(transform your local community)

Each month, we offer a mission opportunity right here in our community for a few participants.

In February, we will be serving at Washington Street Mission (a local, downtown shelter) as we work to refresh their facility. 

Saturday, February 9th, from 11:00am-3:00pm

Washington Street Mission Address: 408 N 4th St, Springfield, IL

We will be painting, so bring your paintbrush and rollers if you have them!

Questions? Please contact Pastor Nicole Cox.
