Urban Vision still needs help preparing and pulling off their Back to School Store! More than 200 people will come through the store on the 12th. What a simple way to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the families in North Hill. Could you help out on Tuesday August 8th (6:30-9:00pm), Thursday August 10th (1:00-3:30pm) or for the day of the store on August 12th (7:15am-12:00pm). You can sign up by emailing Regina Lewis at regina@urbanvisionministry.org.



Bible Camp is coming up August 7-11 and we will be hosting about 1000 kids between the morning and evening sessions! Bible Camp is one of our biggest outreaches to the community of the year and we are still looking for volunteers to make this week a success but the biggest need we have right now is for preschool and elementary teachers. Could you give some of your time that week building into kids? You can sign up at this link.
