Past LSA Spring Break Trips

Each year our LSA Campus Ministry group hosts an alternative spring break trip.  We make sure that each trip is fun, faith forming, and centered on being servant leaders in the communities we visit.

 

Recent Spring Break trips have included traveling to...

- Johns Island, SC - Jacksonville, FL - Holden Village, WA - Wittenberg, GermanyChicago, Illinois

2019 - Holden Village, Washington

During the 2018-2019 school year, the Lutheran Students of Appalachian went to Seattle, WA and Holden Village. 
We explored Seattle and all of the major tourist spots, including the Space Needle, Chihuly Exhibit, Museum of Pop Culture, and Pacific Science Center. We enjoyed worship at University Lutheran, a Reconciling in Christ congregation. 
We then drove 4 hours, took an hour long ferry ride, and an hour long bus ride to the remote Holden Village. While in the beautiful Cascades, we played in 6 feet of snow, some students learned how to ski and loom, and led Holden Evening Prayer for the village. 

2018 - Chicago, Illinois

March 3 – 10, LSA went to Chicago for our Spring Break trip.  We  stayed at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago and explored the city through its museums and popular places.  We will also had several opportunities for service and learning while we served the homeless in Chicago, one time sitting down for a meal with them. 
 

2017 - Wittenberg, Germany

This year LSA traveled back to Wittenberg, Germany in celebration and study of the 500th year of Reformation.
Just to give you a little preview, here is the list of places we saw while abroad!
  Berlin via City Bus Tour – Check-point Charlie, the T.V. tower, Brandenburg Gate
  Wittenberg – Castle Church for service in German, Lutherhaus, Melanchthonhaus
 Quedlinburg – A medieval village with more than 1600 timber houses
  Weimar – Buchenwald Concentration Camp (emotionally moving!)
  Eisenach – Wartburg Castle and Bachhaus
  Halle – Oldest German Chocolate Factory and Museum


 

 

2016 - Johns Island, SC

This past year, we traveled to Johns Island, SC to work with Rural Mission, a non-profit organization that works to provide safe and quality housing for low-income folks on the islands. We painted, trimmed porches, and got to know the home owners and Rural Mission staff. We also took time to see the sights in Charleston, eat oysters, and enjoy the beach!

 

2015 - Jacksonville, FL

Our trip to Jacksonville, Florida was a great experience.  We worked with Lutheran Immigration Services as we got to see a little bit of the journey new immigrants to the United States undertake once they arrive here.

2014 - Holden Village, Washington

 

Our trip to Holden Village in the Cascade Mountains in Washington was full of adventure and a lot of snowshoeing. It was a treat to spend time at Holden Village where we felt close to God through engaging worship opportunities.

2013 - Wittenberg, Germany

 

On our trip to Germany we helped a church in Wittenberg get ready for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
