Clearwater, MN Campaign 26773

Missions & Faith - Campaign

By placing an order through Schwans.com, a portion of the sales will come back in support of our Youth & Family Mission Trip to Mexico and YouthWorks trip to North Carolina! Take a look below to learn more about our trips! Thanks for your support and prayers!

The YouthWorks Mission trip will take our junior high and senior high youth to the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. This group of youth will be leaving on June 11th and return on June 18th.

ABOUT BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS
Small, friendly towns dot the terrain of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a section of the Appalachians stretching from Georgia to Pennsylvania. Nestled within the foothills of this scenic territory lies Taylorsville, North Carolina. Driving into town, one notices the old white wooden buildings and churches, beautiful trees and rolling hills, farms, and a very historic downtown — it’s a town with a story and a lot of character. But what is not immediately apparent is that the town faces a 21% poverty rate with an average household income of around $25,000 per year. Like many small towns, there are some residents in Taylorsville who struggle to provide for their families and maintain basic upkeep on their homes.

SERVING IN BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS
• Serve through painting, cleaning, yard work or other simple work projects.
• Plan and lead kids programming for children in the community, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading.
• Partner with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in the community.

This summer, Youth & Family will be going on a mission trip to Children’s Haven International, which is located just across the American border in Reynosa, Mexico. This group will be gone from July 22nd to 30th.

ABOUT CHILDREN’S HAVEN INTERNATIONAL
Children’s Haven International provides home and refuge to 50+ needy children from broken, abusive, or impoverished families.  Their children usually range in age from 1 to 18.  The goal of our TEAM is to bring the message of Jesus Christ to the needy children of Mexico through their children’s home in Reynosa. They rely on the help of volunteers in the areas of maintenance, or they would have to spend a lot more of their finances in this area, which would mean the number of children they could take care of would be considerably less. Most importantly is to provide the love and affection that the children in their care are so desperately are looking for.

SERVING AT CHILDREN’S HAVEN
• Serve through painting, cleaning, yard work or other simple work projects.
• Plan and lead Vacation Bible School for children at the orphanage and the community, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading.

Eric Nickolauson is going on a mission trip to the other side of the world. Eric will be at training camp starting June 15, then leaving for Israel the week of June 27th through August 5th. He will also be going to Slovakia and Poland where he will create positive Christian role modeling and interactions with people of all ages, work at youth camps and a supportive role for ministry partners that reside in the area full time.
