2019 Senior High Mission Trip

In 2019, SHF traveled to Oregon, Illinois June 16-22 for their mission trip. While there, the youth replaced, scraped and painted cedar on the building that they slept in and they installed windows and enclosed an outdoor pavilion with screen. Each night they enjoyed Bible Study and a campfire. For their fun day, they floated down the Rock River in tubes and had a picnic lunch.
