Summer Impact Highlights

The students’ week of worship, learning, fun games and challenging competitions was truly a celebration – filled with singing and dancing to the Lord. And why should it be anything less? Their generosity was astounding, bringing in $1,168 for Life Water, a mission project that provides clean water for people in Africa. We want to extend a sincere thank you to the 53 staff and youth and adult volunteers who worked at Summer Impact and made it such a successful event!  Click on the right arrow in the photo gallery below to check out pictures from Summer Impact.
