Help Hosting a Missions Group!

On June 14th and 15th Ekklesia will welcome the Clearview Baptist
"Road Rules Mission Trip"  to the Pine Belt. This group of Senior High
youth from Birmingham, AL are venturing to explore what it means to
literally "be the church". Instead of going to summer camp or relaxing
on the beach they're jumping on a charter bus and heading to
Hattiesburg, New Orleans, Panama City and Atlanta. Their goal is
simple: to meet the needs that cross their path. We will focus our
energy on renovation projects at Court Street and Hawkins. There are
still a few project manager slots to fill. Let me know ( ) if you're
available to help out. Here's the plan for Hattiesburg on the 14th and
15th of June.
