Spring Break Trip: March 2018
Mar 11, 2018 – Mar 16, 2018
Each Spring Break, HPUMC youth takes a trip to San Antonio, TX. This year will be our seventh trip with Blueprint Ministries. We will be doing home repair in low-income areas of San Antonio. Most teams will be roofing houses to make them safer, warmer, and drier. Never been on a roof before? Don’t worry! You’ll get a great safety and method orientation the first day. Also, each work site is run by a minimum of two adults and a Blueprint team member. Blueprint runs background checks on all families we will be working with and ensures that their staff members always practice the utmost caution when working and traveling in the mission field.
Each day, we’ll wake up and eat breakfast, then pack a lunch and have a morning devotional before heading out to the worksite. Your team will work through the day, then head back to Blueprint in the afternoon. You’ll have some free time to rest, shower, or just hang out and play games. Each night, we’ll have dinner and an incredible worship atmosphere. For a quick glimpse at what this trip will look like, watch our 2017 Spring Break Mission Trip Recap!
Students who want to track service hours will earn 25 hours while on this trip. Information on logistics, packing, scheduling, etc., will be discussed at a mandatory parent meeting. If you, or anyone you know, are interested in serving as a leader on this trip, contact Peyton Tippett – .
