Church of the Brethren FaithX trips are short-term service experiences that challenge us to be more aware of ourselves, our communities, and our world.

The trips provide opportunities for all ages to serve. Traditional junior and senior high youth trips are happening during summer, and a few new trip options are also available. During the summer, a family trip with childcare provided will allow attendees of any age to experience service together. Additionally, the summer schedule includes adult trips in the US with Brethren Disaster Ministries and in Ecuador, a We Are Able trip for persons with intellectual disabilities, options for combined junior and senior high youth groups to attend together, or the opportunity to create a custom trip.

A new older adult FaithX trip to Camp Ithiel in central Florida was held in February, with more than a dozen people participating (including Linda Simler from Freeport!). The week included a variety of service projects, worship and singing, fellowship time, and games, along with a day trip to Silver Springs State Park that included a boat ride.
