The mission of the church is to take the Gospel to all the world. One way that we work towards accomplishing that mission is by taking short-term foreign missions trips.
Below are the trips that First Bible is planning:

Summit Student Ministry is once again engaging in Flower City Work Camp, an inner-city outreach that combine worksites, sports camps, and sidewalk clubs, in one massive push to impact our city. While worksites are busy repairing homes in need of some TLC, sports camps and sidewalk clubs are ministering to the neighborhood children with the goal of them seeing Christ in the lives of our students. We could still use help with repairs, making lunches and guiding students.
