Members of our church community have a passion for mission trips, both in the U.S. and abroad. We participate in several different kinds of mission trips, based upon the background, interests, and schedules of our members.
Mission teams from Westlake UMC go to areas that have experienced natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods, to repair and restore homes and churches. In 2011, we may be traveling to Haiti and New Orleans. Please check with Mission Committee Chairperson Tom Rioux for more information.
If you are interested in learning more about the next mission trip to Haiti, send an email to Tom Rioux, our Haiti Mission Team Coordinator.

We also partner with other area churches in undertaking mission trips, to increase our effectiveness and deepen our friendships with other area Christians. We host several youth mission trips a year, which offer great ways for youth to broaden their experience and engage in constructive change and community service, while having fun with their friends.
