This week our youth along with other churches in the Central Florida Diocese participated in Homegrown Mission Week. Thank you for keeping our youth and leaders as well as the multitude of volunteers in your prayers as we worked on this project together. Through this labor of love our kids were able to give back to the community as well as have an amazing time while making memories doing it.
We were joined by youth groups from around the Diocese of Central Florida to do hands-on mission projects in partnership with local charities and agencies in Lakeland. We literally got our hands dirty volunteering for Agape Food Bank, VISTE, A Woman's Choice, Florida Baptist Children's Homes, City of Lakeland Lakes Division, Parker Street Ministries, local parishioners, the Dream Center and the Lakeland Police Department.
Here are some photo highlights!
