Preteen Summer Mission Project for Rising 4th-7th Grade
June 25-29, 2018; 8:30am – 4:30pm
Director: Kim Snyder
Cost: $150, includes mission project supplies, team building day at Camp Highroad, transportation, SMP t-shirt, a daily snack and other supplies; participants bring their own lunch
The 2018 application will open in the early winter.
If your preteen is ready to learn about living the mission of Christ, and wants to strengthen their sense of community and belonging at VPC, we hope they’ll apply to be a part of this awesome opportunity!
This introductory SMP is where Christ, service, community and fun collide. During the week we will:
- Serve at four local missions’ organizations that VPC supports; examples include, organizing donations for CHO and Homestretch, assembling meals for Generosity Feeds, and visiting with homeless patrons at The Lamb Center
- Spend Tuesday participating in team building activities at Camp Highroad
- Connect with our Lord during daily small group bible study
- Strengthen community through plenty of fun and games at VPC

What do you offer preteens who are not participating with the SMP?
Connect Sunday School is a great place for preteens to grow in their relationship with God and the VPC community. Sunday School runs during the school year during the 9:30 worship hour.
Club is a great place for preteens to have a ton of fun while being introduced to Christ or introducing friends to Christ. Club happens once a month on a Friday night from 7-9 pm.
Volunteering at Vacation Bible School offers another opportunity for VPC preteens to have fun and make a difference through serving. VBS is July 9-13, 2018.
Camp Ligonier has a strong relationship with VPC and we highly recommend it’s overnight Christian summer camp experience. Contact Kim Snyder if you would like to be connected to potential VPC carpools and cabin buddies.
