Here is what we know:
*We will leave July 18 (around 8:00 am) and return July 22 (around 9:00 pm).
*The cost as of now is $425 (this could decrease, based on what YMCA Asheville works out for us).
*The cost includes transportation, gas, 11 meals at the Y, activities at the Y, Dollywood, and some activities away from the Y.
*We are staying where we always stay
*We will go to Dollywood on Friday and then come home.
*The adults attending are Rosie Kross, David Kross, Joe Sanders, Joey Woller, Morgan Wall, Ali Brown, Carley Prichard, and Katelyn Riant.


Here is what we don’t know:
*Asheville and the YMCA we stay at are slower in opening than the rest of the country. The Y is calling our usual locations where we serve and trying to see who will allow us to serve. They are calling the Veterans Home, the soup kitchens, the woman’s shelter, and other places we usually serve. So we don’t yet know what our service projects will be.
*The Y had to cut over half of their staff and they have not restaffed. We may or may not be able to have a liason that sets up and assists with our service activities (this could decrease our cost).
*The Y had to cut over half of their staff and they have not restaffed. We may or may not be able to do the low ropes course or high ropes course (this could decrease our cost).
*We may or may not get to go to our annual Asheville Tourists baseball game – they are still social distancing in their stadium and seats are limited.

We do know that we will have an awesome week, plan as much service stuff as we can, and fill the holes with activities around Asheville and with bible studies!

Space is limited (due to the Y and transportation). Please text Rosie at 256-508-4826 to sign up and get on the list.




  Looking Ahead

Strong possibility of a senior high ski trip December 27-30 (for senior high that are members of Central Methodist or Central youth). This will be based on many factors (youth budget after mission trip, based on how many can attend, etc.). Many times cheerleaders, basketball players, and others are not able to attend.


The juniors and seniors are leading the children’s retreat again this year. Please reserve Monday, February 21 for a day retreat.

Fall Festival is Wednesday, October 27.
