The FBG Youth Family’s annual Middle School Mission Blitz is just around the corner! We will be traveling to Asheville, NC, on the weekend of March 27-29 to engage in a whirlwind weekend of missions and fun. We will be staying at Blue Ridge Assembly, and we will be serving alongside several local ministries. Black Mountain Home for Children, Youth and Families has been a staple in Western North Carolina for over a century, and every year our middle schoolers participate in a wide variety of projects on their gorgeous campus. Bethesda Methodist Haw Creek Commons is a community garden organized by Bethesda Methodist, and it is used to serve the community of Haw Creek. Here our students learn the basics of gardening as well as why community gardens exist.
We are excited to announce two new sites this year: Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry (ABCCM): Veterans Restoration Quarters and Eliada. Veterans are one of the most underserved populations in our country, and ABCCM seeks to create a principle-based environment and comprehensive residential program that addresses every area of restoration in the life of homeless veterans. Our youth will have the opportunity to serve this group of people in their East Asheville shelter. Eliada serves the other end of the spectrum. Eliada’s mission is to help children succeed in a variety of ways. By partnering with families, they meet basic needs and provide positive child and youth development programming for all ages. Our youth will be working alongside Eliada to complete numerous projects. Registration for our 2020 Middle School Mission Blitz is now open. We hope your Middle School-aged youth(s) will join us.
