Children & Youth Missions

Connect, Equip, Go

Serving others is an expression of our deep love for Christ and growth in our Christian journey and we believe even
the youngest members of our church family can learn that serving others is what God calls each one of us to do.
Youth Ministry Missions:
DNOW: mission project during this Fayette County Student Ministry event
IMPACT: in June each year students work on homes through Square Foot Ministries
Beyond Our Walls: local & regional missions, 2019 was hurricane relief in Panama City, FL.

Children’s Ministry Missions:
AVPride: our Children’s Ministry teams hosts children of Fayette County’s AVPride for Enriched Reader Leader each month. The children have playtime followed by a themed lesson, craft, snack & music.
Backpack Buddies: Providence Preschool families fill a backpack every week during the school year for children who don’t have enough food at home over the weekend
Vacation Bible School: children collect food for the Real Life Center as part of their daily VBS lesson
Ongoing projects: throughout the year small projects are included in lessons so children learn concern and compassion for others

Square Foot Ministry offers a missions opportunity designed to help young people discover anew what it means to be part of the body of Christ. As participants in IMPACT June 3-5, they are able to help needy people in a unique way. Through that experience, they are also guided to find some of the answers they have begun to seek.
