This week Green Acres Baptist Church joined us from Tyler, Texas! They have several teams serving in various ways around City Union Mission.
One team from Green Acres is at City Camp with our campers, while their ministry team went out on Monday and canvassed area apartment complexes and neighborhoods, handing out 1000 invitations to a community carnival.
On Tuesday afternoon the ministry team and work crew from Green Acres set up an incredible free carnival for the community! They served for several hours, cooking hotdogs, setting up pop-bottle ring-toss, a cake walk, face painting, snow cones, and 4 inflatables!
When the City Camp and community families arrived at the carnival the kids loved it! The huge water slide inflatable was very popular! The families were able to get connected with City Union Mission’s programs such as the Community New Life program, the Vanderberg Youth Center, and Camp CUMCITO. Thank you so much Green Acres for sponsoring an incredible carnival!
