The group will be on the island of Eleuthera and will stay in James Cistern, a small township.
It’s different from Freeport or Nassau, according to Devon Smyth, director of student ministries for the church.
The group, consisting of 28 youth and adults, will be doing roofing work, Smyth said.
They will be working with the Bahamas Methodist Habitat, which is affiliated with the United Methodist Church.
They will be there June 3 through June 9.
“We will be worshipping a few nights there with other Methodist churches,” Smyth said.
This is not the church’s first trip to the small island in the Bahamas, Smyth said. The group was there in 2008 doing construction work.
“It was the first trip I took with the church,” Smyth said, noting that some of the students went when they were in eighth grade and have now graduated from high school and are returning.
“We have a pretty even number of youth and adults who are going,” Smyth said.
