2015 Serve the City Project
A Letter from Rev. William D. Lucas:

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in Saturday's Serve the City. Because of your efforts and commitment to embodying the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we packed over one hundred homeless kits for Star of Hope, made numerous scarves and gloves for local shelters, packed over a dozen large boxes filled to capacity with hygiene kits for Wesley Community Center, packed large bags of rice, and made snack packs for kids in need.

 We also cleaned up a neighbor's yard in West U, harvested vegetables and cleaned up gardens at Wesley Community Center and Agape Development Ministries, handed out food and supplies to people in need at CCSC and Wesley Community Center's Food Fair, and cleared two lots for Agape Development Ministries.

 We had approximately 100 volunteers on Saturday, made up of both West U members and scouts from Pack 266 and Troop 266. That means we put in around 350 hours of work! That's 350 hours of Christian service in Houston. Truly, God was and is glorified by this, and the Gospel was shared with many, many people!

A special thank you goes to Jean DuConge, our missions’ chair, who devoted countless hours to helping get Serve the City off the ground. It couldn't have happened without her and the rest of the missions committee.

 As we return to our jobs today, I ask that you continue to pray for all the work that was done and for the people who will be impacted by it. 

 Thank you all again...
