The 2017 high school mission trip was a combined trip with several churches from across the diocese of Georgia. We participated in the annual home missions trip and served at St. John and St. Mark’s in Albany, GA. Albany is still recovering from severe tornadoes that hit in January 2017. Many churches and organizations could not put on summer programs as resources went towards rebuilding. The students ran a Vacation Bible School for children in the area. It was a joy to see our students’ creativity, compassion, and love for the children each day. We played games, told stories, played songs, and made crafts all surrounding our theme of Creation.
