San Marcos Mission Trip this summer
Our church will be in mission this summer--will you be part of it? We will send a work team to the San Marcos River Work Camp from July 22-28. While there, we will have the opportunity to supply home repairs, painting, and roof repair for the elderly and poor in the San Marcos community. The focus of our project will be repairing a home that was damaged by a tornado. Included in the trip will be floating down teh San Marcos River, dinner at the historic Gristmill resturaunt, worship at a local UM church, and a day at Schlitterbahn Water park. Great outlet malls are there too!
IF you can't participate by actually going to San Marcos, then you can participate by helping the mission committee raise the funds to go. Mission committee met last night and thought of several ways to raise funds. May 20th we will have a potato lunch after church (be sure and invite friends so that we can raise more funds. Details will be in the paper. We're sure to need help with preperations for that lunch. Also on tap will be an Indian Taco Dinner in June, and the flamingo flock is also stretching their wings to visit people's yards--be thinking of who you'll want to "flock." Also, if you wish to make a special contribution to the mission committee, we will put it to good use! If you do wish to attend the trip, a deposit of $30 is needed by the end of April. You will be expected to pay up to $100 more as an individual.
