Youth Mission Trip

On Sunday, June 28, a youth group from St. James ventured out to Virginia beach for our annual mission trip. During the week, these teens were able to meet some new wonderful people as well as learn about the wonder of helping others in desperate need of assistance. In their off time, the group made sure to keep a blog going so as to inform others of their experiences both on and off the work site.
