FAMILY MISSION TRIP
Once known for its thriving steel industry, Pittsburgh has earned a reputation today for its food, art, and culture scene. About 2.5 million people live in the metro area. Because of its affordable cost of living, the city seems to be growing by the day, yet the number of active churches is not. It’s time for that to change.
Send Relief is a collaboration of the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board and aims to partner with local churches and organizations already engaged in the region to fight against poverty and eradicate food insecurity, homelessness, and illiteracy in this awesome city.
Join LifePark as we partner alongside Send Relief to give practical assistance, make personal connections, and share the gospel to the Pittsburgh community April 9 – 15.
Anyone 12 years old or older is encouraged to join us (must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older). This trip will take place during Charleston County School District’s Spring Break, making this ideal for Middle and High School students and their families!
Don’t have a Middle School or High School student? No problem, we would still love for you to join us on this trip!
Projects will consist of various forms of community engagement in the Pittsburgh community. These could include homeless outreach ministries, community-wide outreach such as feeding events or block parties, and supporting local church planting ministries.
What types of services or projects will we be doing? Service projects may vary but look something like:
• Helping with the prep and execution of Food Banks
• Organizing the packing and delivery of backpacks for the homeless
• Organizing the packing of backpacks for kids in the foster care system
• Helping with the prep and execution of meals for the community
• Assisting SEND churches in the area with putting on block parties, meals, or other events for their community.
