Each year during spring break, a contingent of teens and adults from Pearce participate in Flower City Work Camp (FCWC). FCWC is a local mission project where 60 churches from around our area send nearly 800 teens and 400 adults into the city to work on 55 houses in need of repair. FCWC’s primary mission is centered on building relationships with the homeowners and their neighbors.
Why are we telling you this now? In order for us to send teens, we need two adult volunteers for every seven teens we send. While students do much of the work, Work Camp is truly a ministry of the entire local church. Youth leaders, parents, pastors, and other adults from participating churches are vital and required to make the ministry work. And there are many different opportunities for adults to serve, including as Site Leaders or Sidewalk Club Leaders, food prep and delivery, security, first aid, Home Base supervision and clean-up, or materials transportation.
This year’s dates are Sunday, April 14-Thursday, April 18, 2019. Visit flowercityworkcamp.org and go to the Volunteer Info tab to learn more and fill out an application. You can also email Pastor Kayleigh (email@example.com) if you’d like to know more about this exciting opportunity.
