Peoples Church launched their latest expansion project early this May. The Believe More Than Ever project, dreamed up in late 2013, is a three-year, 18 million dollar, plan for constructing two new buildings, moving the GLJ Chapel, and refreshing the 45 acre campus. Peoples Church, founded in 1954, held its first service at Cedar and Herdon 40 years ago. Over the next 28 years, six more buildings were added. However, a dedicated children's building has yet to be constructed, which is one of the main problems the Believe project aims to solve.

"My favorite part about the senior trip is being able to hang out with friends who will be going away for college," Avila said. "This is one of the last times to do that and I love being able to connect with all of them. The senior trip is good for seniors to go on because you can connect with your other classmates. We are like a big family. Being able to just do things with others and strengthen relationships is what senior trip is all about."
