“If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.”

Mark 8:35



“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Matthew 20:28


So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.

John 13:34-35

One Big Love is a collaborative community outreach between several youth groups in Lawrence.  Students will be sent to different job sites to do yard work, paint, or deliver cookies to first responders! Our church has had the honor of blessing our community with thousands of cookies from year to year, and we hope to continue the tradition again this year! Sign up to serve and to bring cookies today!

R.O.C. is a mission trip to our own city – Lawrence! We will be staying together in town and doing outreaches and service projects all over the city.  This is a time dedicated to the Lord, to give Him our lives and sow eternal seed.  Not only will we be interacting with all ages as we share the love of Jesus – we will be praying together, worshipping together, and having lots of FUN together as a team!


  • All 6th – 12th graders are welcome
  • Estimated cost is $250-$350. A $25 deposit is due by May 3rd to reserve your spot!


Outstretch is the youth ministry of The Mustard Seed Church. Our mission is to raise up young people to know God personally and to live out their faith through our mission to Out Give, Out Serve, and Out Love our world. We believe that this generation can truly change the world as they begin to walk as Jesus walked; giving, serving and loving those around them. We work hard to prepare youth for the many challenges to their faith that will inevitably come as they move through life. We address the numerous issues that youth today are facing through relevant teaching topics that they can apply directly to daily life.
