  • DAY TRIPS

    June 1st, June 15th, June 20th

    July 6th, July 20th

    The destinations (and times) for these trips will be announced the week before they happen and they will depend on the weather . We'll be doing things like tubing in Townsend, go-karts in Pigeon Forge, dinner and a movie, laser tag, etc. 


    Some trips will be free, while others may cost up to $25.

  • Jr./Sr. High Assembly

    June 26th - June 30th

    Tennessee Wesleyan College

    This event is like summer camp for those who don’t care for the outdoors. You get all of the comfort of staying in air conditioned dorms and eating in a college cafeteria, but you also get a week of fun with good friends, good music, and time to grow closer to God. 


    Students are placed into groups according to their grade for “family group” time, but also have plenty of free time to meet and fellowship with other students. 


    Assembly is open to those who have completed 6th-12th grades.  The cost is $150 and is due by June 1st.  Registration information is coming soon.


    Combo pricing for all three trips (Assembly, Summer Impact, Beach) is $350, due June 1st.

    Scholarships and payment plans can be arranged.

    Email Nathan at nirwin@1stchurch.org for details. 

  • Summer Impact Mission Trip

    July 9th - 15th

    Cincinnati, OH

    This summer we are returning to Cincinnati OH to work with Summer Impact @ Hyde Park UMC. This program gives us ample opportunity to serve in various ways from home repair to working with a summer program for inner city kids. We had a blast last year and learned so much about the issues facing Cincinnati while serving the community there.


    The cost is $150 and is due on June 1st.  Registration information is coming soon. 


    Combo pricing for all three trips (Assembly, Summer Impact, Beach) is $350, due June 1st.

  • Beach Trip to Charleston

    July 28th - 31st

    This quick trip to Charleston  gives our youth one last taste of summer before school starts back. We rent a big beach house and have a couple of days to fellowship and soak up the sun before they head back to school.


    The trip costs $125 and is due by July 1st.


    Combo pricing for all three trips (Assembly, Summer Impact, Beach) is $350, due June 1st.

    Scholarships and payment plans can be arranged.
