We are excited to announce that year’s mission trip is an inter-generational trip (ages 16 and up) to Puerto Rico. Although it has been two years since hurricane Maria devastated this American island there is still tremendous destruction and wreckage. Rev. Dale will be leading this trip leaving the week after Barrington schools get out.

June 21-June 27, 2020
(Approximate dates – we may tweak them by a day on either side.)

Currently the majority of work being done is repairing roofs. Most often, these are flat roofs and single story only, so all skill levels are able to participate. Additionally, the weather is generally gorgeous in Puerto Rico in June (low 70s) but we will still get up early and work through the early afternoon before breaking for the day. Hopefully, there will be lots of time to get to know one another better and learn about this Caribbean jewel. This is a wonderful way to serve God and our neighbors!

 

If you are interested in this trip please contact Dale (dale@bccucc.org). We will be holding an organizational meeting on Sept. 29th following worship. Space on the trip is limited to 15 participants determined on a first come first serve basis (with a handful of spots reserved initially for youth).
