Adult Mission Trips
First Church of Lombard, UCC has a long history of sending adults on international mission trips to build homes for people who need them. Recent trips (2013, 2015 and June 2017) have been to Nosara, Costa Rica where teams built two houses on each trip. Working closely with our Costa Rican partners, First Church members build relationships as we build houses, learning about the local culture and establishing friendships that endure long after we return to Lombard.
Here are some pictures from Day 1 in Costa Rica. The group had a very productive first day of work making panels. They made 32+ panels! That's enough for a house!
