Local Mission: Our House
Our House is an outreach to families in Ridgecrest Apartments of Auburn Public Housing. We volunteer there in the after school outreach for students in K-12. They welcome students to come to Our House after school on Monday through Thursday for a healthy snack and help with their homework/tutoring. This is NOT an after school program or babysitting, but rather an opportunity for children from the neighborhood to get help with homework and learn to be responsible for their assignments/studies. We intend to love, encourage and mentor “Our Kids” and help them gain confidence in their abilities to excel at school.
Local Mission Trip: My Jerusalem
This event, like many others around Auburn, strives to give back to the community with a day of service. Teams from all over Auburn go out and work on beautification projects, lard work, house work, or city clean up. It is humbling to give up a Saturday and go out to do physical labor in the afternoon Southern heat. Not only do the students get to help people who may not be able to do these things themselves, but they get to talk to them and hear their stories. Building relationships is a critical part of this day of service.
Spring Break Mission Trip: City of Refuge
City of Refuge is a non-profit organization dedicated to community development efforts that lead to the stability and sustainability of the local community. The mission of City of Refuge is to bring light, hope and transformation to Atlanta. This may sound like an impossible task. But spend a day walking our streets and talking to those who call City of Refuge their home, their place of work and their place of service, and you’ll start to see that miracles can and do happen here.
Summer Mission Trip: Casas por Cristo
We will work with local church pastors to build a home for a family in need. We will share the generosity of Christ by giving the tangible, sustainable gift of a house to a deserving family. Casas por Cristo exists to open the door for local pastors and churches to share the love of Jesus Christ by serving.
Additional Spring and Summer Mission Trips: TBD
