• High school & Adults: Dominican Republic

    June 27 - July 4

    Riverwood has an ongoing partnership with Del Rey Ministries in Hato Mayor, Dominican . We will be staying at the facilities of Meeting God in Missions (MGM). We anticipate that each day our team will travel to a village in the sugar cane fields of central Dominican Republic, where we will host a clinic and a Vacation Bible School activity for children from the village, or other similar activities. Each evening we will return to MGM, where we will debrief the day and prepare for the next day’s activities. In addition to this missions work, we will also attend a local church service on Sunday and spend a day experiencing the Dominican culture.

    Who can participate: adults and high school students.

  • JR High & Adult: Project Shine, Akron

    June 21 - June 26

    For the fifth summer in a row, Riverwood will be partnering with Project Shine for our junior high mission trip. Project Shine is a local missions opportunity that focuses on serving the Kenmore community through basic home repairs, exterior painting, and yard work. Throughout the week, participants spend time studying the Bible and worshipping together. In addition to serving, we will also spend a day at a water park.

    Who can participate:

    • Students who have completed grades 7-8 by June 2020 can apply as a student on the trip. Students are expected to be at Project Shine for the entire week.
    • Adults can serve during the Project Shine week for a single day, or up to the entire week as Adult Leaders. Single day adult volunteer opportunities include crew leader, driver/gopher, and food service.
    • Parents who would like to participate in the trip can do so provided they are willing to function as adult leaders on the trip.
