We kicked off Serve Week yesterday with our Blessing Bags project. Our teams put together bags with essential items like toothpaste and deodorant for those in our city who are homeless. Families served together and showed some love to our neighbors - thanks for making a difference!
Our Slovakia team is on their way! Pray for them as they travel and for the student leaders they will meet and minister to! ✈️

"I want to say a massive THANK YOU to the church from our whole team! We are humbled and deeply grateful at how the church rallied around this trip, both through your prayers and giving. Your support allowed us to proclaim the beauty of Christ to the youth of Bratislava, while at the same time coming alongside to encourage a young team of Slovak nationals who have a heart for their country. We already see His fruit from our time there, and we're very hopeful to return next summer!" - Laura Troutman, Slovakia Trip Coordinator
Join the team tonight at the GraceLife Building to hear more from them and see how you can get involved with the trip next summer.
