York New Salem-

    October 1st through the 9th St. Jacob’s UCC in York New Salem sent a group of 16 (15 volunteers and our mascot Fluffy) to Back Bay Mission in Biloxi, MS. The group of volunteers ranged in age from 14 to 65, and for all but the two teenagers in the group, and our pastor, Rick Stuempfle, this was our first mission trip. We spent the week working to help finish a new home build, and to assist clients at the Micah Center and Food Pantry.

            For all who went it was a very rewarding experience.  Our congregation came together and helped us to organize the trip and raise the funds for it in only 9 months. We now refer to the trip as the week “our church left the building”. We are already talking about another mission trip in the future.
