REGIONAL MISSION TRIPS

Beverly, WV (2020 Trip Cancelled)

Due to the current risk associated with COVID-19, the close proximity of our group's lodging/meals, and our interactions with many of those in a high-risk category in West Virginia, this summer's trip is cancelled.  In place of the regular trip, we are looking into setting up some smaller trips with less people (groups of 10 or less) and shorter duration (long weekends).  If this is possible, our intent is to have details worked out on this by the end of June.


We will also be organizing local service projects to help those close to home.  Please see our Outreach/Volunteer page for current opportunities.


The West Virginia Partnership (WVP) is an unforgettable week serving in Beverly, WV.  The group is open to high schoolers, college students and adults and normally includes 70-80 volunteers.  BCC partners with local churches in the Beverly area to repair homes, build wheelchair ramps, replace roofs, and work on other projects.  Each day we hold a Sports Camp and youth program for the community.  Throughout the week, teams visit local convalescent homes to encourage residents and share God's love.  We hope to resume this amazing experience next year.


Sharing the Gospel Online

The COVID-19 epidemic has presented serious challenges and need for prayer as people are forced to engage in social distancing and a greater degree of isolation. The need for the hope of the Gospel, however, has not diminished. While our in-person contact is limited, believers still have many opportunities to witness the reason for the hope that is within them. 1 Pet. 3:15.  One way is through the internet. In that vain, Burke Missions is providing resources designed to equip and involve believers in sharing the Gospel online.
