how does this work?
“If I want to go on a trip, what do I need to do?” “When I sign up, what am I signing up for?” If you are considering a Short-Term Mission Experience (STME), these may be just a few of the questions that you have. Here’s an overview of your 3-step process to get you acclimated.
1. register for your team
Pray about participating in a STME, and research where we serve. You can find information on the website, by talking to Pastor Wood or Jessica Ramdohr, and by talking to past STME participants.
Find a date/site that works for you, complete the application and turn in your $100 deposit to Jessica Ramdohr or Pastor Wood in the church office. Upcoming trip dates/sites can be found both on the STME application and on a Save the Date at the information counter.
2. prepare with your team
You will prepare in 10 weekly meetings with your team. These times will give you a change to bond as a team, learn about the place you will serve, prepare spiritually for your trip, and work on any preparations for your specific projects. Your meeting times will be based on your team’s schedule.
3. serve with your team
While you are on site, you will work together, do devotions together, and serve together.
after you come home
Your STME will bring change to your life and walk with Jesus. In order to get the most out of your experience, your team will meet together and apply what God is teaching you in this experience to your daily life at home.
