Exact travel times may change slightly as partner churches and lodging are finalized, which usually happens ten weeks prior to the departure date.
The full itinerary for this trip is still in the planning stages, with the final location picked approximately 10 weeks out from the departure date. Locations are picked by Praying Pelican Ministries in consultation with Clarkston United Methodist Church. Our commitment with Praying Pelican Ministries is to work and stay within an hour of
Wilmington, North Carolina.
Clarkston United Methodist church holds a core value of transformational mission, serving alongside others in local communities builds relationships that change us as we improve the lives of those around us. By seeking out mission partners outside the Clarkston Community, we offer students the opportunities to expand their worldviews
with mission trips in different locations each year. This years mission trip to North Carolina will provide a unique opportunity to experience serving others in a different geographic region from our home state.

While the full cost of the trip is expected to be about $1000 per participant, the Clarkston United Methodist Church Youth Group and Missions Team will be holding several fundraisers to bridge the difference between the participant cost and trip expenses.
