In 2014, Boone UMC launched a family mission trip to Cherokee, NC. It was a great time of working and sharing with the Cherokee community. The next Family Mission Trip to Cherokee will be in the summer of 2016. This trip offers a chance to learn, to grow, and to serve as we build relationships between our group and our brother and sisters in Cherokee.
Here is what we expect:
• Projects through Cherokee UMC: projects such as construction/repair; washing windows; landscaping/flower beds; native plants garden with kids
• Tsali Care Center Nursing: visitation, crafts, music and activities
• Cherokee Youth Center: games, crafts and activities
• Storytelling/speaker from the tribe
• Outdoor Drama, Unto These Hills
• Museum and Interactive Village
