Summer Missions and Trips


 

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 all trips are postponed/suspended until further notice.

 

 

Due to the pandemic and uncertainty with travel we are taking our best measures to make sure that our students are safe. We are getting creative by having to consider this “new normal” while thinking ahead to when we will return to gathering physically again. Unfortunately, this pandemic has affected numerous milestones and events which extends to HBPC Youth as well. We are saddened to say that our 2020 Summer Trips have been canceled. We are thankful for the students that have signed up for these trips and are hopeful for when we will be able to meet and travel together again. We are using this time to think of fun activities and mission alternatives for when we return to meeting again. Even during this uncertainty, let us do our best to remain hopeful and to place our trust in our Creator who loves us.
