WORSHIP LEADERS –THUG (True Heroes Under God) youth group was in charge of the worship services on Sunday, Aug. 12. The group reported on their recent mission trip to Detroit. As always, these trips provide insight to lives less fortunate than theirs and the many people who regularly work together to insure these people are fed, housed, provided work opportunities and health care.

The mission groups, who come for a few days or weeks, are a vital source of outreach for these organizations. Jason and Angela Abbas are the leaders for the local group.
