Missionary Moment for July

The month of July brings many mission opportunities for the youth of the church to participate in. July 9, our middle school youth went to Passport: Choices in Greensboro, NC. Each student will choose an area of service that he or she is interested in learning about. They will be trained and given the chance to practice serving the Lord in that area. High school students left for Tri-Cities Workcamp in Petersburg July 16. They will be working alongside more than 200 youth and adult leaders to make an impact in the community through home repairs for those in need. At the end of the month, our younger children in Vacation Bible School will have the opportunity to support Lamb’s Basket and Operation Christmas Child through a special offering each day. Please be in prayer for our youth as they serve the Lord as missionaries in our community this month!
