FC: First Baptist Church College Ministry
1: We are a group of college students who have a desire to change our community and our world for Christ. Together, we are involved in numerous activities that allow us to do this.
2: This past May we went on a mission trip to Lakeshore, Mississippi. It was a twelve hour drive, but every hour in the car was well worth it. We worked with a sister church to help continue to aid in the disaster relief from hurricane Katrina.
3: We try to do various community services project in and around our community. We wrote Christmas cards to people and we have worked at the local homeless shelter.
4: When our friend Brandon died in a car accident, we printed and sold his journal from his mission trip to India. We took the money we raised and sent it to help support missions in India. In two days we sold 500 journals and made over $1,300.
5: We traveled to Raleigh, North Carolina to participate in a D-Now weekend. We each took a group of 5-10 youth and led them in devotions and bible studies each day.
6: We've even dressed up as foreign people to help a woman in our church raise money to move to China as a missionary.
7: Our favorite thing that we take part in is our church's "Beach Camp". It is a week long camp at the beach for our youth group. We lead small groups in bible study as college leaders.
8: At Beach Camp, we always have a talent show to entertain the kids. We always take part in putting on a funny show. Also, the girl leaders usually volunteer to help the kitchen staff serve dinner. They work hard cooking all day so it is the least we can do.
9: Even though some of us are far away, we still try to keep in touch. One of our friends is in the marines so we took pictures to send him for Christmas.
10: Some of us lead discipleship groups. Our youth group is split into groups by grade and sex, and we lead a bible study with them every Sunday night.
11: We love spending time together, we love working together, but most importantly, we love each other!
