Youth Mission Trip 2021
Faith, Hope, Love, facts and feelings was the theme for this years youth mission trip. Facts form the foundation, faith rests on facts and feelings come last.
We had an amazing time in Ashville NC. We got to work with a women’s shelter, soup kitchens and an Animal Haven. We also had time for lots of games, a trip to the local Ashville Tourist baseball game and ended it with a day at Dollywood. The last night was dedicated to prayer for each other and recognizing our seniors. Thank you to our amazing volunteers:
Ali Brown, Joey Woller, Joe Sanders, Carter Gannaway, Ella Sanders, Carly Pritchard, Katelyn Riant, Morgan Wall and Sydney Stone.
We are so thankful to have such amazing spirit filled youth!!
