Join us for a trip to the Border Church in Tijuana!

First Church has been supporting the work of Border Church for a few years. Now that COVID has subsided, the Global Missions Task Force is planning a day trip to visit the church in Friendship Park, Playas - just west of Tijuana.

We will carpool from the church parking lot P8 to the border, park in a lot and walk on foot across at Ped East (near the end of the trolley). FUMCSD's old bus, which was donated to Border Church, will pick us up and drive us to Friendship Park.

At 1 PM we will join the binational worship service, and Rev. John Fanestil will be the pastor on the U.S. side.

Following the service, Via International will serve a meal and you will have time to learn more about Border Church & Friendship Park, look at the "wall" and all the paintings on the fence and wander around before we head back on the bus and walk across the border. Chairs are set up for the service and meal, but you must be prepared to stand in the line for about an hour to get through border patrol when we cross back into the U.S. We will drive back to the church in the same carpools. It is required that you bring a U.S. passport and your COVID vaccination card.

RSVP by June 12. 

Cost: $20 for the ride including lunch
