Each year we have a meeting for our youth families discussing the various mission options for our students. This year’s meeting will be on Sunday, September 9th at 5:00pm in Creekside. Please join us!
Our mission trips are a vital part to what the Lord does in growing and building our students in Him. We take missions very seriously as both a command from Christ (Matthew 28, Acts 1:8) and as being representatives of Christ to the world (2 Cor. 5:20). Because of this, we challenge our students by making the standards of participation on these trips higher than some other youth ministries in the area. Our hope is not to keep anyone from participating, but that students will rise to the challenge and accept the adventure of serving Christ with their friends on the mission field, and in doing so grow in maturity and faith as a student following Jesus.
Our CARE Trip was born out of a growing heart for missions from our students and the need to offer help and support in our own country. Over the past couple of years, we have served at the Voice of the Martyrs ministry in Oklahoma. It gives our students an opportunity to serve the persecuted church around the world a
nd develop their heart for those suffering for the cause of Christ. If the CARE Trip sounds like something you think you’d like to be a part of, please prayerfully consider joining us.
