- As of 2018 the U.S. reach a new high of 1.09 million international students studying at universities

- Roughly 80% of world leaders study at U.S. universities.

- All funding or assistance given for this trip will go to OBU 

The original amount required to raise for the trip is $3700.

In Shawnee, a high number of children depend upon free or reduced lunches during the school year.  The Summer Lunch Program provides a healthy meal to children during the summer.  Mission Shawnee relies on volunteers to prepare and distribute lunches across 3 locations in Shawnee.  Children at each location receive a meal, listen to a Bible story, and participate in recreational activities at each location. FBC has agreed to distribute lunches (which are purchased and prepared by others) Monday – Friday, June 17-21st. We need 6 volunteers per day to deliver food, share a Bible story and enjoy fellowship together.  Each event will be 12:15 pm to 1:30 pm. For more information please contact the office or sign up in your Sunday School class.

Falls Creek, July 8-15th

The mystery is afoot this year at Fall’s Creek! Each year, the emphasis of Falls Creek youth camps follows a rotation of evangelism, character & nature of God, then spiritual disciplines.

The parent meeting will be on June 23rd at 5:00 pm in Fellowship Hall. For more information please contact Andrew Worley, Youth Minister.
