Summary

Immanuel Lutheran Church high school students will travel to Chattanooga, Tennessee in Jun. 2020 and work with the residents on home repair and maintenance. The trip is organized by Group Mission Trip Workcamps, which charges $468 per person for this particular mission experience. It is necessary for trip participants to raise funds needed for transportation costs over and above the registration fee charged by Group. Go Grants is one way you can help support this mission effort!

 

 

Organization Description and History

Group Mission Trips develops service experiences to help people grow in their relationships with Jesus and each other. Following a catastrophic flood in Colorado in 1976, Thom Schultz, founder of Group Publishing, organized church youth groups from across the country to come help rebuild the homes and lives of the flood victims. More than 300 teenagers and their youth leaders worked on more than 50 repair projects. Since then, more than 450,000 mission trip participants have racked up more than 13 million volunteer hours serving people in need.

 

 

Background

Immanuel’s Student Ministry has participated in mission trips across the Midwest since 2008. Previous trips include Parsons, Kansas [2008], Hawley, Minnesota [2009], Hurricane, West Virginia [2011], Greenville, Michigan [2012], Glenwood, Minnesota [2014], Waterloo, Iowa [2015], and Rushville, Indiana [2017]; and Elkview, West Virginia [2018]. More than 150 different students have participated, with 29 different chaperones working alongside them. Each year trip participants work to earn the funding needed to participate in these mission trips.

 

 

Project Description

Chattanooga, Tennessee is a city rich in history, natural beauty, and bustling activity. Located in southeastern Tennessee right along the Tennessee River and the Georgia border, this city has a definitive Southern flavor. Students will be working throughout the city to do exterior painting for residents and installing mobile home skirting to help protect homes during the winter months. Projects may also include constructing wheelchair ramps for aging homeowners, and constructing and repairing porches.
