Each summer, the Senior Highs travel to Hartford, Maine where they work on projects like siding and painting a house, rebuilding a handicapped ramp, painting a church and "chucking" firewood to stock a local "firewood bank" to serve those in need through the cold, harsh Maine winter. Senior Highs also get to enjoy some New England highlights - lobster, a trip to the Popham Beach State Park and Freeport.
To finance this mission trip: Senior Highs raise money throughout the year with some fun and necessary activities. If you would like to make a donation to support the Senior High Mission Trip to Maine, please click here.
Apple Pie Sale: Senior Highs bake and sell more than 150 pies each November just in time for Thanksgiving. Proceeds are sent directly to Maine to buy project supplies for the following summer.
Maine "Shares" Senior Highs invite congregation members to become "shareholders" in their trip. Members who purchase "shares" receive a handwritten postcard update about our trip in Maine.
Allentown Art Festival Parking Our church is located just a block away from one of the region's biggest outdoor art festival - Allentown Art Festival. During the festival each June, the Senior Highs sell parking in our church lot to festival-goers to raise additional funds for the trip.
Specific details for the 2016 Maine Mission trip coming soon!
