Join Copper Hills Church on our next mission trip in October as we take a group to Northern Arizona to serve those in need on the reservation!
Copper Hills has been coordinating our experience with Brian Snyder, the director of the mission to the Navajo people. This mission will be a balance of serving at the church, the school, and in the community.
The cost of the trip is $225 a person. This will cover your food and lodging on the mission.
There is an informational meeting for the participants on Sunday, October 9th, from 1-2 PM (after the 3rd church service). If you have registered for this trip or are planning on going, please be at this meeting. Contact Brian Dean (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions regarding the meeting.
