join the team

be a blessing to a school with a great need for adult volunteers!

Join the men and women who serve at our local elementary school partners. There are many ways to bless children and teachers, with opportunities to read in a classroom, help teachers with simple projects, be a chaperone, volunteer in the garden and much more!

The first step is to fill out a Fort Bend school district volunteer background check. Then, download the volunteer form for Oyster Creek Elementary (one of our local elementary partners). Please print that form, fill it out and place it in one of the offering boxes on Sunday. Once your application is approved, a representative from the school will be in contact with you to help get you started!

WHY WE GO

At the core of missions is Jesus' charge to His disciples to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey all that He commanded (Matthew 28:19–20). Because of this, we believe that involvement in missions is required of all Christians and that God has empowered and equipped all believers to participate in three ways: pray, send, or go. 

GOD'S MISSION

God desires people from every tribe and nation to know, glorify and worship Him (Revelation 7:9-12). It has been His plan from the beginning that His people be actively involved in reaching the nations (Genesis 12:1-4). Before the very foundation of the world (Ephesians 2:9-10), God intended for believers, both individually and as His Church, to go to every tribe and nation (Acts 1:8). 

THE PLAN

In some of His last words on earth, Jesus spoke to His followers about a very specific plan for them after His ascension to Heaven. In Acts 1:8, He told them that they would be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Based on this passage, we understand our calling in missions to be focused locally, regionally and internationally.


“No one has the right to hear the gospel twice,
while there remains someone who has not heard it once.”
