Trip Details

July 18-25, 2020, First Methodist is partnering with Aldersgate for a Family/Inter-generational Mission Trip to Fairbanks, Alaska!

Our group will help with projects around the camp where we will stay, but could also work on some home repair projects in the Fairbanks area, help at homesteads, and possibly work with a children’s ministry/VBS in Fairbanks.

Because this is a domestic trip, no passport is required. This is a great mission trip for families and those wanting to get their feet wet in serving on mission trips. All ages are welcome to participate, but anyone who has not completed 8th grade will need to attend with a parent or guardian. The cost is approximately $1,800 per person.

For questions contact: FUMC - Sara Lattimore, or Aldersgate - Ginger Barbee,

Applications are now closed.

  • Application must be submitted in full.
  • Upon approval, a $100 deposit is due.
  • Participants are asked to follow the guidelines outlined in the team covenant.  
  • Mission trips can be rewarding and life-­‐changing; however, they can also be stressful. Please consider factors in your personal life at this time that may distract and prohibit you from fully committing to the mission of the trip and adapting to unusual conditions.
  • Once accepted, team members are expected to attend all team meetings.  
  • All costs are the team member’s responsibility and due 30 days prior to departure.
  • If you are unable to participate in your trip for any reason, Sara Lattimore or Ginger Barbee must receive cancellation notice as soon as possible. You may be responsible for all trip costs.
