Missions of WECC
Missions describes the "mission" of God, who is sending us into the world with His gospel and love. We take on many missions as a church to show God's love. Some are local opportunities and others reach globally.
A focus of Christ Together Fort Bend is in long-term partnerships with local schools. Water's Edge has a great partnership with Wertheimer Middle School, a nearby 6th grade campus. You can help us in our mission to minister outside the walls in several ways on campus:
- Teacher Prayer Support - we receive prayer periodically from a prayer box in the teacher workroom. Volunteers receive new requests, email a note to let them know we've prayed for them, and then attempts to keep contact throughout the year.
- Fellowship of Christian Students - our pastor leads FCS Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 7:30am before school. Volunteers can assist in this role, speak as a one-time guest, or more.
- Teacher Treats - we provide monthly snacks or treats for staff at Wertheimer MS. Volunteers can prep items, write notes, or drop off at the school.
- Student Mentoring - coming soon
For info, email Sunshine Deeke to help.
Friends of North Rosenberg
Friends of North Rosenberg is a ongoing ministry we connect to for loving our community with the gospel. "Friends Initiatives” aim to strengthen under-resourced communities through spiritual growth, education, revitalization, and basic needs. Look for many doors to serve each semester with our church or directly with FONR.
ATtack Poverty Disaster Recovery
Attack Poverty Disaster Recovery has been on the ground before Hurricane Harvey and will be here once recovery from one storm is done. As an arm of the Attack Poverty umbrella, Disaster Recovery is impacting homes of residents throughout Fort Bend County who have lost so much. They collaborate with the broad effort of strong organizations, local grant foundations, and the local church to empower home owners to return into their home as soon as possible. Volunteers can work in Prayer teams, Home Assessment, Purchasing and more.
Christ Together Fort Bend
At last count, 28 churches from five denominations are connected on some level at the CTFB table. Pastors gather most months to ask how our churches can work together to demonstrate and communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every man, woman and child in our local geography. Look for ways to connect when our CTFB pastors share opportunities for our churches.
Pray for Mission Antigua, as we collaborate with our missionaries Courtney and Arleen Street. Our primary work is in two avenues from their ministry that has opened many doors in schools on the island.
From our first family mission trip over a summer, we are excited to invest through the Streets using a program teaching godly values to compete against poor choices, aiming to lead youth out of bondage and trafficking through the Wise Choices Campaign in island schools.
The second avenue in Antigua is through training teachers and administration. Through an invitation by the National Ministry of Education in Antigua, we train to strengthen their goals for an inclusive classroom, teaching more children with special needs. The national Pilot Program is a 3-year commitment to train teachers and love them well in their challenging task. Use your skill set as a teacher for those in education on a future trip.
In the Spring of 2018, a new door opened that allows us to take steps in a foundational mission to expand the gospel in focused communities and strengthen the local churches. This exciting piece undergirds all other ministry components and enables us to know we are truly collaborating with God's work on the island for making disciples while building a strong Antiguan culture. Make a commitment to step out on faith and into Antigua with us.

Kevin & Lisa Abbott, Mongolia
