The students will be doing some sort of work project at the farm property each morning. In the afternoons, they will help with Vacation Bible School at a local church. This trip is for any student who will be going into the 9th grade to freshman year of college for the Fall 2019. 

The initial meeting for our Youth Summer Mission Trip will be Sunday, Sept. 16th at 2:00 pm in the Welcome Center.  If you are thinking of going next summer with us, you must come to this meeting.

CLHS Partnership Grant

As your student attends high school at Concordia, we want to give you more information about our CLHS Partnership Grant and how it works. 
Our congregation pays $1450 per CLHS student in good standing at Holy Cross per year, contributing nearly $6000 in actual cash to your student’s education from Grades 9 through 12.  We consider it a joy and privilege to make this investment in the growth of your student.
All partnerships are built upon mutual expectations and commitments.  In a healthy partnership, the expectations and commitments exist for the good of both parties.  It is in this spirit that Holy Cross requires that you and your student make the following commitments:

  1. Faithful church attendance. We use the number of at least half (50%) of the regular (Saturday, Sunday or Monday) Holy Cross worship services during the September through May school year. Click here 2019-20 Grant Covenant.

  2. Attendance at one (1) “Family Faith Stepping Stone” event by your student and you. See the schedule for grade-level 2019-20 Stepping Stone events.

  3. Volunteering at Holy Cross. We want our young people involved in the worship life of our congregation. Click here for our Volunteer Contact Sheet (for service ideas and ministry leader contact info). Click for the Volunteer Service Report Form.
