2019 Youth Mission Blast

Mission Blast is a week-long event for students who have completed 6th grade through 12th grade to work on mission projects in the Metro Detroit area. Students will stay overnight at host churches and shower facilities will be made available. All meals and materials for projects are prepared ahead of time.

The theme for this year's Mission Blast is 'SHINE' and is based on Matthew 5:14-16. This year, the Youth Mission Blast will include 2 one-week sessions:
        Week 1: Sunday June 16 - Saturday June 22
        Week 2: Sunday June 23 - Saturday June 29

The cost per student for the week is $200 for those who will be staying overnight and $100 for those who will commute. Chaperones are free. Limited partial and full financial scholarship is also available on a case by case basis.

A minimum of two gender-appropriate adults must be present at all sponsored activities. If your group does not have enough adults, your group can be combined with another group to meet this requirement. No matter what the size of your group, we’d love to work with you! Please contact us if you have any questions.

"God sends the Church in the power of the Holy Spirit to join the mission of Jesus Christ in service to the world. Jesus’ mission and the church’s worship are deeply connected; indeed, worship is mission. The church’s mission springs from its worship, where we glimpse the reality and the promise of God’s eternal realm. The church’s mission flows back into worship as we bring to God the joy and suffering of the world. Through its mission in the world, the church seeks to bear witness to God’s reign through the proclamation of the gospel, acts of compassion, work for justice and peace, and the care of creation. The church’s mission is shaped and nourished by the Word and Sacraments, and represents the living out of our prayer for the world." - Book of Order W-5.0301
