We have all gone through a lot the past few months, as our world has been turned upside down with the rise of COVID-19. This took us all by surprise. Some of us have experienced grief and loss while others have wrestled with unsettled feelings of hopelessness, fear, and bewilderment. I think it is fair to say that we have all been stretched outside of our comfort-zones.
This is not just the case for you and me, but the same also applies to our neighbors.
You are invited to join us as we break out of our comfort-zones and follow Jesus into the streets of Buffalo, NY on Aug 9th - Aug 14th.
WHAT IS BREAKOUT?
BreakOut is a week-long mission trip, August 9th - 14th, where various ministries and churches will partner together to love and serve people in the Black Rock community in Buffalo, NY. Through BreakOut, you will be EQUIPPED through biblical teaching and worship, SENT out into the community: (1) Street Ministry (2) Construction Projects at River Rock or (3) Community Service projects and CELEBRATE all that God is knitting together.
*We do not want the cost to prevent anyone from joining us. Scholarships are available. Please e-mail Sally.NorthGateBuffalo@gmail.com for more information.
Suggested donation if you need housing for the full week:
Register by July 31 - Early Bird cost ($80.00)

Our desire is for all who attend feel safe. As a result, we are asking that volunteers maintain social distancing of 6 feet between people and/or wear a mask if maintaining less than 6 feet social distancing. Please help us create a space where all feel welcomed.
