This summer, Velocity Student Ministries is offering three different trips for students entering middle school all the way up to graduating from high school. 

The first is an opportunity for students to serve right here in the Twin Cities on a missions trip. This trip to the Twin Cities will expose students to diverse approaches to ministry and introduce students to churches and local leaders who are transforming their communities with the gospel in fresh ways. It will allow students to learn about their role in the Kingdom and be the hands and feet of Jesus in our own backyard.

Additionally, we are offering two trips for our High School and Middle School students to Rock Ridge in Ely, MN. They will get to enjoy the great outdoors and to take adventure trips into the Boundary Waters. These trips will combine fun and exciting outdoor activities and a camp-like cabin experience for students to grow in community and in their faith. Both groups will get to experience rock climbing, canoeing, hiking, and river tubing. Our Senior High Students will also experience a two-night canoe trip out in  the Boundary Waters.

We know that you love supporting our students as they go on these trips and normally you’re able to show this support at our fundraising event, Terrace on Chicago. This yearly event raises money for students to be able to go on these summer trips. I’m sure you understand that simply is not possible this year.

So instead of contributing at Terrace on Chicago, if you’d like to support our students at First Free Church, we’re asking you to give online (see the link at the top of this page; note the donatation category will say "Terrace On Chicago").

Whatever amount of money you  contribute will be greatly appreciated! If you do feel led to donate towards students here at First Free, please know that in the early part of the summer, we plan to send you a prayer card for a specific student so that you can pray for him or her over the summer. 

We are so grateful for your continued partnership with Velocity Student Ministries here at First Free Church! Thank you for praying for, supporting, and loving each other during such a  challenging year!

Thank you for supporting students,

Jason Pensa
