Rochester Mission Trip

August 3rd and 4th, 2021

Rochester Mission Trip

What is the Rochester Mission Trip?
A Way to Serve Others!
 
The Rochester Mission Trip is a great opportunity for Bethel members to participate in service work right here in our community. You can choose to work at home, at Bethel, or out in the community. It is mission work without having to travel far from home.
 
Mission projects can be done by people of all ages. We ask that participants for the majority of projects be at least 6 years of age. The only exceptions are Channel One Food Bank and ReStore. These locations require participants to be at least 16 years of age.
 
Mission Project times are 9-11:30 am and 1-3:30 pm unless otherwise specified. Please note that Channel One, Samaritan Bethany, and the afternoon session for Jeremiah House have different schedules. You will need to be at your service site on time. You may travel straight there or stop at Bethel for directions to a site. If you sign up for Family Services of Rochester, you will need to come to Bethel first.
 
Prayerfully consider joining in this year’s Rochester Mission Trip!

Do I need to register?

Yes, you will need to register for our Rochester Mission Trip. Worksites in the community do have a limit on the number of volunteers they can take, so please register as soon as possible.

You must register by Tuesday, July 27th. Please note that sign-ups are on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can sign up for one session or multiple sessions.

Our community partners count on us to provide the volunteers and we make a commitment to them the week before. If for any reason you are not able to attend your session you will need to inform the church office, Melissa Lamb, or Shari Engel. (Contact information is at the bottom of this page.)
