Car Wash Supports Mission Trip

Members of the Sandy Level Baptist Church Youth Ministry will are busy raising funds for a mission trip they plan to take to Greenville, MS.

They will be holding a carwash fundraiser on Saturday, June 16, from 9 am–Noon at the Sharpe Shoppe BP on Blythewood Road at the entrance/exit to I-77.

They must raise $7,000 to cover the cost of the trip, and according to the church’s youth Pastor Jake McClure, still need to raise about $3,000 of that amount.

About 30 middle and high school students from Blythewood will take part in the ministry.

The youth missionaries have attended an 8-week training course to prepare for the trip. They will stay at the Parkview Baptist Church in Greenville.

Mornings will be spent conducting a Vacation Bible School at Solid Rock Baptist Church. Afternoons will be spent  with local outreach projects for the community.

“Our students do this every year and they sacrifice a significant portion of their summer because they want to help others,” said McClure.

“The leadership of our team believes that this trip makes our students more bold in sharing Christ locally as well.

Approximately 5-10 adults will accompany the students on the week-long mission.

Financial donations are also being accepted in addition to the car wash donations.
