March 12h-16th, we will travel to Smyrna, TN to serve Wherry Housing Community and stay in the dorms built for mission teams. While there, we will help with many labor-intensive projects, potentially including: roofing, painting, demolition, yard work/landscaping, etc. This is an awesome mission trip that is open to any middle or high school student. As with all of our off-campus events, a notarized release form is required. If you have any questions about this event or any upcoming student events, you can contact Cole Fullerton.
