Missions Trip to the City
JULY 29 – AUGUST 2
Some of you may be
aware of an incredible opportunity coming up next month to serve in
our city. We have been invited to help with a ministry in Denver
called Christ’s Body Ministries. We have had the opportunity to go
down on several Saturdays over the past couple of years and serve the
homeless, poor and hurting in Denver. It has been an incredible
experience for our students to help pack and serve food and assist
and minister to those less fortunate right here in our own back yard.
This trip is designed just for students and will allow us to be the hands and feet of
Jesus at Christ’s Body Ministries. This is a “don’t miss”
opportunity…An experience you won’t forget.
