Upcoming Mission Trip – Tangier Island 2018.  We are planning another mission trip to Tangier Island, VA for June 2018 and you are invited to participate! This is a great trip for “first time” mission service. (no passports, shots, plane tickets, etc.) We will be working on the island for one week performing visitation to shut-ins and elderly folks, light construction and painting, and a youth ministry as we grow spiritually as individuals and as a team. Proposed dates are 20-26 June 2018, a Wed through Tue trip. Cost per person is $350 which includes surface and over-water ship transportation, lodging, food, construction materials for the trip, and a mission shirt. The trip is limited to 28 persons and we will be serving with several other Carlisle Area churches. Sign-ups will open late Jan 2018. The purpose of this note is to “fence off” the dates if you wish to serve. See bulletin for contact information.
