Program: Pastor Christina Berry spoke about a new local mission program in the Sauk Valley. 5 area churches have come together to support a program called "Unite Service Camp".   This is an opportunity for local youth to experience mission work in their community.  The first camp is scheduled for June 5 - 8 and the project goal is to paint 5 houses in 3 days. The youth will stay at Bethel Reformed church during the experience.  The churches are anticipating the cost to be $14,000 for supplies, and resources and seeking donations.   The motto for this mission experience is"  Love God, Serve Your Neighbors, and Unite Churches."  Thank you for sharing.
