Church members can adopt a student and can provide what is on their specific school supply list. If you would like to sponsor a child or if you or your family needs help this upcoming school year, contact the church office or Sandy Baldwin.

Sole Food Collection

FBC Raymore are currently collecting used shoes for the Sole Food Drive in partnership with Friends Against Hunger and The Shoeman Water Projects. A collection barrel for used shoes is in the Fellowship Hall Coat Rack Area. Shoes need to be a complete pair with no holes or large tears in them. Tie shoe laces together or wrap shoes with a rubber band.

This Drive has three benefits:

1. Provides affordable footwear to those in need in underdeveloped countries

2. Part of the proceeds go to Friends Against Hunger, an organization that provides nutritious meals to families all around the world.

3. The remainder of the proceeds go to the Shoeman Water Projects to purchase well drilling rigs, water filtration systems, and other supplies that brings clean water to areas in need.

There is a Quilt and Craft Auction, Handmade Craft Sales, Free Children's Games and Prizes, Food, and Live Christian Entertainment. Churches from all over the area come out to set up booths or serve. Go to www.mbch.org for more information. Next year's Apple Festival will be in September.

We have worked alongside Raymore Parks and Rec to make flower beds in the park, we have done yard and home maintenance for the elderly men and women in our community, have had free services here at the church, a safety presentation, and have even hosted a blood drive. We are currently planning our 3rd Community Day.

Sports Camp

Sports Crusaders provides quality sports camps for children and youth. We offer skill-enhancing camps in five sporting endeavors: basketball, soccer, cheerleading, volleyball, and baseball/softball.

Although our camps are comparable in quality and content of those offered by collegiate programs, what sets us apart is our staff. These college-aged Christian coaches are dedicated to helping young people develop their athletic skills, as well as their relationship with Christ.
Coaches spend time each day in what is called a “half time” teaching the campers to apply God’s Word in their sport and in their lives. Most importantly, campers are presented with the gospel message and given the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. 

Sports Camp this year will be July 10th - 14th. Sign up under our Sports Camp Tab. The cost is $85 per child, but scholarships are available. Ages 7-12.
