Go Serve in the United States

God has also called us to go share his love with others – including right here at home in the United States. First Woodway sends people to serve all through the year – including week long summer mission trips for the entire family to quick fall trips to serve at the Texas/Mexico border. Come join others at First Woodway and share the good news with those here in the US.

Shoshoni, WY
This will be the second year of this new North American Mission Board church plant partnership with Wind River Church in Shoshoni. The team will be leading a VBS and providing community outreach events to connect this new church in their community. It is a great trip, but it is also non-stop work all day and into the evening event. You can travel to Shoshoni on your own or take a van with limited space. The cost includes your food and lodging at the Machaseh House or Hampton Inn, Riverton, WY. Cost: $250 per person or $750 for a family of four.

July 5-10

Red River, NM
We are returning to Red River after a one-year absence. We will partner with the City of Red River to do some tree removal/trail clearing, various projects throughout the city, and leading a VBS for the community. We will also be organizing some outreach events in the evenings in town. This is a great family friendly trip. You can travel to Red River on your own or take a van with limited space. We will be staying at the Red River Lodge. Costs: $400 per person and $1000 per family of four.

July 18-22
Portales, NM
We will be returning to the New Mexico Baptist’s Children’s Home after not having a chance to go the last two years. The children’s home is a residential care facility that is supported by the New Mexico Baptist Convention. We will have daily time to interact with the children and house parents through meals, chores, and work around the cottages as they care for their 4H animals. We will also be helping with some construction needs and summer jobs around the Home. The housing will be in a cottage on campus. We will leave on Monday morning in a church van and return home Friday morning. This would be a great trip for a family to go and serve these children. Cost: $75 per person, or $300 for a family of four or more.
