Youth Mission Trip

Youth Mission Trip

Maple Sheyenne’s youth and families have been participating every other summer in a mission trip experience through a Minnesota based non profit that’s mission is  to  connect youth groups with mission fields domestic and international.  In the past we have gone to Yankton, South Dakota and Duluth, Minnesota.  This year’s trip will take place June 23-28 and we have the 11 youth and 2 chaperones attending.  We can’t wait to share what God does through, to and with us!

Here is what we know about our trip thus far:

About Lake Traverse

One of the most unique partnerships YouthWorks is developing in Lake Traverse is with the old middle school in the middle of town, which is being converted into a community education and activity center. Your group will help facilitate children’s programming at this building, serve the residents in local assisted living facilities/nursing homes and help out with other work projects in the community. You’ll learn about Dakota culture from a community friend, explore a state park that is spiritually significant to the local tribe, and join the community for a cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2005.

Serving in Lake Traverse

  • Serve through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work or doing other simple work projects.
  • Partner with local assisted living homes.
  • Plan and lead children’s programming, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading activities.
