Dear Westwood Middle School Ministry students & parents,

This year, we are going to be serving at RCA’s Power Connection Work Camp in Liberty, MO followed by the Power Connection Conference in Lawrence, KS.  The dates for this year’s trip are: July 24th – 29th, 2018.  The summer trip is a great opportunity for your student to grow as a follower of Jesus, to grow as a friend with other MSM students, and to make a difference for the people they serve.

What you need to know:

  • REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.  Thanks to those of you who signed up!  We’re looking forward to a great week together!
  • All the information that you could need/want is found at: synodyouth.org/power-connection/
    • We will have a parent/student meeting a week prior to the trip to let you know all the last minute details, what to pack, etc.
  • The cost per student is $330 which includes all transportation, housing, activities and food (both on site as well as in transit), as well as 2 t-shirts.
  • Payments are submitted directly to Westwood and will be collected online through the church website again this year. SEE BELOW to submit a payment.
  • *By signing up and paying a deposit, you are agreeing to follow through with paying in full (as the church has to pay in full up-front to secure your student’s spot). All payments are non-refundable.
  • Any questions, concerns, or comments? Contact kara@westwoodchurch.net

Please prayerfully consider helping your student to attend Power Connection this summer… we’re confident it will be an amazing experience for everyone!
