MAP PROJECTS THROUGH THE AGES

The MAP HISTORY PAGE

MAP 2016, New Jersey III

Last Summer we travelled to New Jersey and helped Pastor Paulo and his church with their VBS program.

Our students did an amazing job of leading the classes and getting to know the students at the church.

One of our best!

YG Summer Missions Trip

 

This last summer we traveled too the woods of Northern Michigan to learn about Missions, dig into scripture, serve the local church, and have fun doing it all!

 

We stayed at the Hawes Cabin (THANK YOU) and were ministered to by Levi and Robyn Lenz.

 

A wonderful time!

 

MAP 14, Waupaca Wisconsin

YG Summer Missions Trip

 

Last Summer we took a journey to Northern Wisconsin to Faith Community Church and put on a VBS for their local church!  We had a faboulous time getting to know each other better and serving others.  We also helped their church with their participation in the Global Leadership Summit.

 

Like in 2011, our VBS was Super Hero Themed!  Lots of fun!

 

The joy of serving other people is unmatched by any entertainment or worldly pursuit.  Thank the Lord for our next generation!

Shelby Michigan

Youth Group Summer Missions Trip

In 2013 we went to a camp north of Muskegon, Michigan, named Ao-Wa-Kyia.  There we did some work projects and also planned and performed a childrens Program for the family campers who were on camp that week!  We did Bible Study, puppets, live worship music, animal lessons, and more!  This was a great week of ministry and bonding that will not easily be forgotten.

Camp Patmos

Kelleys Island, Ohio

 

In 2012 we gathered a great group of students and took the ferry to Kelley's Island on Lake Erie to Camp Patmos.  There we ran the morning and evening children's program for a week of family camp.  We did skits, live worship music, lessons, games and discussion groups for the 4 year old through 6th Graders.  Lessons such as trusting God and the worth of ministry were learned! 

 

Map 2011

Sussex, New Jersey

 

This was our second trip to Sussex, where a friend of Pastor Rick's is a pastor of a church.  We went out to NJ and put together a "super" VBS program for the children in their church and community.  Our VBS program was themed on Super Heroes, and we learned about God's word from people like Duct Tape Man, Captain Headstrong, Flora, The Blond Bolt, Dr. Enigma and more! Good memories, great ministry!  The kids were awesome!

Missions Boot Camp

Hawes Cabin, Up North

 

Trying to recreate a little of that Jungle Jump off magic (see MAP 2005 below) we made an attempt of an educational MAP trip, learning about missions in kind of a relaxed setting.  The Hawes family generously let us use their new cabin up north!  There was hot days, sun poisoning, shelter building, cyotes, and a buch of other unforgettable moments.

Gull Lake Ministries

Hickory Corners, Michigan

 

In 2009 we stayed close to home and worked with known partners Gull Lake Ministries.  We did various projects throughout camp; gutted buildings, installed fences, landscaping, and more!  We also were able to enjoy the camp some of the time!  

 

 

 

Map 2008

Apalachian Bible College

West Virginia

 

A wild and crazy trip to the Mountains.  At ABC we we painted their sports bleechers, and painted their chalets (cabins).  We did a ton of landscaping work througout their grouds too!  We also went white water rafting and enjoyed hikes down trails named Endless Wall.

Map 2007

Sussex, New Jersey

 

in 2007 we went to New Jersey to Pastor Paulo's church and ran a week long Soccer VBS.  This program was planned and put on by our high schoolers.  Great soccer lessons, crafts, missionary stories and more.  We also went to a local Bible camp and were able to woodchip much of their facility and perform vertical gardening.  You might want to ask someone what that means!

 

 
 

Map 2006

Honey Rock Camp

Wisconsin

 

Our second MAP trip at SSBC, This was a fun trip to a camp in northern Wisconsin.  We did a massive amount of work in the days we were there, so much so that the staff at HRC took us out for pizza and go-carting they were so grateful!  We cleared a forest of brush, woodchipped the entire facility, and did a lot of other fun stuff!

Map 2005

Jungle Jump Off

Jarrs / Wicliffe Bible Translators

Illinois

 

Our first MAP trip at SSBC.  This trip was with Jarr's jungle Jump Off program.  Kind of a missions boot camp where we learned all about missions, slept in Chapas and hammocks (Ha-MoKS) and did all sorts of other stuff.  Cross cutlural mission stuff, canoing stuff, chopping wood stuff, singing song stuff, and general all around good time stuff!  Was this nearly ten years ago?  No way!
