Reflections From Red Bird Mission Trip

During the Sunday, March 8th service, our congregation celebrated one of the ways we bring ministry outside of the church. We heard testimony from four of our members who spent the week of March 11 serving with brothers and sisters from two other UCC churches at Red Bird Mission in Beverly, Kentucky (part of Appalachia). Our volunteers were joined by one former member and one family member along with eighteen others to embody the love and grace of Christ through service to a community in need. The bulk of the work focused on rebuilding decks, replacing floors and repairing walls as well as helping to clean and organize the mission resale shop. The service recording is shared below.
