21 Days Till SPY! (Service Project Youth)
Did you know that several of our Fieldstone Youth volunteer to work SPY! all summer?
This year marks the first year of an official FS intern program. In the past, we allowed our youth to help out in an unofficial and sometimes unorganized manner. These interns are assigned to a ministry and placed in a mentor relationship with one of our summer interns. They are asked to keep daily journals and work through the "Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens". Special meetings and activities are organized by our SPY intern responsible for our Jr intern programs. All of our FS interns are given the opportunity to experience servant leadership in not only their ministry areas, but in all facets of SPY!

42 Days Till SPY (Summer Project Youth)
This summer we will complete our 100th Project!!! (week of june 13-19th)
Hard to believe that we have come this far. We have done it all, from back yard clean up to a sixty foot bridge across a ravine so an ambulance could get through...
from exterior painting to bathroom resurrection, from drywall to roofing, from shelving to leveling the foundation. Over 100 families have been allowed us to come in and be a part of their lives.
Here is to the next 100!!!! (watch for more news on #100... there is going to be a party!)
35 Days Till SPY (Summer Project Youth)
At Fieldstone we seldom sit still when the Spirit calls.
Last year we started our puppet ministry outreach program to children in the community.
This summer we are starting a Children's outreach center (summer camp)
We have an intern to help us develop this new outreach of SPY.
The short explanation: 1. not everyone wants to swing a hammer 2. A lot of the homes we go into have young children 3. we have the manpower and the space
4. children love gardens 5. we have a new indoor playground 6. we love children.......
We are starting small and seeing where God leads us. We could use your help?!
Children's camp to start this summer

Fieldstone is SPY!... and SPY! is Fieldstone My goal: 100% involvement by the FS community.
