Mission trips allow us to live with and learn from our brothers and sisters in other parts of the country and around the world while sharing their struggles with hunger, poverty, natural disaster. We offer a helping hand, but most importantly, an open heart to all we meet. There are opportunities for everyone to be involved with mission trips at DPC, including participating in a trip, praying for trip particpants and for those whom with they will be working, and helping to provide supplies and support for volunteers.
DPC will be traveling to Camp Evans on the Jersey Shore to once again join the Saint Bernard Project to help in the recovery efforts in this devastated region. Coming off of the success of the 2019 trip, the 2020 Intergenerational Mission Trip to the Jersey Shore will provide relief to displaced families. The goal is to provide a mission opportunity for DPC members of all ages to work together, pray together, get to know each other, and have fun together. (Anyone 14 and older is welcomed! All youth would need to attend with a parent of the same gender due to DPC’s CPP requirements.) An informational meeting will be held on Sunday March 8 at 12 pm in Room 213.
Work Trip – March 21-28 - A Work Trip to the Community Pantry in Gallup, NM, will be strictly a time to work in the Pantry and help prepare the gardens for spring. This trip provides an opportunity to see first-hand DPC's involvement and commitment to helping Native Americans in the Southwest. New and returning participants welcome.
Family Work and Cultural Trip - June 20-27 – This trip includes 2 days of travel, 2 ½ days volunteer work experience and cultural experiences the remainder of time.

This is a unique opportunity to learn more about Native Americans in the Southwest and see life on a reservation.
