MISSION TRIP: The Mission Trip group had a great week at  Point Pleasant, WV.   They worked on building a ramp to a home. Having traveled there several years, they enjoyed the friends they have made in previous years and making new ones. Not only did they share their carpentry skills, but they shared the love of Jesus with the people we met.  We joined teams from the Dublin and Marysville Presbyterian churches for this outreach experience. Thank you to everyone purchasing subs in support of the Mission Trip.
