Youth Mission Week of Hope 2022 departed on Sunday
Please keep our Youth Mission team in your prayers from June 19-25 as they travel to Charleston, SC to meet up with youth mission teams from around the country to serve the community and enjoy fellowship with other youth groups.

Heavenly Father, whose blessed Son came not to be served but to serve: Bless our youth group as they give themselves to the service of others this week in Charleston, SC; that with wisdom, patience, and courage, they may minister in Christ’s Name to the suffering, the friendless, and the needy. Preserve them as they travel; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them in safety to their journey’s end; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
