They’re on a mission!

Youth left for Baton Rouge early Sunday morning. They are working on three houses this week for families displaced by flooding. They are working hard, along with a youth group from Ft Worth. Wednesday is their day off, but they have plans to spend time at a women and children’s shelter doing chalk art, bubbles, and games with the children. Surely the presence of the Lord is with our group. Won’t you pray for them as they complete their week in Baton Rouge being the hands and feet of Jesus? You can attend their presentation on July 30 in Fellowship Hall at 9:30 a.m.

This group knows how to Connect, Grow, and Serve for the good of the city and beyond!
