In Church Partnership With
First CRC of Barrie
You will join First Christian Reformed Church in serving local organizations, elderly individuals, and families. Our work will be light construction, renovation, painting, and yard work. You also may be doing some homeless outreach in downtown Barrie. Our goal is always to build relationships with the people we serve, hear their stories, and see where God is at work.
Located on the shores of Lake Simcoe, Barrie is a rapidly growing town one hour north of Toronto. We are a mix of “big town” and “small town”- you get the best of both!
You will be staying at a local school or possibly our church. Bring a sleeping bag and air mattress; you will be sleeping on classroom floors. Showers will be off-site at the new local recreation centre.
Barrie is the gateway to “cottage country”! We will head north to enjoy a relaxing day at a cottage, swimming, playing games, outdoor worship, and roasting marshmallows.
Registration fees do NOT include transportation to and from the sites. Each church group must provide vehicle(s) and adult driver(s) for the entire mission experience regardless of whether you fly or drive to the site. The vehicles you bring will be used to transport small groups to the work site each day, so 12-passenger vans or mini-vans are preferred. Cars do not facilitate the transportation of an entire small group in one vehicle, so please do not bring them. If you wish to bring a bus, please check with the Host Team to see if this is acceptable before you make arrangements. If your group is unable to provide van transportation, please have a youth leader call the ThereforeGo Ministries office to discuss options and additional charges.
Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). Please DO NOT book airfare until you have received email confirmation from ThereforeGo Ministries that you have been placed at this site.
