June 26 - July 3, 2016

Thinking about going on Mission Tour 2016?

There's still time to sign up! 

We'll be traveling to the North Country again for our 18th year from June 26 through July 3 to do rural rehab work for those in need. 

We'd also like to extend an open invitation to the youth members of our church looking to go on Mission Tour to invite a friend!

All we ask is that they're able to put in the work on the trip, as well as put in the work through fundraising to help get us there!

Like all Mission Tour crew members, any friends going would be asked to participate in both crew and Donegal Presbyterian Church activities leading up to Mission Tour.

Sign-ups will be closed by Sunday, November 29th so we have time to finalize lodging arrangements.

If you're interested in going, have questions about inviting a friend or just want to learn more about Mission Tour, please contact David Labagh at or 717-471-6027.

Our Mission Tour is a program of rural rehabilitation and spiritual support for those in need. Working on sub-standard housing, the tasks are designed to allow all crew members to use their talents and willingness to learn new skills to physically assist those in need. As we repair and replace siding on homes and skirting around trailers, paint and tar roofs, replace plumbing and rebuild safety features on stairs and ramps, we also minister to the emotional need of inclusion and being cared for, and find that we are ministering to each other and ourselves, as well. All who participate agree that they get much more from the experience than they give. The week-long program includes daily Bible Study and discussion, personal journaling, and a strenuous mountain hike. We stay at the Crary Mills Presbyterian Church during the work week, and at various locations on the weekend. We raise funds throughout the year to pay for food and fuel, and during a worship service in October each year, we share with the congregation what we have learned .

It isn't possible for everyone to go on the trip, but every Church member can participate by supporting our fund-raisers or making a direct gift to the church, designated for the MISSION TOUR PROGRAM.
