5th-6th Grade ATLANTA MISSIONS PROJECT

Join Mark, Anna, volunteers and your friends for a wonderful opportunity to live out your faith as you serve and love others in our city in the name of Jesus! We will partner with two Atlanta-based ministries (Resource Service Ministries and My Sister’s House) for day service projects and we will enjoy a time of fellowship at Stone Mountain Park on Wednesday evening.
Resource Service Ministries is a ministry that works with elderly widows. My Sister’s House provides shelter for homeless women and their children. Participants will be involved in scraping & painting a home, doing yard work with RSM and they will assist children in learning and sorting clothes for My Sister’s House. Students will need to wear work clothes each day. (*Please know that your children will never be asked to do anything that is beyond their skill level or that is dangerous.)
On Wednesday morning students need to bring a change of clothes, toiletries, sleeping bag, and pillow. After the service project on Wednesday we will return to the Church for dinner and STS Wednesday evening activities. Immediately after STS we will depart to Stone Mountain to attend the Laser show.
We will arrive back at COTA around 11:00 p.m. and stay overnight at COTA. If your child will not stay the night at COTA, please make arrangements to pick them up when we return from the Laser show.
Who can participate in the Atlanta Missions Project?
Current 5th and 6th grade students (2013-2014 school year); if there is room, we may open it up to rising 5th grade students.
Total Cost: $80.00 (Includes breakfast, transportation, Wednesday night dinner and Stone Mountain Laser Show.)
