Lynden is a small town (around 16,000 population) nestled between the Cascade Mountains, the Pacific Ocean, and large cities. The City of Lynden is a farming community focusing on berries, dairies, and potatoes. There are a couple of Christian retreat centers in the area and a number of organizations that support low-income families and homeless individuals. We would love to have you join us as we go out and serve the wonderful people in our community, building relationships with God and with each other that will last a lifetime.
First Christian Reformed Church will be the host. Guys will sleep in our classrooms in our education building in the basement. Ladies will sleep in our new addition youth group room that has A/C. Showers will be at a school 5 minutes away.
Northwest Washington is a beautiful area with a lot to offer! We are nestled right between the ocean and the mountains and we will spend the day exploring the great outdoors.
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.
