Over Presidents’ Day weekend, the youth of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Edwardsville went on a mission trip to Indianapolis, Indiana. We were hosted by Allisonville Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) where we spent our evenings and with whom we worshipped on Sunday. Our mission project was at WellSpring Community Center in Martinsville, Indiana. WellSpring provides emergency and transitional housing to families in a facility that previously housed a National Benevolent Association ministry. The trip concluded with a visit to Christian Theological Seminary where the youth enjoyed a scavenger hunt and visit with seminary students. Macy Sullen (Youth & Children’s Minister) says, “ “It was such a blessing to watch God use us as His Hands and Feet while we developed our own bonds, learning and working together.”
