The 527 Tribe Summer Mission Trip to the Rio Grande Valley

Published June 3, 2022 by SMBC

This summer The 527 Tribe is traveling to the Rio Grande Valley as part of a three-year cycle of exposure to rural communities unlike our own.

These communities are impacted by poverty and systemic injustice. On Sundays we have grown our understanding of community, what gifts God has given us, and in what ways we are called to serve. We have also learned specifically about the culture of the Rio Grande Valley and the strengths and assets of the communities there.

With this summer trip, we plan to build on that foundation as we put together 15 beds, paint a home, and fellowship with the local church.
