Retreats
Once a year, students and Student IMPACT leaders head to Laurelville Camp and Conference Center for a weekend of building relationships, growing closer to Jesus, and having fun! Generally, the Laurelville Retreat happens in late fall and is scheduled for Friday-Sunday. We have a retreat for Middle School and High School. Activities have an emphasis on fun, recreation, Bible lessons and traditional camp activities–hiking, swimming, crafts, mini golf, and Ga Ga ball. Learn more about Laurelville Retreat Center here. As details become available for our trip, we will post them here.

Mission Trips & Outreach
Mission trips and outreach projects are great ways to grow in your faith while serving to further God's kingdom. Stretching and reaching beyond your comfort zone to help the needy and hurting in our community and our world can be a life-changing and everlasting experience.

Our local outreach involvement is with Presents for Patients through the Giving Tree at MPC in December, and throughout the year, we partner with North Hills Community Outreach Food Bank, Compassion Day, World Vision, and The Pittsburgh Project. Extending beyond our community, we also collect shoes for Soles for Jesus and raise funds for the children of Sierra Leone through our annual Fast for Leone in the spring. 

Our high school students have the opportunity to participate in a domestic mission trip every summer and an international mission trip every other summer, while our middle school students have the opportunity to participate in a local service week held in the summer. Students spend the week sleeping at the Clayton Center and going out into the community to serve each day.

As details become available for our summer experiences, we will post them here.

Middle School Mission Trip Experience: Serve City
July 26-30

Serve City is back! Middle school students are invited to join us for a local mission trip experience this July. We will be partnering with many local ministries to show kids how we can make a difference serving those around us. Each day, students will meet at the Clayton Center before heading to a local organization to serve. Pickup at the Clayton Center will be at 4:00 PM each day. Families are asked to send a boxed lunch with their kids. We will provide snacks and water. This is going to be an amazing week that will balance fun and service!

Register by July 10

We are also in need of adult volunteers! Are you comfortable driving a 12-passenger van and volunteering with us? Sign up today!
