Churches participate in Community Action Project

Approximately 60 young people and adult sponsors from four local churches participated in a Community Action Project recently.
Led by Pastors Alvin Bueckert, Jordan Culp, Kevin Enns and Peter Rashleigh; youth from Mt Olive Evangelical Free Church, Trochu Baptist Church, Bethel Evangelical Missionary Church; and the Prairie Tabernacle congregation did a number of work projects including fence painting and repair, lawn mowing, hedge trimming, weed wacking, sidewalk sweeping, cutting tree stumps, fixing chairs at the Three Hills Community Centre, and window washing.
Altogether, the youth worked at about 15-20 homes in Three Hills and Trochu, for about three hours on the sunny afternoon.
Afterwards, the young people enjoyed a wiener roast at the PBI firepit and then watched a movie together.
Overall, the Community Action Project was successful as the young people from each church got excited about giving to their community as a tangible way to show the love of Christ in action. So excited in fact, that more than a few expressed to their pastors a desire to do a similar project annually, which the pastors are looking forward to continuing next year.
The Three Hills area Youth Pastors would like to thank all the many people from the different congregations who donated supplies such as squeegies, lawnmowers, and weed wackers. They especially with to thank Norm Campion and Town of Three Hills for arranging key projects for the young people to work at during the day and providing some equipment for these projects, LPR Concrete for providing work vests, and Koch Fuels for their donation of fuel.
