FBC local missions at the Meadowland Campus serving children who are displaced from parents, siblings, and other family members. Many of the children will never be allowed to return to their birth families. Lonely, insecure, and frightened about the future, the church is reaching out to share Jesus and His love with each child through building relationships with them. Through consistent devotion and deeds of loving kindness, relationships are established and trust is born in the hearts of the children. Meeting their physical and emotional needs allows the kids to hear the gospel message in truth and trust. Just last month four children received Jesus Christ into their lives, and hope was brought into what seemed to be hopeless situation. God has made the way clear to saturate the campus with His word and His love through the many programs in place on a weekly basis.
These include Bible studies, Youth for Christ Thursdays where scripture and The Action Bible are the focus, birthday parties, and special holiday events to emulate family activity. During the monthly “Sunday Night Live” youth service, the Word is shared and the kids enjoy lots of pizza and ice cream. There are always many other events throughout the year where the ministry has random opportunities to participate on the campus enriching relationships with both the residents and the staff. God is at work in a mighty way, reaching the most vulnerable young people in our society. We praise God for His faithful provision!
We encourage anyone who is interested in serving as a family or as an individual to become involved in these and other FBC local mission opportunities mentioned in this catalogue.
