More than 120 people representing Valley View Baptist Church, Leeds, in Birmingham Baptist Association; Calvert Baptist Church in Mobile Baptist Association; Westside Baptist Church, Jasper, in Walker Baptist Association; and a church in North Carolina participated in a Mission Serve project in Mobile July 17–24.
Based in Cumming, Ga., Mission Serve is a faith-based, nonprofit organization that exists to strengthen neighborhoods and improve individuals’ lives by working to eliminate substandard housing through volunteerism and community involvement. This was the seventh year the organization worked in the Mobile area.
The volunteers were divided into squads of 10–12 to work on homes during the day. At night, they attended worship services led by Steve Brown, pastor of North River Baptist Church, Roswell, Ga., who served as one of the project leaders, along with Clay Lewis, pastor of Calvert Baptist, and Chuck Davis, church development director for Mobile Association. They stayed at First Baptist Church, Satsuma.
