Mission Trip 2020 is an SPYouth led intergenerational mission experience for the youth and adults of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Ocala, Florida in partnership with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) of the Florida Conference.
This Mission Trip 2020 will take a team from Ocala, Florida in the north central part of the state to the Lower Florida Keys near the southernmost part of the United States. There the team will work, under the guidance of UMCOR coordinators, to help rebuild a home left uninhabitable by Hurricane Irma in September of 2017.
This particular project takes on a special meaning for participants since Irma also impacted the Ocala, Florida area leaving damaged homes, flooding and many areas without power for nearly a month.
This site will provide information for participants and will also serve as a blog site for updates on project development and posts during the actual mission trip experience from June 21-27, 2020. Please continue to check back for updates and information as this project develops to the point of our departure in late June.
