As preparation for this week, we went to Northview Heights to check it out for planning purposes.  Andrew told us about what we might expect to happen. We saw and heard about the stage that is finally finished. We heard we may be the first group to use it. We are excited about this week.

Transforming a home

by Rebecca Bell | July 2, 2019 12:03 PM

We landscaped a home which will be transformed inside and out, and then given to 2 families who currently live in Northview Heights. We are looking forward to seeing what God does with this home and the people's lives who will work on it, and then the ones who live in it.

We made connections with many of the children and their families. We were able to share the love of Christ with them, and we also talked about Jesus to some.  We even were able to pray for some people today. This picture represents how much love we have with the community.
