The Edge

Dear Parents,

My name is Josh Dollendorf, and I am one of the Generations Pastors at Life Stream church overseeing 2nd-8th grade. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your child’s spiritual development each week. If we have not yet met, I really look forward to meeting you soon! I’m sure you have received mailings from me in the past, but this one is for an amazing ministry opportunity coming up in the near future!

This June, our Shift Middle School group has the privilege of going on a mission trip right in our own backyard. We will be partnering with The Edge Urban Fellowship in their Urban Experience program. The Edge is a multi-ethnic, hip-hop church located in inner city Grand Rapids. They are committed to reaching urban youth and adults with the hope and healing that Christ provides. Students will be engaging with community members, hearing stories and testimonies, serving, and much more. I am very excited to see what God has in store for our students!

The cost of this trip will be $250. This price includes transportation, lodging, and food. Any additional snacks, etc. will be the responsibility of the student. There will be a parents meeting Sunday, February 26th at 7:50PM in the Building 25 room (inside Door B @ Life Stream).

Your child’s deposit of $50 and registration will be due on March 19th. This will ensure a spot on this trip. The remaining balance is due May 15th. We will also have fundraising opportunities, a special Sunday morning offering and candy bars available to sell to help you with the total cost of the trip.

It’s always so awesome to see the kids grow through service such as this! Should you have any questions about this trip, please let me know. Feel free to reach me by phone at (616) 215-4880, or email at
