Redeemer Lutheran's Scholarship Story

Redeemer Lutheran Church runs on a very tight budget as the church not only has the need to support itself but also subsidize the K-8 school that is the main mission of the church.  This means there’s little wiggle room for sending the youth group on mission trips, putting the idea of mission trips out of reach for many families. But in 2018, the Redeemer youth group was very excited to receive $500 in scholarship money towards a mission trip with ASP! Those students who previously did not think they could go on a mission trip now saw it as a real possibility.

Redeemer Youth Director, Annette said, “The scholarship funds donated by ASP gave our youth group the momentum to continue fundraising and attain our fundraising goals.” Because students were now able to reach their goal, Redeemer was able to bring two teams to Kentucky to serve for the week.

Grand Blanc United Methodist Church's Scholarship Story

Grand Blanc United Methodist Church sponsors our high school youth group to attend ASP every other year. In 2018 we were in Magoffin County, Kentucky. The only cost to the youths is a $50.00 commitment fee, the balance is covered by the church.

This was our first experience with the college student spring break ASP opportunity. For this trip we held multiple fundraisers to raise the funds required to send our college youth to ASP. The $200.00 in ASP scholarship money put our fundraising over the top and allowed us to participate this year. This year’s college spring break trip was memorable and successful. We are already planning our next trip in 2021.
