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 SAMANTHA CORTEZ 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.
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.
We have led one family mission trip in the summer building off of the investment through the Streets. A program teaching godly values stands 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 is through training teachers and administration through the invitation of the national Ministry of Education, strengthening their goals for an inclusive classroom and teaching more children with special needs. The national Pilot Program is a 3-year commitment to train a consistent cohort of teachers and professionals.
Look for how you can use your skill set as a teacher for those in education on a future trip. Additional doors ill open for broader mission needs in the years ahead. Make a commitment to step out on faith and into Antigua with us.
