Blitz Weekends

During the fall and spring seasons, The Philadelphia Project hosts weekend “Blitz” mission opportunities.  We challenge youth to serve wholeheartedly in our community and to think critically about how God’s Word speaks to social and spiritual issues. Our prayer is that God uses these experiences to make an eternal impact on youth and those they serve as well as a visible impact offering hope and restoration to our community. Blitzes have the opportunity to serve in our home repair and mercy ministry programs.

What is the structure of the trip?

Arrive with your group Friday evening and join us for nightly worship and Bible teaching. Serve at your ministry site on Saturday and rejoin us at our partner church for dinner and evening programming. Worship with us again at our partner church’s service Sunday morning after a group reflection of the weekend.

How Much Does it Cost?

Register by December 31, 2019 and the cost per participant is $75. Registrations received after Jan 1, 2020, the cost will be $85 per participant. A $25 per participant non-refundable deposit is due with your registration in order to hold your spot. The final $50 (or $60) per participant is due when your group arrives.  Make check out to The Philadelphia Project, 8230 Ridge Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19128.

Where will we eat, sleep, and shower?

Groups will stay at one of our partner churches. Everyone will sleep on a mattress and will need to bring bedding (pillow, sheets, sleeping bag, and/or blanket). 

Meals and evening worship will be at our partner church, Roxborough Church. Meals are provided from Saturday Breakfast to Sunday Breakfast. 

Groups will shower at a number of possible partner sites including churches and the YMCA.
