We are so excited about the summer missions opportunities coming up! It is our heart to spread the gospel in our community, and across the world. We'd love for you to be involved or get more information on these great opportunities!

    2017 MISSION TRIPS

    Join us as we look back on our mission trips from 2017

    • CHINA

      This year, a group took a trip to China to interact with students there. They taught English and played basketball and built relationships.

    • GUATEMALA

      In May & June, John & Anita Brand spent time at Hope of Life in Guatemala. This amazing mission helps those of all ages from babies through the elderly in Guatemala as well as those with special needs. Anita spent a month there this year and the Brands have a special heart for this community.

    • ARIZONA

      In July, a group from the church traveled to the Navajo reservation in Arizona to minister at two churches. They participated with the children and congregations for a week in the hot Arizona sun. It was a blessing for all involved.

    • LAOS

      In October, Pastor II, his wife Pat and son Max were able to travel to Laos to visit their family for the first time in a long time, and the first time for Max. This was a wonderful trip to see their family, and love on the community in Laos.

    2017 LOCAL MISSIONS

    Not only did we send teams out across the country and the world, but we also participated in LOCAL missions, too, right here in High Point, NC.

    • SPORTS CAMP 2017

      In June of 2017, we welcomed over 150 church and community children to participate in our 2nd annual UW Sports Camp. This year's theme was 'Go the Distance' where the children learned what it meant to stay in the race and also, how to participate in a variety of sports!

    • LIVE IT OUT! DAY

      In October, the church took a day to help within our church family and those in the community who needed a little extra care. We painted, did yard work, cooked meals, organized, did general handywork, and other things that needed to be done to show the love of Christ to our neighbors!

    • TRUNK 'N' Treat

      Our biggest community outreach of the year, we spread the love of Jesus by inviting the community to our parking lot to give out candy, free food, and fun on Halloween. We also have inflatables (in conjuction with CRI Ministries), we give out Bibles (in conjuction with the Gideons) and give out free food bags to families in need, as well as pray with them if they would like. This is one of the best events of the year!

    • KAREN CHRISTMAS OUTREACH

      Our Women's Service Team worked with our Missions' Team to help our Karen Ministry as they invited people, unchurched and churched, to a Christmas Celebration here at FWC. This was a wonderful, collaborative effort, with food, festivities, presents for the children, and a Gospel presentation, too!
