5-6 Grade Atlanta Missions Project

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
— Acts 1:8

5-6 graders, we hope you'll join Mark, Rachael, adult leaders and your friends for our Atlanta Mission Project! For years, we have partnered with HopeWorks, an amazing ministry that helps local low-income senior adults. We are so excited for the opportunity to show the love of Christ to some of our neighbors.

We will work during the day on Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday painting a home and doing yard work (Parents: students will never be asked to participate in anything that is beyond their skill level or that is dangerous). After serving all day Wednesday, we will return to COTA for STS Wednesday evening activities, then go to Stone Mountain for the laser show, and finally return to STS to spend the night. Parents will pick up Thursday morning.

Cost: $80.00/person (includes breakfast, transportation, Wed pm dinner, & Stone Mt laser show)


  • Students need to wear work clothes & shoes each day.
  • Students will need to bring a packed lunch each day.
  • If your child does not intend to stay the night at COTA, please make arrangements to pick them up when the group returns from Stone Mountain.
  • For planning purposes, we request that students participate in at least two days.
  • If your child does not plan on participating in the whole AMP, do not sign up online. Please contact one of our team to register.
  • Online registration will close at midnight, Wednesday, July 19.
