Youth groups team up for project
A youth group from Shady Grove Baptist Church recently joined with youth from St. Luke’s Methodist Church in Decatur to conduct a local mission project.
For seven days, they built wheelchair ramps, painted a house and did lots of yard and landscape work. They also served meals to the homeless and enjoyed reading poems and visiting with residents of The Terrace in Priceville. They also grew spiritually through Bible study and devotions.
During free time periods they enjoyed swimming, playing putt putt golf and participating in other activities.
The mission team consisted of the following: T. J. Braswell, Andrea Carter, Crystal Carter, Morgan Doherty, Patrick Doherty, Taylor Jones, Willie, Charlice and Andy LaFavor, Hunter LaRoche, Regan LaRoche, Jenna Locklear, Dylan Newell, Shane Parker, Mason Solomon, Vinnie Sottile, Jordan Spinks, Andrew Terry, Matthew Terry and Rachel Terry.
Adults who worked with them were Clay Locklear, Beau Terry and several mothers. Mary Terry fixed goody bags for the kids and prepare supper one night.
