Independence Day Celebration
On July 4th, the Mission held its Annual Independence Day Celebration picnic. Many joined us for food, fellowship and healthy activities. We began with a short chapel service followed by a picnic complete with hot dogs, hamburgers, watermelon and all the fixin’s! Our Free Medical Clinic ran a Healthy Hearts Fair where those in attendance learned ways to live a healthier lifestyle!
