Our Mission Trip to Cincinnati, Ohio will be JULY 15 – 20!!!!
Cincinnati, also known as “Queen City,” is a big city with a warm, small-town Southern charm. The city is home to baseball’s first professional team, the Cincinnati Reds. Local residents are blessed with a wide range of activities and entertainment, including free concerts on Fountain Square in the center of the city, beautiful parks along the Ohio River, one of the country’s oldest zoos, the National Underground Railroad Museum, the Creation Museum (just a short drive across the border in Kentucky), and the Midwest’s largest theme park, Kings Island.
Oh, and did we mention the world-famous chili and barbecue ribs? Yum.
Cincinnati is the perfect destination for our youth to serve and have fun this summer. At Cincinnati Week of Hope, teenagers serve alongside local non-profit organization leaders and encounter incredible ministries and organizations committed to making a difference and pointing the way to Jesus.
As our youth enter into the lives of others and build relationships with the people of Cincinnati, they’ll experience God working through them at projects such as these:
- Assist a feeding ministry that serves over 8000 meals to kids across Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati daily. You will be helping prepare food for kids as well as interacting with these kids in games and arts and crafts.
- Help with day-to-day needs of a Christian camp including helping in the kitchen with meal service, cleaning, filling water coolers, painting and landscaping.
- Brighten senior's day at the elderly center! You'll be visiting, doing yard work, window washing, planting flowers, leading sing-a-longs and exercises and doing some light painting.
- Teach inner city girls dance! Mentor these girls through dance, no experience needed-you'll get lessons.
- Assist with planning and implementation of a youth program for ages 6-13, including creative arts, physical education, education, devotions and lunch.
- Help sort, inspect and pack items including clothing, shoes, linens, books, food, paper products, and medical supplies for a humanitarian relief organization.
