FaithX hosts older adult service trip at Camp Ithiel in Florida in February 2024

By Marissa Witkovsky-Eldred

Coming up in February, FaithX is hosting an older adult service trip at Camp Ithiel in Gotha, Fla., and you are invited to join us! Registration is open now for this trip and will close on Feb. 1, 2024. To register and for more information, go to www.brethren.org/faithx.

FaithX trips are short-term service experiences that challenge us to be more aware of ourselves, our communities, and our world. Through FaithX trips, participants grow in Christian discipleship, formed by the command to love God and neighbor, and inspired by Christ’s example of humbly serving others. We hope that by serving, we will deepen our faith and grow our compassion as global citizens and children of God.
