantry to see the genuine need of the elderly residents in the North Fayette Township communities. An aged population where many younger residents have headed south for warmer winters has left senior citizens without help for basic home maintenance. They are always eager to receive and give a smile to those they meet!

Riptide will be traveling to Charleston, South Carolina ~ July 9-14, 2023

 

 

Week of Hope is packed with practical acts of love and service. Students build meaningful connections as they serve people through our strong partnerships with local ministries and nonprofit organizations. They'll learn Christ-like empathy and compassion for others as they meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults.

 

Located along the beautiful Atlantic coastline, Charleston, South Carolina, is known for its rich blend of history, faith, and scenery. Sites such as Rainbow Row and the Charleston Battery are breathtaking and memorable. Some places have even appeared in the films The Notebook and The Patriot.

Not far away you’ll find North Charleston, a fast-paced and growing community with many things to see and do. The city is known for its historical plantations, gardens, and parks, as well as some of the country’s finest cultural events.

 

But just as importantly, the community is the proud home to numerous churches and organizations that are intertwined with city life and share a passion for making a difference in people’s lives. You’ll be inspired as you hear the stories and serve alongside the people at these amazing organizations helping the elderly and assisting low income children.
