GO – Short Term Mission Trips

We believe that every member of Chapin United Methodist Church is a missionary. We are all called to “Go” and minister to a world in great need. This takes place in our own community, in our state, in our country, and around the world. In 2018, we have trip opportunities for everyone.  Take a moment and consider which of these trips the Lord may be challenging you to be a part of.  Then contact the trip leader or call the church office at 803-345-2801 for more information.

Where is God calling you to serve?
