Students from UMC churches

seeking area mission projects

On Wednesday, July 20, about 100 students and adult sponsors will be “camping” at The United Methodist Church campus while using their time and talents in mission projects in a program known as “Big House”, according to church officials.

Churches who will be sending fifth thru 11th grade students are Wildwood, Lexington, Chandler, Dayspring, Quitman and Rose Hill United Methodist churches. The students will be in Frankston thru July 24.

Area residents who need some help with repairs, painting, yard work, reorganization and other chores are invited to contact the Frankston church office at (903) 876-2235 as soon as possible to be considered for one of the job sites, church officials say.

Those who know of someone in the general area who needs some help are urged to contact the church office. The Big House group is looking for 10 to 15 job sites.

The program is designed for students who are excited about helping others, a cornerstone of Jesus’ teaching, sponsors say.

UMC Frankston hosts want to help the students have the best experience possible, so getting the job sites set up is described as imperative.
