Student Missions

Middle School

June 4-9: Dallas, Texas

All current 6th and 7th grade students are invited on the Middle School Mission Trip to Dallas, Texas. 

We will be partnering with an organization called Kaleo Missions. It is a partnership-based ministry dedicated to caring for the poor and marginalized people of the urban United States.  Find out more at http://www.kaleomissions.org

Kaleo’s partner ministries faithfully serve in Dallas through ministries such as after-school tutoring, Bible clubs, befriending individuals and families experiencing homelessness, Bible Studies for the elderly, school supply drives, and sports camps. There is also an incredible opportunity in Dallas to reach out to refugees from all over the world. Our hope is this will provide a rich experience that students will bring home with them as they prepare to serve here in Houston!  Our theme for this year’s trip is Renew: Mark 12:30.

We also have a special “post-trip” planned for the end of the week.  We’re heading to Six Flags in Arlington! It will be an amazing time together as we celebrate what God has done in and through us over the previous few days.

Dallas Cost and Funding

The total cost of the trip including transport, housing, meals in Dallas, t-shirt, fun day, and ministry supplies comes to $660.25.

One-third of the student’s cost will be covered by the church through the Sporting Clays Shoot and Silent Auction. We are asking our students to pay one-third, then raise one-third by writing letters to family and friends. We believe this encourages a student’s community to support them and invest in the work they are doing, and the work God is doing through these trips. Click HERE for the fundraising letter!
