Service Mission

In our Community and Beyond

Serve: The Hands of Discipleship

Service Mission opportunities allow us to serve outside the walls of Sugar River at the local, national and international level.  Local service opportunities are available in Verona and surrounding area.  National mission opportunities are available within the U.S., including disaster relief efforts, and high school and family mission trips.  International Missions are available beyond our national borders with our focus on Mission Guatemala.
