    2) Many areas of drywall patch and repair throughout the building.

    3) Many rooms to be painted as time and manpower is available.

    4) Repair water damage to drywall in the prayer room.

    5) Replace the flooring in the prayer room with some type of tile.

    6) If the weather is acceptable, replace the water damaged decking on three door ramps for outside storage sheds.

    The project time will be 8am to 8pm and they are providing breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We're bringing tools and skills. They have reserved the entire youth building so we can camp out there Friday night.

    2018 Sioux Missions Trip

    This will be a construction project where we will be building a classroom inside an existing barn structure. Step one is raising funds (approximately $2,000) for materials. If you have unallocated missions money or your outpost wants to do a fund-raiser for this project, send money to Bridge to Life Assembly, 222N Orchard Ave, Canon City, CO 81212 (make checks to Bridge to Life Assembly and put 'FCF Missions' in the memo). Further details will be posted soon on the project.

    2018 Navajo Missions Trip

    We will be taking frozen turkeys and firewood to a church on the Navajo reservation. We will be collecting firewood for this trip over the summer, so if you have some to donate contact Chopstix (Joe@Rockfamily.net) and we'll work the details.  A portion (typically 1/2 to 1/3 cord) of firewood and a frozen turkey will then be delivered to needy families as an outreach -- putting action to Christ's command on how we should treat one another. We will also have the opportunity to pray with each family. In addition, there are various projects at the church or local residencies that we may be able to help with. Come be part of a great way to touch families for Christ.

    Where: Navajo church and community near Counselor, NM

    When: November 16-18, 2018 (always the weekend before Thanksgiving)

    Note: This counted as a District-sponsored missions trip for the Adventure Global Missions Merit. This will be conducted very similarly to previous years, so take a look at the 2017 details and recap for more info.

    2017 Navajo Missions Trip

    We will be taking frozen turkeys and firewood to a church on the Navajo reservation. A little over 11 cords of wood has already been donated by a generous family. Approximately 60% of the wood will need to be blocked and split. A portion (typically 1/2 to 1/3 cord) of firewood and a frozen turkey will then be delivered to needy families as an outreach -- putting action to Christ's command on how we should treat one another. We will also have the opportunity to pray with each family. In addition, there are a couple of projects at the church that the pastor has requested help with. We arrive Friday, work Saturday, and return Sunday. Come be part of a great way to touch families for Christ.

    Further details:

    • Meals: We will divide meals among the area teams. So one team (for example, Canon City) will be responsible for one meal for everyone. Group meals are Friday dinner; Saturday breakfast, lunch, and dinner; and Sunday breakfast. All other meals, as well as snacks, are on your own.
    • Cost: The only cost is your own transportation and how the team you are with decides to handle the meal costs. There is no other fee to participate.
