Youth Missions

Mission Possible is a ministry of First United Methodist Church. Open to youth ages 13 through 18, Mission Possible participants plan and attend one mission trip each summer. The preparation for each mission trip includes team building activities and monthly fundraisers. Mission Possible’s goal is to teach youth to serve different types of families in diverse locations throughout the United States. Through these trips, the program aims to encourage all youth in the community to serve others and grow in their personal journey with Christ.

The Mission Possible 2022 team is preparing for our 2022 summer mission trip with YouthWorks, to Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina. While there, we will be working all week assisting families who are in need of home repair and spiritual growth

This year’s trip has youth from the community and surrounding areas joining our Mission Possible ministry to create our diverse and wonderful team. We will travel to Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina June 25 through July 2, 2022.
