First Baptist Church of Lee’s Summit seeks to provide a variety of opportunities for members to engage directly in short-term mission trips. Each year a team travels to, Guatemala to work with local ministries to share Christ, distribute food to hungry families, lead Vacation Bible schools, and they have offered leadership training to local churches.
Other mission opportunities include a Youth Choir and Orchestra trip, a Youth mission trip, and a Family mission trip. The Youth Choir and Orchestra trips feature gospel presentations and service projects at a variety of locations usually including churches, detention centers, and other gospel hungry places. The Youth and Family trips are a great way to share Christ though service and evangelism alongside established ministries.
We have many partnerships throughout the Kansas City area; one of those partnerships is with Forest Avenue Church. Teams have assisted them through landscaping, painting, cleaning, repair work, and other work projects so that Forest Avenue can better serve its community.
