Texas Adult Mission Trip
Hurricane Harvey destroyed thousands of homes on the Gulf Coast last summer. Here in Cedar Rapids we had people from all over the country come and help our community during the Flood of ‘08. This is our chance to “pay it forward.” Pr. Craig will lead a team from First Lutheran the week of March 17-24 to bring “Iowa nice” and the love of Jesus to the shores of Texas. Cost is $599 a person. Must be 18 years old. Questions? Call/text Pr. Craig Brown @ (319) 310-6888 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
