Eighth Grade Missions Trip

The eighth grade class of Fort Myers Christian School journeyed to El Salvador for their annual missions trip. This year’s trip was the 27th in school history. Once again, the team worked with King’s Castle Ministries in Sal Salvador. The team highlight videos can be found on our FMCS TV channel on YouTube: King’s Castle version and the FMCS version.

The team will be sharing skits, dances and good news about their trip on Thursday night, April 27th at the Children’s Center Chapel at 7:00 pm. The event is open to everyone.

Pictures of our trip can also be found on our Facebook page: Fort Myers Christian Parent Page.
