MISSION: For about 15 years, we have been taking a group of students to Northern Maine every summer. Our students spend a week ministering to the churches and people of this community by hosting Vacation Bible School (VBS).
PREPARATION: Since our VBS program encompasses all ages (pre-kindergarten through high school), the months leading up to this trip will be spent learning the ins and outs of this year’s VBS curriculum. Maine Team participants must be dedicated to learning the material and be committed to attending regular team meetings.
LOCATION: Our team will stay in Brigade Lodge, located in New Sweden. The lodge includes a bunkhouse, kitchen, and bathroom facilities. Male team members will sleep either in the main building or in tents. Female team members will stay in the bunkhouse.
