Christus Victor is going to Denver…

on a Youthworks mission trip July 5-11, 2015

This is a high school age and older trip. Youth and adults are invited to join this intergenerational service trip. This is a relatively affordable trip offered by a great organization.

We serve and join alongside other faith communities as they deal with a rapid increase in homeless families. Serve with local food shelves, nursing homes, and children’s programs. Meet local pastors with a heart for inner city kids who brings “Sidewalk Sunday School” into different neighborhoods, giving kids a safe place to learn about the love of Christ. In the evenings, worship together while taking in a beautiful mountain view, learn about poverty and homelessness through interactive activities, hear from local residents about what it looks like to live and serve in Denver, and enjoy a community cookout.

 Why should you go on this trip?

Christus Victor has an amazing heart for service. This is clear with our hands on involvement in our community. There are things that we do at CV that can help people in Denver grow in their faith in Christ. In the same way, Denver’s creative ministry sites can inspire our own engagement in our neighborhood.

 Why should you support this mission trip?

  1. Help kids grow in faith and relationships.
  2. Help growing needs and concerns in Denver.
  3. Partner with others in ministry.
  4. Help our own church grow in intergenerational relationships.

 What do you need?

Cost will be $550 total per person. $290 for the program and $260 for the charter bus and passenger vans. There will be fundraising opportunities and financial help for those who need it.
