Student Ministry Summer Mission Opportunities
Please be in prayer for our students this summer. Specifically we have 2 different mission activities the students have the opportunity to participate in: ‘Rocket City’ Mission Week (local service projects), and our Chicago Mission Trip.
This Sunday evening our students will travel to South Huntsville to stay the week at a sister church, that will provide lodging and meals, and partner with other area student groups to serve some of Huntsville’s impoverished neighborhoods. We will be involved in roofing, vinyl siding, and other projects under the supervision of some area contractors. Our students will learn a skill and we will have the privilege to serve.
In addition to this local opportunity we will be traveling to Chicago from June 30-July 8 to partner with Craig & Elizabeth Priestly that serve as church planters in the West side of Chicago near Humboldt Park. They are part of a house church network that is seeking to bring the light of the gospel to diverse neighborhoods in that part of the city. We will be involved in children’s ministry, service projects, and some yard renovation for the Priestly family.
For the yard renovation project we are looking for financial support. They are wanting to use their house and yard to reach families on their block and they are in need for space to do so. This Sunday, you will see some details to the project in the foyer outside the sanctuary. We ask you to prayerful consider giving a gift to help us with the project costs.
I am looking forward to a summer of serving and pray that God would be glorified in our efforts. Please join us in prayer for these opportunities.
