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

Another middle school mission trip has come to an end. We take the experience with us for the rest of our lives. Once again, we served our brothers and sisters throughout Raleigh. We partnered with local ministries such as Raleigh Rehabilitation, Helping Hands, Able to Serve, With Love From Jesus, and more. We began each morning with some quiet time with Jesus, using a devotional book that YouthWorks provides. We were divided into teams for the week. Each team went to specific service sites and took turns with prepping meals and post-meal and building clean up. Showers happened at mid-day when we were done at our service sites. There was plenty of time to have fun, as we spent very little time sleeping. There was a scavenger hunt in downtown Raleigh, an amazing worship opportunity at a Raleigh church, a cook out at one of our service sites, and fun and games in a local park. What one parent said, “…overflowing with stories of new friends, experiences helping others, and a renewed closeness to the Lord. She had a great time.”


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 of 43 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.

Adult Leaders are Elizabeth Drengler, Jenny Piontek, Mike Heffner, Cyndy Vagle, Erika Hulse, Steve Cottle, Diane Hooper, and Lea Webb.

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!

$75 discount per fundraiser in which youth participates.

Registration is closed. Installments due November 1 ($150) and March 1. Final payment on May 1. No refunds for cancellations. Participants who drop out will still be responsible for full trip cost.
