News and Notes


July 1 – 8


Cherokee, NC VBS:

          Last week our team of 30 youth and adults did an outstanding work with the Cherokee Church of Christ in Cherokee, NC, helping put on their Vacation Bible School. The VBS attendance increased throughout the week and our young people did a fantastic job working with each child and teen that was a part of the event. A special thanks goes to our adult sponsors who came on the trip and helped make this effort possible. Please keep the Cherokee congregation in your prayers & that this work will bear much fruit.
