2021 Mission Trip

The 2021 Sr. High Mission Trip was June 13-18 to Ferncliff camp, about a 9-hour drive, located near Little Rock, Arkansas. Ferncliff is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located just ten miles west of Little Rock, Arkansas. It was founded in 1937 as a place for youth and adults to gather and experience creation in community with one another. Ferncliff is unique in having its own 10,000 sq ft Disaster Assistance Center commonly referred to as “the DAC”. Ferncliff has a covenant relationship with Church World Service (CWS) and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA). The warehouse is one of two centers designated to receive Gift-of-the-Heart kits from churches around the country. While at Ferncliff, we will work in the DAC, on the camp’s sustainable farm and we’ll complete maintenance projects around camp. We plan to work outside as much as possible. For more information on Ferncliff, please visit their website:  www.ferncliff.org.
