Join us for our 2017 Refuge at NIU Springbreak adventure! We will depart on March 11th (Saturday ) and drive to Memphis. we'll stay over night and finish driving to Chauvin Louisiana on Sunday. Monday through Friday we will do educational programs as well as volunteer work learning about the issues that have caused so much trouble for the Gulf Coast in recent years. We will focus mostly on environmental work but also interact with the people and work in the neighborhoods so adversely affected by the hurricanes. We partner with Bayou Grace Community Services, Inc. as we serve! We will stay in a gym and sleep on cots (its a pretty comfortable arrangement.) We will have access to showers daily and meals will be prepared by the group. COST is $150 and COVERS transportation, lodging and most meals (you will need to buy a few meals while we are driving to and from Louisiana) This will be a time of growing in your walk with God though serving His creation and His people who are in need. You will also grow closer to the people you are serving along side. We do a nightly Bible study and still have plenty of time of many other fun activities after our daily work. On the return trip we stay in a hotel in Memphis and take in some Memphis sites... it is awesome! If you have any questions please feel free to contact pastor Marty
