Adult Mission Trips
LOPC Mission has a history of stepping up when disaster strikes from Hurricane Katrina to the recent fires that destroyed many homes in Lake County. The Adult Mission Trip in 2018 in conjunction with Lake County Habitat for Humanity worked on restoring homes that had been burned down in the Valley Fire which started on September 12th 2015. The group of 23 volunteers worked on three homes installing windows, completing all exterior and interior framing and painting both the interior and exterior of a third home.
The 2019 Adult Mission Trip took place May 7-11 in conjunction with the Sonoma County Habitat for Humanity and focused on fire restoration in the North Bay. The LOPC team of 20 participated in two different projects. Half of the team worked on bending rebar, creating forms, pouring concrete and preparing foundations to receive prefabricated “cottages” which will ultimately provide temporary housing for fire victims to live in for a period of up to five years. The other half of the team worked in the town of Graton on two home sites. On one site the team poured a foundation and at the second site the team created the form for a foundation. Though the work was challenging the team felt inspired by the projects and hope to return.
The Adult Mission Trip allows people of all ages and skill levels an opportunity to serve others in a tangible and impactful way. If you would like information on the Youth Mission opportunities here at LOPC, check out the Youth Ministry page here!
