   In the wilderness of life, we are not alone.

God is with us, even in the midst of our loneliness.  

On the treacherous, paths, God’s guidance is ours.

We will walk in God’s ways of wisdom and truth.

Come to hear. Come to learn. Come to the hiding place of God.

Here we find grace. Here we find love. Here we will worship and pray.

GREAT THANKSGIVING

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give our thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

 

And so, with your people on earth, and all the company of heaven, we praise your name and join in their unending hymn.

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of

your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is the one who comes in the name

of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

 

And so in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ, we offer ourselves in

praise and thanksgiving as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ’s offering for

us, as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.

2017 High School Mission Trip to Mission, TX

June 24 to July 2, 2017   serving those in the heart of southern Texas 

 

Join Youth from all over the Dakotas United Methodist Conference as we travel to the southern tip of Texas to serve our brothers and sisters in need in the “Colonial” — a small strip of land just north of the USA — Mexican border. We will depart on Saturday, June 24, and return on Sunday, July 2.  We will spend Saturday night on the road on the way to Mission, TX.  We will work Monday through Thursday at a variety of sites, mostly doing light construction work. During this time we will stay in dorms and cabins at a local camp that is a beautiful and well-equipped facility.  Each of our work days will begin with breakfast in camp followed by working in teams at various sites.  While at the work site, we will have a sack lunch and noon devotional time. Each evening we will return to camp for clean-up, dinner, worship, and some free time. We will travel to San Antonio on Thursday evening and spend Friday there at the Six Flags Amusement Park.  We will travel a few hours Friday night and then most of Saturday to get to Topeka, Kansas. There we will have our closing worship and return home on Sunday.

Registration will be opening soon!

 

Cost of the Trip $ 750

Deposit $150 due at registration
