Details: For this trip we will pack up our church vans and head on down to Roanoke, VA. We will camp out at a local high school with around 400 teens and adults from all over the surrounding region. Like most retreats there will be a worship and Bible learning time each evening. We will divide into teams and serve those in need through house improvement projects on Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning. Projects will include painting, landscaping, porch repairs, wheelchair ramps etc… We will return by dinner time on Monday evening. At the following link there are more details and a promotional video about what the weekend will be like – Group Work Camp. In May and June we will get the team together for several training classes during our 11 am Sunday class hour. We will cover everything from packing details, any additional paperwork, to team building at that time.
