Winter MC! FAQ's.
WHO is this for?
You! This ministry is based to involve both middle and high school students in off-season mission work and worship, with adult leaders working alongside the youth.
However, due to resource restrictions, there will be a 75 person cap. So don't wait to register or you might miss your chance!
WHAT is this?
A winter weekend mini-mission trip, including a full mission work day, two nights of worship, and meals as a group.
Why wait until the summer to serve with your team?
WHERE are we staying?
We are staying at Yardley United Methodist Church in Yardley, PA. This is where we will eat, sleep, and worship.
During the day on Saturday we will go and serve in our surrounding community.
WHEN is this happening?
MLK Jr.'s Weekend, January 17th-19th, 2020.
We will arrive on Friday night at 7:30 pm for welcome and worship, and to get sorted into crews.
On Saturday we will serve at several sites ranging from construction/clean up to relational in areas such as Yardley, Trenton, and Philadelphia, and end the day with worship.
After worship on Saturday you are either welcome to head home with your group or stay for another night to relax with your youth and have a night of retreat. Breakfast would be provided and you would be welcome to join in worship with the YUMC congregation. We would be happy to help organize a plan for your group to shower if that should be helpful. Just let the MyCalling! staff know in advance if you plan to stay a second night!
WHAT is the cost?
The registration fee is $50 per person to cover T-Shirts, Saturday meals and Sunday breakfast, and supplies.
"Our MyCalling! summer weeks have been transformational. The team always comes back ready to help in our own area. We can't wait to participate in this winter mini retreat!"
- Casey Smith, Youth Minister
"Off season Missions is such a great idea! Around January, I start to get really excited about the summer/nostalgic for this past year. The timing of this winter retreat couldn't be better!"
- Joseph Thomas, High School Student
"The winter can be a lonely time for me. It is hard to get anywhere, and it is hard enough for me to take care of myself, let alone my house. Having people willing to help me especially at that time of year is such a blessing."
- Minnie Piper, Philadelphia Resident
