Instead of heading out of town to lend a helping hand, youth at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay will keep their mission trip local this year. For the first time, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church is hosting the Door County Mission Trip where they will perform community service projects throughout the city. Members of a church in Merrill, Wisconsin will also join them for the weeklong experience which will include helping out at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, cleaning up the yards of area veterans, and baking cherry pies for distribution. Prince of Peace Pastor James Gomez hopes it gives participants a different view of Door County.
Gomez hopes to be able to invite more churches to participate in the Door County Mission Trip in future years. The approximately 20 youth members will participate in service projects from July 28th to August 2nd.
