On Monday July 22nd the youth group of the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Sedalia returned from their mission trip to Cincinnati, Ohio. With nineteen youth and five adults, these dedicated disciples were able to serve in a variety of different ways through a variety of different ministries. They served the ministries titled: Master Provisions, Matthew 25 Ministries, BLOC Ministry, and Church Under the Bridge.
They also visited the Ark Encounter and Cane Ridge during their trip. On Sunday morning the youth visited the Cane Ridge Meeting House, and conducted a run through of Worship they would lead later in the evening at a Ministry called Church Under the Bridge, in Lexington, KY. This Church Under the Bridge Ministry is a place where many of the homeless come to worship. All of the youth opened themselves up so that God could use their gifts throughout this service through personal testimony, song, the playing of the saxophone and violin, prayer, and the power of presence. Throughout their time in Cincinnati and Kentucky the Holy Spirit was overflowing their souls with God’s love, and that love spilled out into their entire ministry. We celebrate that these youth spent a week to be one with God’s Spirit and God’s people.
Thanks to their pastor, Rev. Dr. Chad McMullin for this information and photos.
