Ecuador Missions Trip Informational Meeting

November 12 at Noon

Are you interested in going on the Ecuador Missions trip but you have some reservations? Come hear more about it so you can make an educated decision and get a free lunch in the process! We will discuss trip details such as cost, the work we will do, what Ecuador will be like, and what you would need to commit to. After that, you can decide if God is calling you or not, and whatever you decide, we'll all be glad you came. Childcare is not available, but children are welcome! Contact the church office for directions to Pastor Stephen's home.
