Mission Trips

Middle School YouthWorks Raleigh Team
June 10-15, 2018

RLC middle school youth enjoyed their time serving our local Raleigh community during their week long YouthWorks mission trip. They partnered with local organizations to meet ongoing needs and served at a food shelf, clothing distribution center, soup kitchen, children’s program, and elder care facility. Encouraged by their willingness to serve the Lord!

Middle School Mission Trip 2018

YouthWorks Raleigh


High School Servants Team, Kure Beach
July 22-26, 2018

RLC high school youth had a blast serving the beach communities in and around Kure Beach during their week long mission trip. They were helpful servants as they Give a Hand by the Sand working at a variety of direct service agencies in the Wilmington, Carolina Beach, and Kure Beach communities.


Our group will be departing on Tuesday, July 9, 2019 from RDU airport for sightseeing before Gathering begins on Thursday night. We will return on  Monday, July 15, 2019.

Total cost per person is $1,350. With congregational support and fundraising, participants pay about $600. Most churches do not offer that kind of support and participants foot the total bill. We are totally blessed!

Active SCRIP program participants will receive a $150 discount.
$75 discount per fundraiser in which youth participates.

Registration and $200 deposit is due September 23. Installments due November 1 and March 1. Final payment on May 1. No refunds for cancellations. Participants who drop out will still be responsible for full trip cost.
