Our Missions Program builds upon itself. As students grow in their faith, shape their identity and take part in new experiences, life-changing moments occur. These Christ-centered moments are designed to create deep experiences of discipleship. They happen on ordinary days in the classroom, they happen as they prepare for each missions experience and they happen in moments like this one, when they serve. 

 

John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."

6th Grade students collect supplies for women & children at Laura’s Home, and learn about their needs from a representative that comes. They prepare a themed service for the children including a lesson, scripture verse, puppets, magic tricks and games. They take the supplies to the home and plan an afternoon of activities. Information will be sent home with the students in regards to dates and times.

"In middle school, I felt like I had a safe environment where I had the opportunities, the resources and the safety to discover who I was. I was able to take risks and test limits of my faith. I tapped into the plan that God had for me." - Middle School Student Quote (Summer Davidson, 2017 )
