As someone who has gone to Smoke Rise Baptist Church my entire life, I feel very connected with the congregation here. This is why I jumped at the opportunity to take a weekend off from my busy college life at Georgia Tech to participate in the Smoke Rise Family Mission Trip. On this trip, families with children congregate with the common goal of serving others and building community.
To me, it is more than a mission trip comprised of families. It is a service experience that the Smoke Rise family experiences together. Throughout the weekend I was able to connect with many people in ways I hadn’t before. Helping others while taking the opportunity to grow closer to the people I share a community of faith with isn’t just what the Family Mission Trip means to me. It’s what Smoke Rise does.
