Agency Support Teams

If you got a letter welcoming you to Flower City Work Camp 2019 and telling you that you have been assigned to an Agency Support Team (Teams A1-A15), you are probably curious what that actually means.FCWC has opened a new area of Camp this year called Agency Support.

These teams will deploy across the city to different sites operated by Heritage Christian Services to assist them with service projects, cleaning, organizing, yard work (weather permitting) and other beneficial activities.  Heritage is incredibly excited to receive our teams and has a lot of work for them to do.Students serving on an Agency Team don’t have prior training.  They will meet their teams when the arrive at Camp on Sunday, April 14th.  They will leave their respective Home Base around 9am and in most cases will serve at a number of different sites over the three days of service at Camp.  In every other way, these teams will operate much like Worksite Teams with delivered lunch, mid-day devotions, opportunities for prayer walks and will return to Home Base between 4:30-5:00pm each day.

For more information, wait to be contact by your Adult Leader or contact the Agency Support Lead at ryan@flowercityworkcamp.org or 585.662.9032.

FCWC19 – Save the Date

This next year FCWC will be kicking off on a Sunday, the week before Easter.  Check-in will be on Sunday, April 14th and pick-up will be on Thursday, April 18th.  Church Rep meetings will begin soon and dates will be published here.

FCWC18 – WITNESS

This year our theme is WITNESS, inspired by Acts 1:8 –

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

As the week unfolds, please be praying for the nearly 800 students who have gathered this week to serve, the 850+ adult volunteers who are supporting them and teaching as they go.  Pray also for the amazing families whose homes we will be working on, the teens we’ll interact with at the sport camp locations and the countless children coming out to sidewalk clubs across the city.  The city will see Jesus, because we will be His witnesses!
