The youth and families of the Capital District of the Rio Texas Annual Conference United Methodist Church served at Community First! Village; an incredible community made of tiny homes to end homelessness in the City of Austin.
Participants engaged in various activities including gardening, working in the chicken coop etc.
The most important part of this service project was the fact that participants worked alongside residents of Community First who used to be homeless. The relationships built last weekend inspired us to continue engaging in mission work at home and far beyond our walls. It is a privilege to see over 50 people from the Capital District from various churches come together for a common mission of being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in our Community.
