Youth Work Team

In the 53 years Mesa Verde UMC has existed, the church has sponsored 45 Youth Mission trips, known throughout the church as the Youth Work Team trips. For years, the teams went to Mexico, until it became unsafe to do so. After Hurricane Katrina, they went to Mississippi. In recent years, they have worked through the Sierra Service Project (SSP), traveling to various sites in the Western U.S. Last year they went to Susanville, CA, near the Oregon border.

This year the youth of MVUMC are excited to be going on a youth work team trip to serve through Appalachia Service Project. They will have the opportunity to help a community in need and show those they come in contact with that they are greatly loved. They have accepted the challenge of raising funds for 7 participants to attend for one week.Tentatively they will be on a work site located somewhere in Kentucky.
