With the summer upon us, we wanted to make families aware of several different ways they can be a blessing to others. In the past, we’ve scheduled Wednesday Workdays on campus but starting this year we will be looking for ways to bless our community. Below you will find area organizations that offer a variety of ways for you and your family to serve this summer. We hope you will take advantage of one of these opportunities to give back to our community in Jesus’ name!
