New Orleans high school Mission Experience

We’re excited to announce a new mission opportunity for our high schoolers this Spring Break! Students in grades 9-12 are invited to sign up for a trip to New Orleans, LA March 9-13 where we’ll serve the homeless through New Orleans Mission and other folks who are doing great work to grow God’s Kingdom in The Big Easy. 


Along with serving the homeless, students will be shopping for and cooking meals together, praying for the city, and experiencing New Orleans and its unique culture. 


We will leave from the church in the early afternoon of Saturday, March 9 and travel to New Orleans. We'll be staying at the North Rampart Community Center, a ministry of St. Mark's United Methodist Church. We'll return at about 4pm on Wednesday, March 13. 


Deadline to register is Wednesday Feb. 27 at 11:59pm.


Cost will be $190.00. MONEY IS NEVER A REASON NOT TO GO! We have scholarships and payment plans available for any who ask. Email amy.parker@lakewoodumc.org to inquire.


Please direct any questions to clay.smallwood@lakewoodumc.org.


All students and adults going to Ignite must have a 2018-2019 Medical Information Form on file with the Student Ministry Office. If you have filled one out this school year already, then you're set.
