The Mission

The group heads to Costa Rica on Friday, June 14, and returns about midnight on Tuesday, June 25.

This is a cross-cultural mission experience. We can expect to have a life-changing, wonderful experience. We can expect to be taken outside of our comfort zone. We can expect to encounter people and places we’ve never seen before, experience different cuisine and a different way living daily life. We can expect to be awestruck by the beautiful surroundings, friendly people and the way God can work to challenge preconceptions we have had about life and faith. The question is, are we ready for this adventure?!

The group heads here...
