Middle School Mission Trip

Atlanta, GA • July 21-22

Your middle school youth has an amazing opportunity to go and be on mission this summer! We will travel to Atlanta, Georgia the morning of Wednesday, July 21st. We will spend the day doing a fun, safe activities. We will overnight at a hotel in the Atlanta area and will then serve the morning of Thursday, 22nd at The Stewart Center. Our ministry will be focused on preparing care packages for local families and learning about the Stewart Center. In other words, we will not have any direct contact with the community members which they serve as per their current policy. After we conclude, we will grab lunch and head back to Augusta and look to be back at First Baptist Church on the afternoon on the 22nd.

Our goal is that every youth will rise in their faith of Jesus Christ and their expression of his love in our world. Come join us for an amazing weekly youth experiences and let’s rise together!
