Youth Spring Break Trip 2017


  • Memphis, TN

March 11-14



 

“Through voluntary displacement, we counteract the tendency to become settled in false comfort and to forget the unsettled position that we share with all people….as a Christian community we are people who together are called out of our familiar places to unknown territories, out of our ordinary and proper places to the places where people hurt and where we can experience with them our common human brokenness and our common need for healing”
— Henri Nouwen (Compassion: A Reflection on the Christian Life)

WHY ARE WE GOING?

The youth group of Redemption Church is going to be taking a trip to Memphis, TN from March 11 - 14. This is not a missions trip or a service trip. This will be an experience trip. We are crafting an experience that we hope will help them to discover the Mission of God in their life. 

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

We will be headed to Memphis, TN for a two day exerience of the mission of God in Memphis. 

WHEN ARE WE GOING? 

March 11-14

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

First and foremost, we will be eating some of the best food in the country. Memphis BBQ... come on! 

In Memphis, the students will be going through the National Civil Rights Museum. This museum is a highly impactful experience that not only tells the history of African-Americans, but does an amazing job at communicating the role of the church and the teachings of Jesus in the lives of this movement. 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

This trip is going to cost $250 per student.
