In Church Partnership With
First CRC of Barrie
We are hoping to partner with retirement homes, homeless shelters, food banks, pregnancy centers, and organizations like Christian Horizons.
The city of Barrie has been around since the War of 1812, creating historical links to the Nine Mile Portage and the Underground Railway. Located on the beautiful Kempenfelt Bay about an hour north of Toronto, Barrie continues to be one of the fastest-growing cities in Canada. This growth brings challenges. On this trip you will be working in homeless shelters, retirement homes, and participating in environmental clean-ups. Our goal is to help you further your relationship with God by creating bonds with your small group as well as serving the growing city of Barrie. From the infamous Spirit Catcher sculpture to the beautiful hiking trails, participating in the Barrie SERVE will help you live out our church’s motto of “Growing in love for God and neighbour”.
We will worship, sleep, and eat at First CRC, which is air conditioned. Showers will be at a local rec center.
Activities may include a trip to the zoo or an afternoon spent on an inflatable water park. We expect we will spend a lot of time throughout the whole week taking advantage of the great outdoors around us.
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.
