Brookside CRC SERVE

Pic1Brookside CRC hosted a SERVE week the week of July 21, and went out and made a difference in their community!  Pictured at the left is a group who worked at Camelot Woods in Grand Rapids.  It was exciting for VIS to be a part of placing the SERVE participants throughout the week, and we thank God for the willingness of the young people to want to give up a week of summer vacation to learn more about how to serve through our examples.
