Grounded in Maine, Connected to Slidell 2024

Grounded in Maine – Connected to the World. Or, at least to Slidell, Louisiana where a group of students and adults from both Kents Hill School and the Readfield United Methodist Church communities are participating in the March break Mission Trip – a service learning trip that began in 2005 and has been running almost non-stop ever since. This is the 17th year that the group has been in the Gulf Coast and, once again, they are partnering with the Epworth Project, a faith-based organization originally founded with the assistance of the United Methodist Church, to continue recovery efforts after Hurricane Katrina.
