Mission Trips

Reaching out to the local and world-wide communities is an important part of Hopewell's identity, and it's no different in our Student Ministry. Every year, our students participate in local and out of state outreach events.

Middle School Short Term Mission Trip

Our annual middle school Short Term Mission Trip is a great opportunity to serve. Students and adults travel throughout the local Chester County community over 3 mission days, serving a different mission each day.

Philadelphia Project

The Philadelphia Project is a week-long mission trip for both middle school and high school students. During the days, students either serve in home repair, help out at Kids Camp, or work with social service organizations. Every night of the week, students experience Club, a time of fun games and worship, followed by small groups for reflection on the day's work and the lesson from the evening.

Long Term Mission Trip

This is a summer highlight for our high school students. Last year we took a journey to Crisfield, Maryland to offer poverty and Hurricane Sandy relief. This year we will be traveling to Maine. 

Retreats

High School Retreat

We all need to find time to get away. Our high school retreat is intended for laughter, reflection, and going deeper with God. Throughout our time away, we have fun but also meet for some spiritually moving and encouraging worship and teaching.

Middle School Beach Retreat

Henlopen. The name alone brings back memories that leave a smile on the face of many as this annual summer retreat has occurred for more than three decades. Students spend their days worshiping God through games, song, teaching, and catching sun on the beach.
