JULY 8-13, 2018



A mission trip to Colorado is being coordinated by English Lutheran Church of Bateman. This trip is open to St. James Trinity youth, grades 7-12.  Participants will partner with others seeking to bring hope to the residents of Denver, who are experiencing changes and challenges in their community. Opportunities for participants include:


    • serving local food shelves, nursing homes and children’s programs
    • meeting a local pastor who brings Sidewalk Sunday School into different neighborhoods, thereby providing a safe place for kids to learn about God’s love
    • worshiping while taking in beautiful mountain views
    • learning about poverty and homelessness through interactive activities
    • hearing from local residents about what it looks like to live and serve in Denver
    • enjoying a community cookout


The cost is $289 for the program, which does not include transportation or other costs. The church will help by conducting fund-raising activities to help off-set costs. Each participant will need to provide a $50 deposit, due by October 8th. Watch for more information in the mail or contact Pastor Rick, Zoe Volger at Bateman, or Suellen Hageness at St. James Trinity.
