5th Grade Sneak Peek
Previewing the 2022 Missions Season
WHAT IS THE ROAD?
The Road is the missions program at Faithbridge that seeks to develop students through a tiered system that sends students across many sites throughout the summer. The Road values development, partnership, and discipleship. We want to develop students by challenging them and encouraging them in the areas where God has uniquely gifted them. We partner with various ministry partners all over the globe where God is already working. And lastly, we value discipleship – we want what God does in the hearts of students to continue past their weeklong mission trip. After all, it’s not about the destination, but the Journey!
- Approaching quickly is something we call Missions Kickoff, which is on January 9 at 7pm! Here, students and their families can attend a fun, Saturday Night Live-type skit to learn what sites students can apply for and pick up their applications.
- App Day is January 23 – this is when students turn in the applications they picked up at Kickoff!
- Reveal Day is January 30 where students learn which Journey they were placed on.
- Team Trainings for 5th Grade are April 10th and May 15th – here, students will meet their team and prepare for the summer.
- Missions Sendoff, where the congregation gets an opportunity to pray over our students, is May 22.
- Then, lastly, Missions Celebration, on August 7, is an opportunity for teams to come together and celebrate all that the Lord has done over the summer season!
