New Orleans Mission Trip: November 7-12, 2021
Over twelve years, we have been committed to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the people in New Orleans. We partner with Bridge City Baptist Church. We are one group with many skills and the willingness to share Christ's love with those we meet. We focus on continued support of Bridge City Baptist Church. We minister to their children, women, students, and adults. We can use a variety of people with construction skills, witnessing, leading crafts, and more. We are working to build an additional partnership with Grace Baptist, a new church plant.
In the past, we have made repairs to the church and parsonage, helped with home repair, volunteered at the men's thirft shop, helped at the food pantries, hosted a fall festival at the church and participated in streetcar witnessing. You will be amazed by the way God will use you!
In 2019, we had 14 people participate in the trip. We had many classes help us go by donating items, money, and time to prepare for the trip. It was a joy to see God work through us.
This year, we sent backpacks full of school supplies for the students at Bridge City Baptist Church. It is extrememly helpful for the families that are unable to provide these supplies otherwise. We also assisted Pastor Mike so that he was able to set up livestreaming for his congregation. This was a wonderful way to help him continue to teach the Word of God during quarantine. We are thankful that we can continue to provide support even if we are unable to physically go.
The cost of the trip is estimated to be $400 per person. Costs cover travel, lodging, most meals, and insurance. There is $50 of mission support provided for 15 Hermitage Hills members to help supplement the cost of the trip. A $50 per person deposit is due when you sign up. A payment schedule will be set for a $150 to be paid by the end of July, $250 to be paid by the end of August, and $400 to be paid in full by October 15.
