South Street, Central, Brentwood, and National Avenue Christian Churches received the Council of Churches of the Ozarks' Church Collaboration of the Year award for 2015. This is the second year in a row for South Street to receive the honor, which was announced recently at their annual Celebrate Compassion gathering.
The churches are being recognized for the Wine into Water evening that they presented in February to raise funds for Week of Compassion's efforts to supply clean drinking water in African communities where it is currently unavailable.
That event included wine and beer tasting as well as a silent auction and other activities. Read all about it here. It was such a success that planners decided to do it annually, so watch our upcoming events for next year's date!
