Hands On Ministry Projects
Thursday, Jan. 29th, 1 - 4pm

 

John Wesley said if you want to find God, you need to spend time with the poor, because God is with them. Since "Engaging in Ministry with the Poor" is one of the four areas of focus, we are providing local service opportunities on Thursday afternoon Jan. 29th from 1 - 4 pm for persons who would like to participate.

 

Transportation will be provided. Plan to be in the Hotel lobby by 12:45pm.
