2022 Mission Recovery Trip

| Adults

It's official! This summer we will continue our support for the housing ministry of our long-term partner, Mission At The Eastward (MATE).

Anyone 16 or older can participate.
Kids 13-15 years old can attend with a legal guardian or parent.

Can't go for the week? That's ok! Go for any amount of time you can.

The pandemic has greatly increased the need for help. Our commitment to MATE has been foundational for our mission outreach for many years. They need our support now more than ever.

For those in need of financial assistance, you will be able to request assistance on the application form. Join us this summer for our Mission to MATE.

The team will focus on home repairs for people in need and may include painting, roof work, porch/step repairs, and simple interior and exterior handiwork, along with community engagement and other project site support.

What:
Home repairs for people in need.  Painting, roof repair, porches, steps, ramps and simple interior and exterior. Community engagement and support.

When:
July 31 through August 5
(We understand everyone's schedules vary. If you can only go for a few days - that's ok! The Mission team will work with you on the particulars.)

Who:
Members, family, and friends of BPC.

Where:
Central Maine, in and around Farmington

How:
If interested, or for more information - email mission@bedfordpresbyterian.org or reach out to anyone on the coordinating team – Larry Cowen, George Reese, Matt Bader, Beth Evarts, or Mark Myers.

Why:
The pandemic has greatly increased the need for help, but also has greatly reduced the volunteers required to meet the need.  BPC’s commitment to MATE has been foundational for our mission outreach for many years.  They need our support now more than ever.

Cost

The weekly cost of the trip is $350 per person and will cover food (breakfast, lunch, dinner), lodging and travel to and from the worksites. Sponsorships and payment plans are available. Because meetings, trips and financial assistance are supported by mission trip funds, we ask all participants to assist with fundraising efforts, such as a bake sale, concert, carwashes or more.  It is our sincere hope that no one misses this opportunity to serve.  For those in need of financial assistance, you will be able to request assistance on the application form.
