At Faith Baptist Church we realize the need for active, hands on, involvement in the outreach of the church, by all ages. That is the purpose of the Surrender, Serve, Sow, (SSS) ministry. SSS is a group of young adults between the ages of 13 and 18 that come together at least a couple times a month to focus on Surrendering themselves to the Lord (Isaiah 6:8), Serving others in the body of Christ (Galatians 5:13), and Sowing the seed of the Word of God now more than ever (Psalm 126:5-6).
The SSS ministry is greatly involved in the missions program of the church. The SSS focuses each quarter on one of our supported missionaries and works all quarter long on being a special blessing and help to them and their families. The SSS, though mostly teenagers, keeps the church informed about the needs and progress of our missionaries by reading the latest prayer letter from the field, as well as being in contact with the missionaries in order to know their needs and prayer requests. It is through the SSS that our young men and women can thoroughly know, understand and appreciate the work and sacrifice of those that are laboring on the mission field. For more information about SSS please contact the church office (734) 433-1356, or email Pastor Summers at firstname.lastname@example.org Or Youth Pastor Jeffrey Lynn at email@example.com
Or even better, just come join us for the next SSS meeting. Wednesday nights at 7:00 P.M.

Praise God for the opportunities He has given us! Since its inception April of 2013 the S.S.S. and church volunteers have been able to open air witness and give out scriptures (John and Romans) at many Detroit Tigers games, multiple University of Michigan Football games, the Chelsea, Manchester, and Jackson Rose Parades, Chelsea sounds and sights festival and more offering the gospel to hundreds of thousands of people and getting it into the hands of many thousands, even seeing souls saved through the SOW ministry of these Bible Invasion Events. We have been blessed to be able to take multiple trips into Detroit to help our missionary pass out food, clothing, scriptures, and other necessary items to the homeless as well. The teens have raised and sent hundreds of dollars to many of our supported missionaries as surprise gifts, and had many opportunities to minister to the needs of the people of faith Baptist church. Of course we have had our fun as well with Rally the Troops, Fall fire, New Years Eve, and many other fun and fellowship activities.
At S.S.S. we meet not just to have good clean fun but to learn our roles in the army of Christ, roll up our sleeves, and minister to others, our focus has been and will always remain to be, Surrendering to Jesus Christ as Lord of our lives, Serving Christ and His church with our time, money, and skills, and Sowing the word of God into the hands and hearts of as many people as possible.
So come join us on Wednesday nights at 7:00 P.M. at Faith Baptist Church
