We seek after Christ each and every day.
An elementary, middle, and high school chapel is held once a week for an hour. Each chapel is planned with age-appropriate content and activities. Worship is an integral part of a believer’s life. Chapel provides an opportunity to corporately glorify God. Students are able to participate in worship by singing, praying, and reading God’s Word. As our students listen and interact with chapel speakers, our desire is to see God’s Word change their hearts and minds.
It has been amazing to watch God plant a mission vision in the hearts of the FCS high school family. Our first group of 11 student missionaries went to Guatemala in 1991. Since that time we have expanded from one trip per year to three or four trips. Students have participated in ministry with school, churches, and various types of community outreach. There have been domestic trips to Kentucky, Mississippi, West Virginia, and Richmond, Va. International trips have included Guatemala, Uruguay, Peru, Kenya, Argentina, Haiti, Nicaragua, and France.
During trips, students have participated in a variety of activities, like plucking chickens, building classrooms, digging drainage ditches, doing street mimes, being interviewed on radio, teaching baseball, singing on TV, meeting a mayor, sharing with street kids, and using caving and climbing excursions to teach about trust, faith, and being a light in the world.
In 2015, students traveled to Haiti, Guatemala, and West Virginia. All of the teams are grateful for the doors of ministry that God has opened, but we are also thankful for the many who have supported these projects both in prayer and financially.
