1. What should I do after I register online?
Mail in your deposit to Marysville FUMC at 207 S. Court St., Marysville OH 43040. In early spring, we will send you the forms that your church and participants need to fill out. If you have any questions about the registration process, email Josh at firstname.lastname@example.org or Amelia at email@example.com.
2. What should I expect the week to look like?
Transformation Zone is a unique mission trip because students get the opportunity to learn about so many ministries in the Central Ohio area. You will be assigned to a work crew with some people from your church and some people from other churches. You will travel to your work site together and spend the day doing ministry together. In the evening, you will get plenty of changes to hang out with your friends but you will also get the opportunity to worship and learn more about God and his desires for us. Basically, you’re in for an awesome week! Check out our typical daily schedule here.
3. Where are we staying?
Everyone sleeps at Marysville First United Methodist Church during the week. The females shower at the church and males shower off-site so that we can be sure there are enough showers for everyone (we recommend them after a hard day of ministry!). The rooms have lots of outlets and air conditioning, so feel free to bring an air mattress or camping mat.
4. What ministries do we work with?
We partner with a number of ministries through the central Ohio area, and each year we find new sites while maintaining relationships with a number of sites from the past. Some of our 2016 sites included:
Lifeline Christian Mission, puppet ministry, serving meals at Faith Mission, Green Meadows Mobile Home Park, Common Ground Free Store, Mid-Ohio Food Bank, the Bed Brigade (building beds for families in need), VBS at local churches, bike assembly and delivery, the Hope Center
