Red Bird Mission Trip 2019
July 13-20
On Saturday, July 13th at 7:00 a.m. 28 people from Butler UMC and 9 folks from other UM Churches (Hurdtown, Lower Berkshire Valley, and Wayne UMCs) will gather in the upper parking lot of the church to pack vans and prepare to leave for Red Bird 2019.  We will travel that day to Abingdon, VA where we will meet up with folks from 7 other UM Churches (Blairstown, Cokesbury, Cranford, Messiah/Langhorn, Trinity/Mullica Hill, Vernon, Dingman’s Ferry, Barryville).  We stay the night at Pleasantview UMC in Abingdon and then on Sunday we will travel the rest of the way to Red Bird following worship.  The total team is about 105 people.

We invite you to see the Team off on Saturday and invite you to be in fervent prayer for the team by name during the week.  Prayers for safety and prayers for discoveries, joys and God’s will being done are what we prize most. Click here to download the 'Foundations' Devotion Book for this year's Red Bird Trip.
