Summer Mission Projects are one way to serve within the church walls and outside in our community. Last summer, we sent 164 participants on six trips that covered 12,000 miles to serve the Lord and serve the people.

SMP’s are life changing, not just for the people we meet, but even more so for the participants. To get a glimpse of what life is like on an SMP, check out these videos on our Haiti and Mexico trips.
