Mission stays close to home

Instead of going on a mission trip to another part of the country, Memorial Drive Christian Church, Houston, Texas, decided to provide opportunities for every member to work in the mission field this summer without having to travel and raise funds. Seven Summer Days of Service is designed to help those in the Houston area June 7 to July 19, 2012.

MDCC members will be working on Thursdays in area food pantries as well as the Houston Food Bank; help with remodel a home at the Hope House Ministry; provide Vacation Bible School for children in the Hope House neighborhood; and work with Chain Reaction Ministries, a year-round effort to collect and repair bicycles for those who need low-cost transportation.
