During Spring Break, our 3rd–5th graders participate in a mission experience, Fun In Serving Him. We have pulled weeds, done light cleaning, washed windows, and had a party for the residents of Oakridge Village, a Senior Adult Housing Unit in Tallahassee.
Go Week is a “mission trip to campus.” It is a time of serving campus through a variety of ways and connecting with literally hundreds of new students. It is a time of coming together with a dozen other campus ministries to make much of the name of Christ all across campus. Our goals are 1) getting our students relationally connected to the incoming freshman class, 2) serving the faculty, staff, and administration of FSU and build bridges with the university, and 3) joining with the body of Christ at large to engage in a Kingdom-minded, Kingdom-building mission.
The culmination of our year is the Youth Choir Mission Trip, taken during the first week of summer. We travel together on a charter bus and sing about God’s love to those who are hurting and need love. We serve others in the name of Jesus and spend time growing in our faith as we study God’s Word in our quiet times and devotionals. After spending a week of serving, the choir presents a Home Concert the Sunday night of the trip.
Each summer, a team from FBCTLH participates in a national Builders for Christ project. Builders for Christ is a group of men, women, and children serving Jesus Christ in the mission field of church construction. We help churches build their buildings by providing and coordinating volunteer labor. Our building teams consist of volunteers from all walks of life, including contractors, public servants, computer professionals, students, retired people, nurses, truck drivers, and more. There is a job for everyone!
