From Brady to Bob: Missions and Relationships have no age restrictions.

Our mission group of 17 people had an awesome time serving our church community on July 11-12, and visiting the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter on July 13-14. While staying at IBC Princeton, our group got to clean and tidy up the former Cavalry Baptist property in Bluefield, as well as serve about a dozen families in our IBC community. We were able to do things such as yard work, wash windows, cook and deliver dinner, and spruce up the IBC property outside a bit. The group got to serve, cook for, and pray with people whose age ranges from infancy to Miss Virgie. Our mission team members ages range from Brady to Bob; from infancy to retirement. Take note, church. This is intentional. This is what the body of Christ should look like: the youngest to oldest not only being together, but serving one another, engaging with one another, and the older investing in the younger, showing them what being a disciple of Christ looks like. As a youth pastor, I got a realization of what 3 John 4 looks like this week. You may be hearing this and much more in a future sermon 😉 
 
Thank you so much to the several sponsors who donated to our Youth for this trip to ensure that they did not have to pay anything to attend. Our group (ironically) stayed at Immanuel Baptist Church in Lexington, KY on Sunday, July 15 where Dr. Kevin Ezell, president of the North American Mission Board delivered a message about being “on mission” (not so ironic that message was delivered during our mission week stay). Thanks again to all who prayed, gave, and volunteered to make this week memorable for our Youth group. We love you, Immanuel!
 
In Christ,
