5th Grade Missions 2019


June 23 – June 28
Jackson, TN

$225—5th Grade Participant
$125—Adult Participant
Cost of the trip will cover meals from Sunday lunch through Friday lunch, lodging, transportation, VBS supplies, and any extra activities.

Students who have completed 5th Grade by summer 2019 and their parents or other adult family members.
Note: Parents do not have to attend in order for the student to participate but are ENCOURAGED and welcome to be a part of the team.

The 5th Grade Missions Team will partner with a church in the Jackson, TN community to host a Backyard Kids Club (BKC). Backyard Kids Clubs are simply Vacation Bible School conducted at a partner church, community park or someone’s backyard.
•    Each 5th grader will be assigned to a team that will teach during the BKC and lead a rotation (i.e. music, recreation, crafts, etc.).  Adult participants will serve on the same team as their 5th grader.
•    The team will be responsible for leading Bible Study, Music, Crafts, and Recreation.
•    During the day, training and preparation for each night’s activities will happen with the team along with a few opportunities for community mission projects.
Students who participate in the mission team will also have the opportunity to help lead in the VBS at Brentwood Baptist June 10-14.

The team will still be staying overnight Sunday-Thursday at a local church or lodging facility in Jackson, TN. Team members will be responsible for providing air mattresses and sleeping necessities if needed.

We will rent vans for transportation that will be driven by Children’s Ministry staff or parents that are a part of the missions team.

May 31: Commitments need to be made with a $50/person deposit and complete online registration (one application per participant—child or adult).

Time Commitment:  EACH child and adult who commits to be a part of the mission team is EXPECTED to participate in the full week from Saturday through Friday.

Adult Team Member Expectations:

Will participate with the team as same as the 5th grade students—all day, every day.
